I've spent time (overnight, days, weeks,...) in most cities in the US that would be considered major, but I've never been to Houston, Seattle, or San Antonio and have only driven through Chicago a few times without staying. The two that I want to visit most are Seattle and Chicago.

I've been to New York, Washington, Seattle, Miami, San Francisco and Orlando. I'd like to see Boston, New Orleans, Portland and Chicago. I'd also like to return to New York and explore it properly because I haven't been since I was a child.

I've driven through Atlanta and stopped before but didn't get the vibe of the city. Back in 1999 I went to Atlanta to visit cousins and all I remember is the drive from the airport and back to the airport and lots of trees on the way, unfortunately it ended up being a family trip where all we did was stay at "home" at my cousins place instead of doing anything exciting so I cant count it.

For the cities I still want to see, check the second list. My goal is to see all 50 states and all major cities in the next 4 years.
