I like the Colorado/New Mexico state line area between Taos and the San Luis Valley, around Raton Pass, Chama & Pagosa Springs, all remarkably beautiful areas where the high desert, the plains, and the Rockies meet. Also the Utah/Colorado state line where red rock country and the western slope of the Rockies meet. The transitions in scenery between states exemplify the iconic landscapes the states are known for. The whole four corners region (AZ/NM/UT/CO) is a really cool area.

The Oregon/California state line area around Siskiyou Pass which includes nearby attractions Mt. Shasta, Crater Lake, and the Redwoods and a gorgeous coastline is an area I'd like to return to.

The Connecticut/Rhode Island state line area on the coast has some of my favorite beaches and coastal towns in New England (Misquamicut Beach, Watch Hill, & Mystic).

Mississippi/Tennessee because of Memphis.

Outside of the poll, Missouri/Kansas because of Kansas City.

They say you haven't seen America until you've experienced the majesty and the splendor of our state borders.

Is it nice around the MISS/TN border? I've always heard Memphis is real rough...but isn't the MS side pretty decent? Are Oxford and Starkville considered part of the metro?

No. Oxford is closer, but without looking it up I’d say it’s not part of the metro. They’d be stretching it if it is.
And it’s not particularly a nice area. Not horrible, but not great. Memphis has a lot of rough areas but still kinda cool. I just like it better than anything else on the list. Mississippi has some of the better suburbs as well as the eastern ones in Tennessee. The Arkansas portion is much more sparse and not much there other than an old dog race track and some hit and miss residential areas.

Sometimes a state line can be very conspicuous on the ground. Along old US-90, there was a very pronounced change in land use at the Florida-Alabama line.

There is a noticeable change between Marinette WI and Menominie MI, that reflects the differences that can be seen all the way through those very different states.

I've never been across the Montana-South Dakota state line, but it is beautiful country up there.

I've crossed the Missouri-Kentucky line, on the Hickman Ferry. Also, crossed from Oklahoma into both Colorado and New Mexico.

It's the opposite for me. I technically live in Alabama, but I buy my groceries and nearly everything else in Florida due to no tax on groceries and sales tax about 2% lower. Gas is a little cheaper in AL though.

Of the poll choices - GA/SC, because I love Savannah. Honorable mentions go to GA/TN (Chattanooga/mountains) and FL/AL (beautiful beaches).

Outside of the poll, my vote is for the WA/OR border (Columbia River ).
