I live about as far east in Ohio as Ohio goes, and I would disagree with the Ohio-Pennsylvania match. There's only a fairly small part of Ohio that resembles Pennsylvania in terms of landscape or economics. Columbus is as Ohio as it gets, and it resembles Ann Arbor more than it does anywhere in Indiana or Pennsylvania.

Ohio and Michigan share an automotive history. Both have industrial towns that have seen better days. The football rivalry makes Ohio and Michigan like two siblings that don't get along.

I'm sure the person I was quoting meant Arkansas (AR), as did I.

Arizona is much closer to New Mexico than California.

Neat thread though! Kudo's to the OP. The ones that come to mind for me are:

Texas/Oklahoma
Alabama/Mississippi
New Mexico/Arizona
Kansas/Nebraska
Tennessee/Kentucky
Georgia/South Carolina
Ohio/Indiana
North Carolina/Virginia
Colorado/Wyoming
Oregon/Washington
Massachusetts/Connecticutt
Vermont/New Hamsphire
North Dakota/South Dakota
Michigan/Wisconsin
Maryland/Delaware
Utah/Idaho
Pennsylvania/New York
I kind of like this list the best. Although a quick tidbit about the Carolinas. Perhaps cuz I live in Charlotte I see the similarities and share an MSA with SC. However, Asheville and Upstate,SC share a DMA, Charlotte "swallows" 4 SC counties in its CSA, and I've heard that Fayetteville and Florence are quite contemporaries.

I also, for some reason, pair Indiana and Illinois, AL and MS, NM and AZ. I don't see Texas and Cali as having twins. IMO, they are the 2 most unique states.

True, but I think that NC and VA come closer to being twins.

How so? Just curious not sayin I disagree. The only roblem I see with that is some VA folks who don't claim being Southern while NCians will claim New South at the very least.

Virginia is in a spot where it's both northern and southern. I'd say North Carolina is safely southern.
