Part of driving to different states is looking at the "Welcome to" sign for each state - especially when you're going through quite a few. I think it's interesting to see what each state does for their signs. Some states will have the simple green sign with white letters stating you're in the state, while others will have elaborate signs with the state motto, flower or other information. Some states will have a few signs posted as soon as you arrive stating the various driving rules that may be different from the prior state. Well, last week, as we crossed from North to South Carolina, we stopped at South of the Border - which is just across the state line. Since we took the exit before the actual state line, and got back on after we crossed over, we missed the Welcome to South Carolina sign. We did see it on the way home though - and it's just a plain ol' sign, nothing fancy! Do you like marking your time on the road with the state line signs?

Unfortunately - we don't cross too many state lines when we travel. The only state lines I've crossed through a car travel is Nevada on our way to Vegas, Arizona on our way to the Grand Canyon, and Colorado from Arizona. Other than that - everytime we visit a state - we fly into it. And it's interesting how culture changes from one state to the next. I think just the changes in plate designs are interesting!!

Yeah, in the mid-west and west the states are bigger to it doesn't happen as often. Here on the east we can drive through 3 states in a matter of hours!

I used to do that when traveling with my family on vacations. I remember when we moved to Colorado and seeing the large wooden sign at the border saying "Welcome To Colorful Colorado." Of course, almost all of the interstate travel I do is by plane now, so I don't get the same experience.

I have a picture of me by that sign! The one on 70 from Kansas. I still like to drive places if we can, but it's very time-consuming!
