Are there any states that border one another that you often forget share a border? Or very culturally different states that share a common border?

For me the top two would be Oregon-Nevada or Colorado-Kansas.

I would argue that Colorado-Oklahoma is more easily forgotten.

Yeah....I lived in New Mexico which borders both of those states and forgot all about that. I bet people in Colorado probably forget that

Oklahoma and New Mexico. It's weird to think that OK actually borders 6 states. It's the panhandle.

When you live in Missouri you never forget which states border you, there's eight of them.
Feels like you're being crowded, like siblings in the back seat, " Move over, get over on your side."
That's why we are famous for border wars. And we have nothing in common.

I often forget that New York and Vermont share a border. Also that New York shares a border with Quebec. For some reason, New York-Ontario is a given in my mind, but New York-Quebec I always forget.

There are no paved roads crossing the border between Montana and South Dakota - in an exceptionally remote area of the northern High Plains.

I think the Missouri-Tennessee border may be overlooked, but it does have highway access (I-155) across the Mississippi River.
