This was as close as I could get to the OP's question but it beats the heck out of pure speculation.

It was a simple question as the article claimed to show who was interested in travel. But enjoy your high horses.

That is a very bizarre, close-minded comment, especially considering the sheer beauty of states like Georgia, New York and North Carolina.

Have you ever been to the North Fork of Long Island? The shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont? The Outer Banks of North Carolina? Oglethorpe Avenue in Savannah? The Great Smokey Mountains? Mohegan Bluffs in Block Island?

Trust me, there is absolutely nothing like any of the above in either Arizona or Colorado.

Also, the vast majority of people in Arizona and Colorado are aloof, hedonistic, humorless Mormons and transplants from the Great Plains states. They think they're something special, but they most certainly are not.

I guess their brains are fried form the intense summertime heat and having worked in the four R's of the Intermountain West economy (i.e., Recruiting, Real Estate, Retail and Rental Car).

Please.

Why are you being so defensive, like your response is really out of proportion. There are plenty of places in Africa that nothing in Texas compares to or has an equivalent of, but I don't have any interest in visiting or its people. Not an attack on the continent, I just have other priorities.

Default Which state's residents have visited other U.S. regions the least?

How would I know? Most of the people I know or have met have traveled to a different region.

One small sample doesn't answer your question.

The sheer distance, requirement to cross through another country or lengthy air travel would be certainly be a deterrent to visiting other states.

That's not to say that people in those two states aren't well traveled, but they may not necessarily have ties to the rest of the continental US (i.e. Hawaiians having ties to Asia).
No. People in Hawaii get island fever. Lots of them leave, or at least travel even though it is expensive, I met a ton of Hawaiians when I worked in Alaska. Alaska is majority transplants, so most of them have traveled before as well. Actually, while I'm sure they exist, I met exactly 0 people who lived in Alaska who have never left the state. Even a guy who lived in a village of 300 people only accessible by sea plane had been to Seattle before.

I only met one person here who has never been out of Washington State. What's ironic is this same person has been to more cities within WA than anyone I know. It seems she has been to every single city in the state (mostly with her family) and can tell you interesting stories about them...yet she hasn't even stepped foot in neighboring Oregon.

It's hard to believe that somebody who has been to Vancouver, WA didn't sidle across the bridge to Portland or somebody who has gone to Pullman didn't drive the seven miles over to Moscow, Idaho. Spokane and Coeur de Laine, Idaho are kind of the same trip as well. Vancouver, BC or at least Victoria would be pretty easy to stumble into if you were in NW Washington.


It sounds as if she doesn't leave the state by design.

Precisely. Back in "impoverished, provincial Mississippi/Louisiana" I met plenty of people who had been to California and even heard of my hometown (Irvine, California, not a particularly well-known city).

It's the people on the coast who don't travel to flyover country.
