Using nothing more than your gut reaction, based on similarity and common image, which two states would you most likely to be considered "twins"?

I'll go with....Vermont and New Hampshire

(note: It gets tricky when you consider states with the same names. VA and WV are some 180 different. NC and SC are merely neighbors. ND is issolated on the Canadian border; SD gets droves heading to the Blackhills and Badlands.)

South Dakota gets more tourism than North Dakota, but they really are twin states- I have lived in both, they are both very intertwined, and not a whole lot of difference between the two besides one having the Black Hills and the other not.

I'm not going to say they are "twins," but they are much more than just neighbors.

I agree with all of your suggestions. Some of the relations are more fraternal twins than identical. One I have not heard of, probably because I am a Southerner, is MN and WI. Another suggestion is AL and MS. Maybe even the gulf region of Texas and Louisiana. AZ and NM also come to mind.

I should've put a question mark by Mississippi and Alabama, because it can get really tricky with some particulars.

In the Charlotte metro, the two states have interplay. Frankly, for the rest of NC, there isn't much SC relationship evident at all. To a lesser extent, vacationers might relate the two states to each other along the coastal border and the greater Myrtle Beach area.
