Illinois seems particularly "meh"- and it was that way while driving through it across the country last year- the only state that didn't really stand out in any way to me.

I can't disagree with the choice for South Dakota. The Black Hills are beautiful.

And Indiana stood out to you? They are both very similar.

Most of the expressways don't run through the most beautiful parts of Illinois, so it's not terribly surprising.

You should have checked out Starved Rock State Park

Disagree on their choices with these states

Delaware - There has to be a beach on the Atlantic more impressive than wherever that gloomy picture they took was.
Hawaii - Waimea Canyon or Napali Coast > Haleakala
New Mexico - White Sands > Carlsbad Caverns
Rhode Island - Block Island > Newport Cliffwalk
Utah - Arches National Park > Monument Valley
Vermont - Lake Willoughby > Green Mountain NF
Wyoming - Grand Tetons > Old Faithful

South Carolina's pick seems to be lacking. There are only a few upstate and none of them are all that spectacular. Heck, I love waterfalls, but it seems to me somewhere like Cypress Gardens' pond would have been a better selection.
The photo of the falls is from the air closer to the US side.

I can't complain about PA's photo, but I might have chosen Delaware Water Gap.

True, very similar.. We did go to the awesome Indianapolis Museum of Art and its grounds so that's why it probably stood out more- we just breezed through Illinois on the way to Ohio.

Having explored both Kansas and Arkansas, I can completely agree with both. I always lived very close to the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in Kansas and would visit it quite often when I wanted to do some walking. They recently added a new visitors center, but I haven't checked it out yet. As for Arkansas, I feel it's a bit too generalized. The Ozarks are nice, but some parts are much more nicer than others.
