Come on, we all know people who barely like leaving their house. It's not that far-fetched.

My first girlfriend was excited whenever I took her to the grocery store with me. It was the strangest thing ever.

After a certain age though, that's on them. I just think that it's funny that they would broadcast that on social media, but then again, it beats seeing people going clubbing in _____, when they can do that where they are from.

First, Cali is a city in Colombia. The name of the State is California, it is abbreviated as "CA".

That being said, I cant say I know anyone that hasn't left the state on vacation or business, especially since a good 1/3 of the population is from somewhere else.

And you are right, where and when a person wants to visit is their own business. There are people I know in Missouri that never ventured more than 50 miles from their home.

People can say "Cali" or whatever they want to say, who cares?

There's people who rarely or never travel outside their region (which is one thing in a places like New England where you can visit multiple states in the same day), but then there's also people you'll meet in some places in the States where people don't really feel the need to even visit a adjacent state. In Oregon there's people who go the same spots on the Oregon Coast or Cascades for every vacation, but don't even consider taking a trip to places in Washington State--though they're about the same distance away(and from Portland, Washington is just over the river). For some reason staying within state borders gives them more comfort I guess...

Many of them brag they never left the Island. ( Cape Ann is technically an Island)

You'd be very, very surprised.

Rhode Island is, perhaps, one of the most provincial, insular places in the entire country.

No matter how big or diverse a single state is (California or Texas, Florida is long, but lemme tell you geographically it's not diverse. It's pretty, but not diverse. I been to pretty much all over the state except places like Jacksonville, Cape Canaveral and Key West) it doesn't compare with taking in the beauty of this whole country. I've lived in 2 states and have been in 7. I can't wait to visit more and move into one more as well.

I like to travel to other states, but it takes a minimum of four hours to drive from where I am to another state, and even then I'm only in Vegas. So the fact that I haven't been to many Midwestern, Eastern or Southern states is more about my family not liking really long road trips and airplanes being expensive, than a lack of desire to visit those places.

It does seem weird that people would be so reluctant to leave their home state. It's not even like you need a passport to get there or they speak a different language or use different currency. Very strange.

Obviously, nobody cares. I think all states should have a cute abbreviation. Do you prefer Wissi or Whiski?

You don't need mountains to be diverse.

KW is very unique(beautiful architecture/ocean); that can rival many places in the country.

NASA - John F. Kennedy Space Center - Alligators and Rocketships

Cape Canaveral(see above). Same for Jax with St River. The 'doesn't compare' is pretty much subjective.

People from other states say "Wisky" and a bunch of other, far more irritating than "Cali," abbreviations. I merely don't spend time correcting strangers or worrying about it
