Alaska and Hawaii
or The Last Frontier and The Aloha State
The two states that don’t border another state in these United States
Both the last two states to join the Union.
Both have a really high cost of living. This is because not only are the two desirable states to live in, but they are so isolated, so far away from most other places where most things are produced. The high cost of shipping causes everything in both states to be much more expensive. That said, Alaska has a lower cost of living compared to Hawaii.
Perhaps because of the high cost of living, both states are slowly losing residents.
Both are dominated by their largest cities. Anchorage, in Alaska, and Honolulu in Hawaii. Around half of all Alaskan residents live in the Anchorage metropolitan area, and more than 2/3 of all of Hawaii’s residents live in the Honolulu metropolitan area.
Both have dramatically diverse and beautiful natural scenery, and both have dramatically diverse rainfall patterns. It’s kind of crazy actually. Ok, so in southeast Alaska in the coastal mountain ranges there, they can often get more than 200 inches (508 cm) of precipitation a year! While just south of the Alaska Range they get about 60 inches (152.4 cm) a year, 12 inches (30.5 cm) a year in the interior, and less than 6 inches (15.2 cm) a year in the North Slope.
