Actually, it's I-24 which dips back into Georgia on its way between Chattanooga and Nashville.

Pensacola Florida is also right next to Alabama.
I know right, People forget that much of Florida is directly connected to the deep south. People assume Florida is just Orlando, Tampa and Miami when Florida has huge landmass. Jacksonville is not that much different from the rest of Florida once you get pass Downtown. Calling Jax Georgia is like calling NYC Jersey.

A great majority of school chldren in Texarkana, Arkansas, and Lewston, Idaho, were born out of state. The only regional maternity hospitals are in Texarkana, Texas, and Clarkston, Washington. I think the same might be true of Bristol, Virginia/Tennessee.

I wonder how that works for families that need state Medicaid for maternity.

Wow, I was just thinking about BOTH those cities (Texarkana and Bristol) reading this thread.

Yep, there is a Texarkana AR and a Texarkana TX.

Another one is Columbus, GA - it butts up against the Chattahoochee River and Phenix City, Alabama.

Sioux City Iowa is not large at all but it borders Nebraska and South Dakota. Its often confused with Sioux Falls which borders Iowa and Minnesota.
