My husband and I have been to all 50 states. Our latest goal is to play golf in all 50 states.  So far, we have golfed in 34 states. Every state has its good points and interesting places to see.

All 50 - my last was Missouri in 2016 at age 53. Besides traversing the country to see relatives, I saw a few states when I went for something work related and the rest were either on a bird watching or National Park related trip.

30 so far

So far I’ve had the good fortune to visit 48 states with Alaska and North Dakota to be visited. Alaska in August then maybe North Dakota next year. I’ve also had the privilege of visiting 71 foreign countries, 6 continents, sailed on 3 oceans and numerous seas. Very very fortunate.  And nearly all of this with my dear wife of 39 years.

I've been to 13 (NY, NJ, CT, RI, VA, FL, TX, CA, HI, TN, GA, ME and PA) as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

13 and D.C. I guess that makes me the homebody of the group, so far. 😉

I was a hard working farm gal but as the saying goes “you can’t keep them down on the farm forever!”. So in 1973 at age 19, I joined the USAF. It was the first time I was on a plane while flying to Lackland AB in San Antonio, TX. It wet my whistle to all things travel, as well as 2 years later for my husband, another USAF vet. We saw 15 states during our Air Force years and also lived in Germany for 2 years. After we were discharged in 1977 we went on a cross-crountry, budget tent trip visiting old USAF friends and seeing as many National Parks as we could in a 6-week period. It was a fantastic summer of seeing the beauty of 35 states! Our travels were curtailed a bit for 2 decades while raising 3 kids but we did manage additional family trips to the East Coast or Florida. When the last child got out of college in 2008, we concentrated on seeing the final 15 states with the last 3 being Alaska, Hawaii and North Dakota (for some reason we missed that state on our cross country trip) completing all 50 states by our 40th wedding anniversary in 2015. Besides the beauty, travel gives you a wealth of knowledge and appreciation for all of humanity. We are all so alike but still somewhat different no matter if you live near or far. I hope to be able to continue to travel here and overseas for years to come!

All states, as well as Puerto Rico, Washington, DC, US Virgin Islands. Also, 29 countries.

I have only been to 14 + Washington DC so I have lots of traveling to do, right!

I completed my states over eight years ago, with my former job getting much credit for taking me to some less popular states.  My husband and I, and a friend, drove from Nashville to Wyoming and picked up the last states we needed for our states' map.  I am now set on bicycling in all 50 states, and lack about ten in that quest.  Too bad I didn't take my bicycle with me on my work trips!

I have been to 29 states...I have lived in 5 of them...I have yet to visit the New England states and that is on my list for next trip...I am retired now and want to travel to as many of the remaining states that I have not been to...When I lived in Ohio I was situated better to visit them, however I was to young and and my family didn't travel much except in Ohio..Now that I am retired it makes it easy to accomplish..

I have only been to 20. I would like to see Oregon and Washington because of their gardens.

 

I especially loved visiting Ohio. The Topiary Park in Columbus, Ohio was amazing.

We have been to 38 states. Most of them when we took a cross country trip. We are blessed with a beautiful country! We would love to visit Alaska!

Contributor

I've been to all but Oklahoma, and North Dakota, though as for Tx, I've only been in the airport (many times). Also, the time i've spent in Mississippi and Alabama have been brief. I'd love to take a long roadtrip and see these states and many that I love. I've lived in 6 states.

27 besides the one I live in and DC

I have been to all 50 states, and Washington D.C. The last state I got to was Alaska in 2003.  The least traveled in state for me was West Virginia; I was only in WV for two days in 1984.  My favorite state is my native state of California, where I live. The favorite state that I don't reside in is Virginia, for its' history.

I've been to all 50 - taught for 34 years and was single for over half of them. Every summer, I'd jump in my car and knock a few more off my list. After visiting all 50, I began to travel abroad - so far to about 20 countires.

Periodic Contributor

I have been to all 50 states and Washington, D.C.  I have lived in 10 different states and have two children -- one born in California and the other in New Jersey.

 

On my bucket list is visiting the only two continents that I have not visited -- Australia and Antartica.

My husband and I have been to 31 states together. We only count the states that we have actually vacationed in and not just passed through. We are soon to retire within two years and hope we can complete all 50 states. I myself have been to 36 states, but we are counting those we have done together. Our next destination will be Michigan.

I recently read that the average American has visited 12 states, which puts me in a unique category of having spent time in 41 of them. I have yet to visit Washington state, the Dakotas, or the northeastern states. The good news is having experienced multiple coast to coast moves, I have become a well organized packer while continuing to downsize over the years. My kids will appreciate this one day when they discover that my life consists of a stack of journals, photos I have meticulously catalogued, and a couple of shoe boxes of mementos. Recently, I moved to South Lake Tahoe, CA from the east coast so another trip is not immediately in the cards. Should that day come, I would head directly to Maine, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  What I have learned throughout my travels is that you must talk to people in every state you visit to appreciate new surroundings, cultures, history, etc.  By discovering and accepting other people’s differences and similarities, you can learn so much more about yourself -- provided you make time to listen.

My wife and I have been to all fifty states and most of them at least twice or more.
