We were very fortunate to have the time and ability to visit all 50 states.  We drove thru most states in our motor home when I retired in 2004.  What a wonderful experience that was, we enjoyed most the one month we spent in June 2005 in Alaska.  We have stayed 3 winter months each year from 2006 to 2017 in Florida and then 3 weeks in Hawaii in 2017.  Its a wonderful country.  John & Marilyn Ralston, Totowa, NJ

  • 49 states. When I was in college, I set a goal to visit all 50 by the time I was 50. That didn't happen, I'm 64 and still have to visit my last state, Alaska
Contributor

All 50.  Checked off number 50, Oklahoma, about a decade ago upon landing in Tulsa for a week in Branson, MO.  There are still many places within the States that I'd love to see or return to visit again.  For example, this last fall I had my first opportunity for a folage sight-seeing week in New England.  Fabulous!

All of them except Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.  The United States is a very interesting place and all of our own historic sites should be visited by all of our citizens before they go hopping around the world to other countries.  I have run into people who have never been out of their native state!  Weird!

I've been to every one except Hawaii.  We did many camping trips when we were younger and also business trips.  There are still some places I would like to see, and some I would like to visit again.  I don't think I'll ever make Hawaii.  I don't like to fly, never did.  When we were flying several times every summer, I would think I would have gotten used to it.  Unfortunately, I think I liked it less, the more we flew.  I always like rugged, outdoor areas and visiting National Parks; but as I get oldER, I think I prefer to visit cities.  My favorite big cities are San Antonio, San Francisco, and Chicago.  Seattle is nice, too, and we enjoyed Wilmington, NC.  I would like to go back to Victoria, BC, on Vancouver Island.  Beautiful!!!!!  I regret never going to Great Britain.  Should have.

Been to most all Midwest and west states, going to hit northeast soon. Only one after that is Hawaii

I've been to all 50 states & several countries in Europe. Most of the provinces of Canada, too, except for the far northern ones. This year I will be in Denmark & Sweden.

Periodic Contributor

I've been to most of the Canadian Provinces, too.  Missed Newfoundland (the ferry was expensive and the weather was terrible).  Don't think I've been to Quebec and not the Northwest Territories or Nunavit, either.  We got the Yukon when we went to Alaska.  I don't think I'll make it to Europe but I'd like to go to Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, too.

My husband and I have been to all 50 states, including all the provinces in Canada. When we retired in 1999 we sold our house in Ohio and traveled for 10 years. It was really great to get to see all of America. We wrote what is today caled a blog to be able to remember our journey. Our website address is: www.rvtravelog.com.  Check out our adventures if you are interested. Now in our late 70's I'm not sure I could do it again, but I sure wouldn't take anything for what we've done in our past.

I have visited or lived in 41 of the 50 states of the United States. With my wife and I now retired and living in Mexico, we concentrate more on visiting the states of Mexico rather than the United States. As of our vacation in February 2019, we have been to 25 of Mexico's 32 states.
