For small Massachusetts obviously you're going to get a lot of bordering states.

For states that don't border:

Florida (When people's grandparents are in town!)
New Jersey (Lots of people from NJ choose Mass for higher ed)

*I'm not counting Maine because it's only separated from MA by 18 miles of the NH seacoast.

tried keeping track of all the out of state plates while on my walk. California, Idaho, Washington, Arkansas, New Hampshire, Oregon, (Bordering states Oklahoma, Louisiana). Also saw two Florida's, but they appeared to be Rental cars.

I live less than 2 miles from Duluth, Minnesota. I see Minnesota plates on a daily basis.

There are many Minnesota residents who are employed in Superior, and many Wisconsin residents who are employed in Duluth.

Nevada: Tons of California plates; sometimes it seems like every other person I run into is from Sac or the Bay Area. Utah and Arizona are also common. Oregon and Idaho are surprisingly rare considering they touch our state.

Illinois; obviously the surrounding states, especially IN and WI, and increasingly more MN plates as well, as Chicago and Minneapolis have had a growing relationship in recent years. You'll see most Midwestern plates here too, but you'll rarely see a "plains state" plate. It's rare to see a Nebraska/Kansas/Dakotas license plate here. I see more Pennsylvania and Tennessee than those. I think it has to do with populations, those states are pretty low populated places, by in large.

Yep. Florida from all the snowbirds using it as a tax address. Iím in a coastal town with a lot of oceanfront vacation homes. You see plates from all over. New York is the 2nd most common non-New England plate.

Good, because most western states, including mine, Colorado, are big, so a Utah plate in Denver means someone has come a long way, at least 300 miles.

I posted previously about what plates one sees on I-70 through the mountains. I have been traveling down to Denver a lot lately d/t my husband's illness. In the hospital parking lots, I see Wyoming (at least 100 miles away) and New Mexico (at least 200 miles) the most, also a few Nebraska plates (about 200 mi.).

On the road to Denver, it's mostly California and Texas.

In Idaho I see handfuls of California, Oregon, and Washington plates daily. Being from the southeast I was surprised at how many Alaska plates there are too.
