I haven't visited nearly as many states as some of you here but here are the states that I have visited:


I really enjoyed Montana- natural beauty with amazing views. The city I liked the most from my travels so far has been Salt Lake City. I hope to visit Boise early next year. Also, next year I will add at least three more states to my list.

I've passed through all the states that I-75 passes through with the exception of Florida. I've passed through all the states that I-55 passes through with the exception of Louisiana (you can see a pattern here). And I passed through Alabama.

The two states I was visiting was Mississippi and Georgia. I've only ever lived in Michigan.

I've gotta say, there's some lovely geography along the way, but I nearly stared into oblivion passing through Illinois and Missouri. All the ideas that came into my head seeing noting but flat land was interesting to say the least. Who knew nothingness could be so inspirational.

Florida- I live here.
Georgia- drove through
South Carolina-visited my aunt there six years ago.
North Carolina- visited the Appalachian Mountains
Tennessee- same as NC

But I might be visiting Mississippi sometimes next year if my uncle and his fiance have their wedding there. She's from Mississippi.

However, I do want to go to Colorado, Utah, Idaho, New York, California and Alaska.
