This random US county generator picks a random place in America from 3,245 different options.

In the United States, counties are smaller subdivisions of states. In total, there are over 3,000 counties and county equivalents in the USA. County equivalents include the boroughs of Alaska and the parishes of Louisiana, among others.

I have previously created a random US state generator and a random US city generator. The state selector covers the whole country, but it doesn’t offer a very specific location. Meanwhile the city picker focuses on more densely populated areas.

A random US county generator is perfect for picking a random place in America. It covers the whole country on a suitable scale. This generator covers all the states and territories of the United States.

Random US County Generator

This randomizer is based on Wikipedia’s list of United States counties and county equivalents. Each result comes with the name of the county, its state or territory and its population in the 2020 census.

This is not the only random destination generator that I’ve created about the United States. Here are the other generators for the United States that I’ve done:

I have also created multiple other random generators for different places and topics. For example, I have created random country generators for the whole world as well as different regions. You can find all of them on the Random Generators page.

About Arimo Travels

This website is a sustainable travel blog that I started for my 777-day trip around the world. I have later switched the focus to flightless travel, but randomness is also a part of the site’s DNA.

I have picked random destinations for my travels multiple times. When I was younger, I threw darts on the map of Europe to pick destination for my train journey. I have also traveled to a complete random place anywhere in the world.

I spent five weeks in the United States during my world tour. I arrived in California on a cargo ship from New Zealand. I did some volunteering and Couchsurfing in California and Arizona. I also made a brief stop in Las Vegas. The photo at the top is from my stay in Los Angeles.

For the full itinerary of my trip around the world, see the RTW route page.

The idea for this random destination picker came to me by chance. As I researched ideas for new random generators, I noticed that some people had searched “random US counties” on Google. I’m from Finland and not from the US, and I wasn’t really aware of the county system.

I noticed a generator like this didn’t exist yet, so I made one myself.
