It's almost impossible to live in New Jersey and not eventually travel to New York or PA, we share a water border with Delaware so I'll throw that in as well. I regularly would go to Philly and its burbs or visit family in NYC. Delaware I would only go to if I was driving south on 95 to get to DC or Florida.

I've been to all the states that border Ohio but haven't spent significant time in them except for Michigan.

It's almost impossible to be a Delawarean and not have gone to any of our three neighboring states. The state is so small and Maryland, Pennsylvania and New Jersey are all right there. I've gone to all three literally by accident (and in the case of New Jersey, wasted $4 in the process lol).

This is something I kind of love about living in a small state. Here in Rhode Island, I'll go out to dinner elsewhere in the state, set my GPS, and surprise, I end up cutting in and out of Massachusetts to get there. It happens all the time, and I actually live as far from a state border as you can in Rhode Island.

Part of New Mexico borders a very small piece of the Oklahoma panhandle. Never been over to Oklahoma yet, not in any rush so I might not ever get there.

A better question would be "What states that are within TWO of your borders have you never been two", since for me (from Maryland), the nearest state that I HAVEN'T been to is Michigan, which is three states away.

You can walk across Rhode Island in only seven hours at a normal walking pace.

I have been to 49 states (minus Alaska) so everywhere I have lived I have been in every state that borders it.

When it comes to living in Missouri, I was in Kentucky, but there's a distinction to these states that border each other: they are the only two states that border one another where you cannot access one from the other directly. One has to go through Cairo Illinois to achieve it.
