    I count driving through a state as visiting but if you were just on a connecting flight, I don’t count it. Also I count any state you live in.

    Well, I guess that makes four for me :slight_smile:
    California, Nevada, New York, Florida. All obvious tourist destinations - I'll let you guess which particular places I went to on holiday there. :slight_smile:

    Um, I'm from Pennsylvania.

    I've been to...

    New Jersey
    New York
    Virginia
    Maryland
    and
    Florida

    I've also been to Washington D.C. but I don't think that counts. Oh and I passed through Delaware a few times.

    Live in Pennsylvania.

    Have been to New York
    New Jersey
    Maryland
    Florida

    May have passed through more states during my two trips to Canada, but I don't remember if we just went up through New York or drove through the New England area. I don't think we did though

    So 5, more if we took the New England route.

    So I’m originally from Texas. Growing up, we lived in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and Massachusetts. Then I was stationed in Michigan, Hawaii, California, and Virginia. I’ve got that I’ve visited in Montana, New Mexico, Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Guam, and Puerto Rico. So 14 states and two territories.

    I've been in every continental state in the US, most of them more than once, and have lived in 5 states. Haven't been to Alaska or Hawaii yet.

    I live in Nebraska.
    I go to Iowa regularly for shopping, and South Dakota a lot to see a few family members.
    I've been to Colorado, Minnesota, Virginia, Maryland, Florida, and Illinois for vacation. That brings me to 9.
    I've technically been to Texas and Michigan before, just as layovers.

    I think this is pretty accurate, though it's possible that I missed a few I briefly drove through or something.

    I would love to visit Ohio and West Virginia, someday. I don't know why but something about Ohio, Cleveland specifically, appeals to me. And West Virginia is where my best friend in high school was born, so I feel a connection there. I'd like to stay relative to my own time zone (EST) but I am open to one day visiting California and Illinois (because I'd like to visit Chicago).

    Not a bad number, for a European, I'd say! Helps to have worked for an American company.

    My most visited state is, surprisingly, Idaho. I kind of consider it my second home, as that's where my boyfriend's family is from.

    The South is high on my wishlist to go visit sometime. Would love to drive all the way from Florida to Texas sometime.

    I'm pretty sure I've been to all the contiguous 48--no Hawaii, no Alaska. I don't really have any kind of clear memory of Nebraska so it's possible I've never been there...

    All 50 of them, and lived in three. A few foreign countries too. My family took a lot of vacations as a kid, and my fiance (first time I've used that word instead boyfriend, woo!) likes going on long road trips. My overall favorite is Florida, where I also live currently. My favorite for a vacation is of course Hawaii. My overall least favorite is Mississippi.

    I'm originally from a suburb of Cleveland. I can see it being a decent place to live if you're raising a family or something, but other than that, it's pretty boring and slow. It's also frozen solid half of the year due to direct impact from lake effect snow, and rapidly losing its population to other places for a reason. Columbus is the best, youngest, and most fun Ohio city (I lived near there too).
