In Florida, it depends on what side of the state you're on. Here on the west coast, especially during snowbird season, I see Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Ontario more than anything else. When we visit relatives in Palm Beach, it's New York/New Jersey for miles.

I have noticed an uptick in Virginia and, strangely, Colorado plates in the Tampa area. I know (or at least assume) they're not snowbirding because they're spotted in summer months, and their tag decals are usually expired.

Honorable mention would go to either Texas or Georgia.

Ontario, Quebec, Toronto and British Columbians from Canada.

NE state and New England state licenses are seen here a lot.

Ditto for NY, NJ, MD, Indiana, Ohio and Maryland. Then there's Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin.

The Canadians drive the slowest of them all and in the fast lane. It is so frustrating and they stop right when the light turns yellow.

I always thought that was cool when I was visiting northern washington, getting to see all those BC plates that I had never seen anywhere else before. I remember searching for Washington plates while riding in the car as a kid, and it made Vancouver feel like such a foreign place to me back then haha

In southern Florida (a mecca for snowbirds and the like), seeing out-of-state license plates is a given. However, depending on where you are, will affect which license plates you see. I live near Aventura (between Broward and Miami-Dade lines) and the majority of out-of-state license plates are New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ontario/Quebec. Most people down here don't even realize that Canadians make up the 3rd largest immigrant group in South Florida (after Cubans and Haitians); mainly since they are only here for 6-10 months. Areas such as Hallandale and Hollywood are filled with Quebec and Ontario license plates. Since I use to live in PA, I feel like I tend to notice more out-of-state plates. On the other hand, in Naples and Southwest Florida, I've seen more Illinois, Michigan, Ohio (and other Midwestern states) license plates.

Wisconsin easily and Illinois.

During summer the folks who have a home down in FL or AZ are back home and you will see more FL and AZ plates than IL plates. a lot of the rental cars from the airport have out of state plates so it makes it hard to tell who is from where so that can really skew some peoples views..

I've rented a car in Arizona that had California plates. more ironic, a rental car i got in Chicago had Minnesota plates.
