Florida-Born and raised in the most central portion of the state and have traveled around all areas since nothing is that far of a drive

New York- Have family all over the NYC metro and some in upstate

California- Southern California

Illinois- Chicago metro

WA- Seattle metro

Those are all areas I've visited multiples times throughout my life, and feel I know pretty well.

States I know the best:

1. Texas (born and raised here!! No doubt that I know a lot about Texas and it's people. But I do miss it sometimes).

2. Arizona (lived here in Arizona now for 9 years. I like most of it, but some parts I'm not very fond of though, because of the people, things to do, and such).

3. North Carolina (lived there for 2 1/2 years when I was in the Army, Ft. Bragg. Love this place and surely do miss it. If I had a choice of it or here, I'd say I'd love to move back to N.C.).

4. Florida (been there at least 4-5 times since 1999. Love the beaches there and the little shopping stores there for swimsuits, beach wear, and such).

New York: I haven't been everywhere in New York, but pretty close. I try to add new places every year. I take most of my vacations in New York, my home state. There is SO much to see and do. The one area I'm least familiar with is the far southwest of the state (Alleghenies, Chatauqua etc). That's always been kind of out of the way for me so I want to get that crossed off the list soon.

Arizona: I haven't been there for a long time but I traveled extensively there when I was a kid and later after college. My grandparents used to live in Flagstaff so I know northern AZ better than the southern part.

Vermont: More familiar with the western part of the state than the east (especially around Lake Champlain). I try to go there every few years and explore.

Tennessee: I went there multiple times many years ago and would like to visit again, but I'm sure it's changed a lot. I have been in all areas of the state.

New Mexico: I can't say I'm "familiar" with it but have crossed it a couple times and was always highly impressed with its beauty and culture. It truly is the "Land of Enchantment."
