You probably know that there are 50 states in America. (If you are one of my readers from another country, you might not have known this, in which case, you just learned something new! Congratulations!) Every state, with the exception of Alabama (sorry, Alabama), has an official state nickname.
If you live in the U.S., you most likely know the nickname of your own state. But, do you know the nicknames of the other 49 states? (Probably not.) So, I've compiled this list of the TOP 10 STATE NICKNAMES. After reading this, you will have new fun facts to impress your friends. Also, if you ever go on Jeopardy, this information might help you. (Note: Some states have many nicknames; for the purposes of this list, only official nicknames were considered.)
