The states with the most native-born residents
As if living in one state your entire life precludes an interest in traveling?

Personally, I think a better indicator would be the percentage of residents with passports.

That's true. It's a bit biased though towards states with a lot of immigration.

While CA having 50%+ of its residents having passports doesn't surprise me, I would wager that a very significant amount of them were born in Asia and Latin America.

I'd say Westerners. When I've suggested I'd like to try living in Minnesota or Wisconsin, people always try to dissuade me. Though I doubt I'll be moving there for at least a couple more years.
