I've never lived in a city actually. Biggest town I've lived in was 1,000 people.

I'm only 21 but have visited 35 of the 50 states (multiple cities in most states). I personally think it's quite a bit for my age! I have yet to do the northwest. The reason I've seen quite a few is because I followed my favorite band around for about 3 years- across parts of the country. We mostly did it just to roadtrip and get to see the us!

I've lived in the Hartford, CT area, Orlando, FL, and Waco, TX (for school), but am now looking for my final destination now- most likely south of CT.

I don't really know which option to choose....

I've technically lived in 4 places, but 2 of the cities were really close together in one region of the country, and the other two cities were also really close together in another region. So I can't really say that I've lived all over the country, but I have lived in more than one place.

As far as travel goes, I've seen a lot of places, but many of them were when I was younger. My recent travels have been limited.

Outside of living in Boston for a few months for college, I've lived in the Philly suburbs for my whole life. I've been to slightly over half of the U.S. and probably really seen around 8-10 states.

an option for me isn't there. i grew up and lived in the same city ~25 yrs, and am still in the same state, but have traveled all over the US and stayed in multiple cities for weeks/months at a time.
