as i currently live in tn, i would say, w/out a doubt, that kentucky is tn's twin. typography is very similar, kentucky has those beautiful grazing fields for which even tn has to feel a twinge of jealousy. personally, i wouldn't have a problem living in ky, w/ the exception of their state income tax. i remember some of the beautiful lakes and rivers in eastern ky. it is worth the scenic drive, when coming back from the eastern states and/or washington d.c. oh, one over thing that i don't like in their commonwealth is their toll roads, although they are well kept.

if the states ever marry, our states should marry. our child could be west virginia. lol

The closest thing Texas has to a twin is California.

New Jersey's twin has to be either Maryland or Connecticut.
NYC plays a similar towards NJ as DC does for MD. Newark--Baltimore, very similar in a few ways. Both the states are amongst the wealthiest states (side by side in rankings)... It seems like a reasonable comparison.

Connecticut is probably a closer twin.
Hartford is similar to Trenton based on crime stats, size, and history. CT has a bunch of midsized cities which most unfortunately turned out to be undesirable (as does NJ), and confidentially both states have some of the lowest poverty rates, and some of the highest education rates in the nation (thanks to the freeloading governments both states became burden to. "Those damn tax sucking states!")

You see the chain?

Florida and Louisiana seem comparable. Both states are subtropical, used to be considered uninhabitable swampland. Both states have similar climate with humidity, similar topography, similar wildlife (the presence of alligators, types of snakes, etc.). Both states experience short and unpredictable rainfall in the summertime and are prone to hurricanes. And both have unique cities that are unlike anywhere in the U.S. (Miami and New Orleans).

Louisiana is Florida without Disney World.

Oregon/Washington

Georgia/North Carolina

Tennessee/Kentucky

Colorado/Utah

Arkansas/Alabama/Mississippi (triplets)

I know some of those will raise questions, thats just how I see them.

Im in Michigan too, and I agree that Wisconsin would be the closest. Wisconsin is so similar that you almost dont feel like your in another state when you are there. Accents are the same, people the same and the landscape is the same. I do think our side of Lake Mi is a bit nicer though. We should get something since we are saddled with Detroit and they are not. They also have the packers and we are stuck with the Lions. I wonder if Ohio wants Detroit AND the Lions lol
