I love this one in Mississippi:

It says,"The South's warmest welcome."

Louisiana also has the bilingual version:

Most of the Illinois welcome signs read "The People of Illinois Welcome You" or "Welcome to Illinois...from the people of Illinois."

"We're glad Georgia is on your mind"

I've always liked that one and West Virginia as well.

I love Texas and always love to come home, but I have to admit our Welcome To Texas signs are boring:

Though I have always liked our anti littering signs:

I love the signs that welcome me to my native state of Louisiana - GEAUX, SAINTS! (Wait, what do you mean, that has nothing to do with football???)

Speaking of home, I like Mississippi's signs:

This one makes me feel good!

Not true. Illinois uses "From the People of Illinois" under "Welcome to Illinois"

If states can "use" slogans, why can't they "welcome" people? Abstractions can do lots of things. Curiosity can even kill cats.

I like how Delaware tries to cram a whole bunch in there. "Hey, we're the first state." "Oh, and we're a small wonder." "Hey, by the way, in case you forgot, there's no sales tax here."

"P.S. buckle up."
