Including my home state I have been to 28 states and I count 24 cities .

NYC
Philadelphia
DC
Pittsburgh
Richmond VA
Charlotte NC
Columbia SC
Charleston SC
Savannah GA
Atlanta
Miami
Knoxville Tenn
Mobile Ala
Chattanooga Tenn
New Orleans
Houston
San Antonio
El Paso

Of those 24 cities the ones I have spent the most time in (a month or more) include NYC ,Philadelphia, DC ,Salt Lake City and Charleston SC.

For the most part I have driven between these cities. Only some of it was by air. I like to drive.

I left out some cities I just passed through but that's just me.

100,000 is your threshold? Sorry, I don't have the hours required to compile my list.

Same here.

Simply put--look at the list on this web page. I've been to all of them except Anchorage and Honolulu. Most more than twice.

LOL I have no doubt that my list is pretty average among serious travelers but I have seen more of the country than my more worldly(they think*S*) NYC relatives. What I might do is compile a list for another thread of some of the more out of the way but interesting places I have been.(Second Mesa Arizona for example).

I wouldn't say that among "serious" travelers your list is even remotely average. I've been to all the states except AK and HI. I've been to all except ND at least five times. Only been to ND twice. Once in the winter. I won't make that mistake again.

I don't consider myself a serious traveler, and I've been to 20-some countries.

Great list. Of the cities you have been to right off the bat I would like to get to Chicago. I have never had deep dish pizza and I would love to see a game at Wrigley Field.I have been within 100 miles of Chicago (Mt. Vernon Illinois) but that's as close as I got and I had no time to go as I had to get home.My father was with me and veering off to see Chicago just wasn't in the cards. lol

Lots of California cities on your list. I lived out west for a year and never went. The closest I got was Laughlin Nevada. I could kick myself for that but I figure California isn't going anywhere .Gives me something to plan for.

I counted 73 cities from that Wikipedia list. But I live in California so that makes it really easy. In an average month I probably pass through a dozen of those "large" cities in my regular activities.

This reminds me of the time I realized the startling (to me) fact after the Census released its figures: California has far more cities with population greater than 100,000 than any other state.
