I'm curious where you read/heard this, because it isn't accurate.If one is located in downtown Chicago, IL (the Miracle Mile) and heads due south, the state one winds up in before the the Gulf of Mexico is.....
The coordinates of the Miracle Mile are 41.8948° N, 87.6242° W.
If you head straight south on that line of longitude, at approximately 30.2578° N, 87.6242° W, you enter the Gulf of Mexico between Orange Beach, AL, and Gulf Shores, AL, just south of the Phoenix West 2 Vacation Rental Condominiums.
