    I live in NY.
    I've been to NJ, PA, MA, CT, MD, TN, AL, FL, TX, OK
    I could be missing one but i think that's it.
    I would love to visit the west coast. We almost had a short trip planned to the PNW but the timing wasn't good for taking off from work.

    NJ, NY, CT, MA, MD, VA, DE, Washington DC, GA, AL, TX, CO, AZ, ID, HI, and CA. I might have driven through RI. I don't really remember. I also visited FL but I was 1 year old. I stopped at MIA many times. I guess airports don't count because if they did, you could add UT and MN to the list.

    My goal is to visit all 50 states!

    I live in NJ, grew up in the Midwest, and I'm only missing Hawaii and Alaska. My parents thought summer vacations should be all about learning about our nation, so lots of trips to far away places. I am grateful for their energies in this endeavor.

    Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi. I was born in Virginia, but my folks moved to Utah when I was 3 weeks old, and I've never been back. Some people say count Virginia, some people say don't as I have zero memories. I've lived in Utah, Nevada, and kind of Virginia.

    I've been through or stayed in most states with the exception of a few East Coast states. Hawaii is my favorite state in the winter. Alaska is my favorite in the summer. My most memorable road trip was from South TX to AK. Within about an hour of the trip, I saw a big sign that said, "Welcome to Mexico." I took a turn in the wrong direction! :) It is nothing short of a miracle that I made it here.
