State nicknames you might have missed

Ever heard of "The Beehive State"? How about "The Tree Planters State"? Those two nicknames--for Utah and Nebraska, respectively--are among the unofficial monikers listed on this page, which might come in handy for trivia buffs.

Surprisingly, relatively few of the listed monikers have been officially adopted by the states. The names that have been sanctioned are presented in boldface, but even some of those may be unknown to many, such as "Land of Enchantment" and "The Natural State."
