Find normal, then head west. You’ve reached West Virgnia; a place that was formed out of the turmoil of the Civil War, and has become renowned for coal mining and mountain-living. If you want to get away from it all, head to the west of the East. Head to West Virginia. Buy Prints Here.

Arkansas is a special place, but it’s undervalued, underestimated and overlooked. Can you name a city in Arkansas other than Little Rock? Didn’t think so. It might interest you to know that Arkansas is the only state in which diamonds are mined, plus it’s home to Bill Clinton and to a large portion of the Ozark Mountains. If you’re out of the loop on Arkansas, you’re truly missing out. Buy Prints Here.

When it comes to history, Massachusetts is very wealthy. It’s the birthplace of great leaders like the Kennedys and the Adams, cultural awakenings like the Boston Tea Party and the abolition of slavery, and important institutions like Harvard and the Boston Red Sox. It may have some quirks, but I think the Mayflower picked a stellar place to land. Buy Prints Here.

There’s no place like New Mexico. Seriously, it has a mix of Spanish and Native American roots that can’t be found anywhere else. As the fourth largest state, New Mexico is commonly known as The Land of Enchantment. This is not just a state to be in – it’s a state of being. Buy Prints Here.

 

Not all mottos reflect the true nature of a state, but North Carolina’s comes pretty close. Esse quam videri means “to be, rather than to seem.” This state is the 10th most populous, yet it flies under the radar of public life. Its beautiful and varied landscapes, and its good-natured people stand unaffected by outside influence. They are who they are, through and through. Buy Prints Here.
