List Rules Vote up the license plates that give design envy.

Do you live in a state with an ugly, poorly-designed license plate? Or perhaps you live in a state with license plates that flawlessly unite great aesthetics with a design to represent your state? 

A great license plate isn’t just about beauty; it’s also about representing the unique aspects of that state. Some proudly display or declare the unique features of its landscape, such as Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, Arizona’s Grand Canyon, and Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes, while others highlight national landmarks like South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore. Others prefer to highlight industry, such as Wisconsin’s proclamation of being America’s dairyland and Florida simply, but proudly, placing its oranges in a prominent location on its plates reminding us where our orange juice likely came from. 

America’s license plates are as diverse as the states they represent - so which one do you wish was on your ride?
