The pop culture images of both states seem remarkably different, but if you familiarize yourself with their history you'll see there are many ties.
Agree 100%. Louisiana is not Bourbon Street. Texas is not cowboys and Indians. For the most part, both Louisiana and Eastern Texas are both full of pine trees, termites, and trailer parks.

Not quite how I'd put it, but okay.

After looking up and down, right to left, left to right at the map of the U.S., I gotta agree with those that said Oklahoma and Colorado.

Kentucky is very different from Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. I'd also argue West Virginia to be very different Ohio, and from a modern standpoint most of Virginia is very different from most of Maryland. I'd also say Texas and New Mexico are pretty different as well as Kansas and Oklahoma.

I don't get that all. Baltimore is certainly a standout, but the rest of Maryland essentially felt like a distilled version of almost everything in Virgnia.

Maybe that's the case with Northern Virginia, but I wouldn't say that's the case with the rest of the state. I feel like the majority of Virginia is still quite southern and more akin to North Carolina, definitely down around Richmond. Only my opinion, though.

I actually found Kentucky and Indiana to be very similar. Though, there's no place in Indiana quite like Lexington, and there's no place in Kentucky quite like Gary, I found the people in both states to be very much a like. They look alike, talk alike. Obesity and smoking are big problems in both states. There are awesome doughnuts and pork to be eaten in both states. Indianapolis and Louisville has a lot of similarities IMO. Both are conservative, but not as conservative as the Deep South or the Great Plains.

Though Kentucky is known for its beautiful mountains and pastures, some parts of Western Kentucky are surprisingly ugly. Indiana is stereotyped as being a very ugly state, and the Northern half most definitely is, but Southern Indiana is gorgeous. Google "Brown County State Park," and see for yourself.
