Re: How many U.S. states have you been to?

I have visited 24 states, and drove across 4 others. I had the opportunity to travel a good bit when I worked, so most of it was on business.

 

I was especially impressed with NYC. It was freezing cold in February (a business trip), but I bundled up, got out and walked around and enjoyed it very much. Even though I had traveled alone, I felt very safe. Later, a second business trip allowed me to enjoy it in better weather with my colleagues. We had a great time, visited Chinatown, Little Italy, and enjoyed some fabulous food!

 

For vacations, we enjoyed hiking trips in North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee in the east, and Colorado, Nevada, and California in the west.

 

On my list - Washington DC, Montana Glacier National Park, Arizona Grand Canyon, Utah Badlands.

49 states + DC + Puerto Rico + US Virgin Islands + Guam +  Saipan.  Will need to make it to North Dakota some day. In case anyone is wondering, not military--just love to travel!

I have been to 35 U.S. states.  I am only counting the ones I have actually stayed in or done something significant in.  I may have driven through a few of the 15 states I have yet to travel to, but did not stop at all, except maybe a meal. 

 

I am still working full time, but it is my goal that shortly before I retire and then after, I will travel to the remaining 15 states.   Unfortunately, our children and grandchildren live a great distance from us, so much of my vacation time is used going to their locations and not any new places.  I think I can managed quickly to get to these remaining states, especially after I retire.  Several of them are near each other so that will make it easier.
