I don't know how people come up with Massachusetts, a zillion things come to mind there....the pilgrims, boston tea party, the Kennedys, Mitt Romney, baked beans, blah blah bla. It's a small state but never forgotten. Can't be Maine either, Steven King, the lobsters, it's geographic location of being farthest north on the east coast. New Hampshire like Iowa is known for politics but they have no corn there, and speaking of which, just try to forget about the corn tonight while you eat and drink all the things that come from corn. Ye of little faith that buy real maple syrup instead of inexpensive and delicious corn syrup........I feel sorry for you.

Also, how could one forget about South Dakota ? The corn palace in Mitchell (most important attraction), Wall Drug, Mt. Rushmore, Sturgis, the badlands, Indians ect. Wyoming and SD feed off each other and compliment each other well, If you go to the badlands, you might as well go to Yellowstone and Jackson Hole. The range war thing and history of the old west floods my mind with SD and WY.
You do realize that the journey was from PA to NJ, about 40 miles from Delaware

For me DE is Dupont and Chemicals, the first state (oldest state actually), Credit Cards and no sales tax

For the record, I don't forget any state, although some make little to no noise and some I'd like to forget, lol.

But...

I live in Utah, and Idaho is very quiet.

I agree with those who say that New Mexico flies under the radar, a lot, in its mysterious way. I always think the "Mexico" in New Mexico makes it obscure.

I don't forget any state, but I haven't found good enough reasons (for me) to visit some:

North Dakota, Kansas, Mississippi, possibly West Virginia, Wisconsin (although I know it's beautiful, see reason to go, it's just too out of the way) - I'll drive through it. Michigan also sounds worthy of a visit, but I don't even know if I'd find call to drive through it to get somewhere else. I suppose when I've seen the rest I might make an effort to add some of these to the list. I think I'll probably step over into Kansas when I'm in Kansas City, MO.

Most states, though, I've found reasons to visit, and every state has something about it that comes to mind, and I know where every state is.

Oh, and for those few people who mentioned that Utah is forgettable, open your eyes and ears, look at some pictures and travel more.
