All but Hawaii. Was in Alaska last year for a few months, once is enough. But a beautiful state outside the cities. My favorite part of the US is the Southwest: Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado (Mountain State).

Everyone but Alaska. I think...I'd been up in Canada one year in the back of beyond so I might have put my toe over the line...LOL.

Hawaii, Alaska, Nebraska, the Dakotas are the only exceptions less far, but that will change
I've been to British Columbia several times and had planned to "shoot up" to Alaska for a few days several years back. I was so naive to believe that it would be maybe a 6 hour drive to get to the boundary. Not even close! Gosh Alaska is up there- how did we ever decide to wind up purchasing that territory?

Have grown up, been stationed in or trucked through all the 48 CONUS states. Refueled in Anchorage enroute to Korea, so I've seen the bear, too! Have trucked thru Ontario and Quebec. Uncle Sam let me see Alberta and Frobisher Bay on Baffin Island and we day-tripped into B.C. from Seattle. Had orders once to HI but they were cancelled; maybe one day...

Been to every one except Hawaii and Kansas. Not sure how I missed Kansas since I have been cross country several times. Guess I always went above or below it.

Nine months after my husband and I got married, we quit our jobs, bought an RV and went on a long road trip. Such a great experience. That was 7 years ago and I still think about that trip almost daily.

We now have 3 kids, (ages 5,4 and 2) but we dont let that stop us. Rented an RV last summer and took them on a big roadtrip from Seattle WA to Phoenix AZ.

So far for this summer and fall we have 3 major trips planned: Delaware, Tennessee and California.

I've been to all fifty states but I think it took at least ten years and a whole bunch of six or seven week vacations. I've also been to twenty two countries and I usually alternated, this year US, next year, foreign country, etc. I never get tired of traveling though. If I had lots more money I'd probably spend half my time traveling.

I suck. I've only been to

All of the original 13 (minus Rhode Island)
Vermont
Florida
Ohio
Tennessee
California

(I don't count drive-throughs or airport hops as visits)

I've been to almost as many countries in Europe as I have to states in the U.S. For a U.S. citizen that is quite sad, isn't it

I'm not sure about that; I'd bet there are a lot more Americans that have only been to the state next to their own. Or haven't even been out of their state. So you're OK there. And I'm sure that you've seen more overseas countries than even more Americans have... (I sometimes wonder if I'd ever gotten overseas if I'd followed my first dream of getting on my hometown fire department instead of joining the military... I'm sure glad my life's turned out the way it has; have loved the travel and experiences that I had!)

I'm waaayyyy behind!!! My parents didn't have the time/money to travel much when I was younger, so I didn't get started until about 5 years ago. Now, I've been to 30 states, including HI. I am trying to give my daughter a head start - she's 19 and has been to 26 states, Canada, Puerto Rico and Costa Rica. We're planning on adding a couple more this fall, and then a trip up to Maine, NH and Vermont next year. We're gonna get there!
