-New England (CT, VT, NH, MA, RI, ME)

-Southeast (VA, NC, SC, TN, KY, WV, GA, FL, MS, LA, AL, AR)
-Upper Midwest (OH, MI, IL, IN, MN, WI)
-Plain states (ND, SD, IA, NE, MO, KS, OK)
-Southwest (TX, NM, AZ, CA)
-Western Mountain states (CO, WY, MT, UT, ID)
-Pacific Northwest (WA, OR)
-Alaska
-Hawaii
Besides the obvious individual states of Alaska and Hawaii, I don't see the Mountains States discussed that much. Colorado is mentioned occasionally but the others less so, especially Wyoming and Idaho.

I know, Cairo, IL is a different world than Duluth, MN, but when we think of regions and the states that make them up it seems to always come down to where the major population centers are (and yes, I know Columbus, Dayton and Cincy are not really that "Northern", despite what some may say).

So, basically, the entire Midwest is the Upper Midwest? Makes sense. That's like saying the entire Northeast is New England, or the entire West is the West Coast.

Did I say that? No, I did not. I said Ohio has a border with Canada.

If I had felt so inclined, I might have pointed out that both Ohio and PA have borders with southern states (the Mason-Dixon line is PA's southern border for the most part) as well as Canada, and that perhaps these two are in a special situation. I did not address Illinois, which was referenced in your post.

Ohio is upper, lower and eastern Midwest at the same time.

Of the lower 48 states, I say the Plains States are the least recognized.

Nebraska- that forum is barely breathing and the state rarely gets any recognition on the General U.S. or City vs City forums.

The interior Northeast gets the least recognition. People on the coast just assume that it's the Midwest.

I'm glad Omaha and Nebraska doesn't get much recognition on here. Its growing too fast as is and we don't need any more of yall here.
