Default States that are similar to their neighbors

Oregon and Washington are very similar, I wouldn't say they're exactly alike, because Washington just feels "bigger", even though physically it's smaller, but it's logical to think of the two together.

The Dakotas are very similar too, as are Mississippi and Alabama and Arizona and New Mexico.
New Hampshire/Vermont------Interchangeably New England
New York/Pennsylvania-------"Giants" of the Northeast
New York/New Jersey---------NJ and you. Perfect together!
Minnesota/Wisconsin/Michigan--The North Woods aka the Lake District
Illinois/Indiana/Ohio----------The Midwestern sisters
North Dakota/South Dakota--Dakota central
Virginia/West Virginia--------The Old Dominion
Maryland/Delaware/Virginia---Delmarva & Cheseapeake
North Carolina/South Carolina---Carolina central
Kentucky/Tenessee----------Long & thin with longer & thinner!
Mississippi/Alabama/Georgia---The Southern sisters
Mississippi/Arkansas/Louisana--Bayou Country
Texas/Oklahoma-------------They fit together like a puzzle on a map!
Alaska/Hawaii----------------Stuck off the same map!

To follow-up the above post, yes...Alaska and Hawaii!

I know it sounds weird at first, but there are many similarities beyond weather.

They were both admitted as States within a year or so of each other. Both are very isolated from the lower 48. Both are difficult to get to by any means other than air. Both are expensive. Both are quite independent and go "their own way". Both are escapes. Both are almost completely surrounded by water, Hawaii of course, totally. Both are considered exotic in their own ways. Both are tourist destinations. I really don't know where to stop here.

Also both were US territories during WW2 and were attacked by the Japanese. A small part of Alaska was actually INVADED and occupied by the enemy!

I know they are just lines, but when crossing states you can really tell a difference, and each state seems to have its own character.

I currently cross back and forth between Washington and Idaho multiple times a week, and there is a distinct difference between the two, even when I cross at different points.

I can't say I'd group any states together.
