Missouri/Nebraska
Florida/Alabama

MO/KY is strange because both sides of that border feel isolated as hell from the rest of their respective states.

Maybe when you're in the western half of PA it could be PA/Delaware but I'd imagine there's a lot of traffic between the two around SEPA. I don't really think any of the states PA borders can be considered forgotten or strange.

I think this brings up a great topic of discussion. Even though states share geographic borders the laws of the land can change drastically depending on what side of an arbitrary line you are on.

Philadelphia actually has a pretty significant economic and cultural link to a lot of Delaware. Being from New Jersey I find that Philadelphia/Bucks County are a worlds away from the West Virginia border and some of the mountain towns in Pennsylvania.

Do you mean down to the Missouri border?

These are "strange" or "forgotten" only for the geographically challenged.

Y'all need to get out more.

I'm definitely not geographically challenged and in fact take a great interest in studying maps and learning geography of different cities, states and countries. I'm a nerd and practiced until I could identify all 54 countries in Africa

I think that very rural border areas with no major metropolitan areas nearby and the irregular shape of many states are some of the reasons why some borders go forgotten.

Minnesota has a maritime border with Michigan between the MN Arrowhead and Isle Royale in Lake Superior.
