    Aargh! There are so many I don't remember them all. Here's a couple. I'll add more if I think of them.

    California - Golden State

    Nevada - Silver State

    Missouri - Show Me State

    Here's a website that lists them all. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._state_ni...

    Funny but most Americans don't think much about it - at least not outside of our state. Our tourist boards really like the nicknames though! I really should have remembered some of them though.
