I have visited all six New England states, but I have only left New England once in my life (on a trip to Florida).

I hope that changes in the near future!

Sadly, I live in Stockton, California and I've only been outside the state of California to go to Reno once.

truer words have never been spoken. it's very easy to figure out who here speaks from experience.

Default I've been all over the East Coast

I've been all over the East Coast, but I still haven't seen all there is to see in my own county. That is how great Aroostook County is..........

Not really. Just not thinking you need to see anything else. I know people in their 60's and 70's that not only have never left their state, but have never left the County they were born into. Granted that is in Aroostook County, Maine and the County is 6600 square miles in area. But there it isn't unusual to find people of any age that have not traveled out of Maine. Finding people who have never been to the "Big City" of Bangor (35,000 population) that is 2 1/2 hours away is very common.

Not poor people, just people who have ZERO sense of travel and that there is more out there than they are used to. I have been told by many up there that it is all the same as "The County" so why bother driving several hours to see the same things.
Everybody I know who makes decent money has traveled out of state, especially since most of them have at the very least one family member who lives in a different state. The only people I have ever met who told me that they have never in their entire life traveled out of state have been people who are on welfare. That has been my personal experience.

I feel bad for you. I also live in Stockton, California but I've been all over the west coast including Vancouver B.C. I would love to travel the world someday.

I've been to 30 states and 4 Cannuck provinces , + Mexico several times. I've lived in the NE (Me.), SE (Fla), Midwest (Mich), and Texas (which is like a whole 'nother country)! I think I might want to move to Alaska though. I liked Maine pretty good too!

I live in CT and most people travel outside the state daily, if not once a week. A number of families have second homes outside of the state in addition to the commuters who take the train into NYC.

I've lived in CT most of my life and I must say that people here travel very often.
