22 Down, 28 to Go

I was chatting with a friend recently about how many of the 50 states we'd been to. He's been to 47! Forty freaking seven! The three he hasn't visited are Michigan, Alaska and Hawaii! WHOA!

Of course, this got me thinking, how many have I been to? The answer is 23. I've pulled together this handy dandy map for you. The ones in grey I have been to:

I always feel like I've been to alot of places in America, but I've actually been to less than half! Yikes! This surprised me big time. 

My favorite American sights include:

The entirety of New York City:

Strolling the Brooklyn Bridge when I lived there Summer 2007

San Francisco:

Visiting besties and strolling the Golden Gate Bridge in Summer 2010.

(No, I don't have a bridge fetish, that just kind of happened)

Lake Tahoe:

Skiing in January 2010. The lake was absurdly breathtaking. What wasn't breathtaking was that I sucked so hard on the slopes, I had to wear a helmet. NERD CITY.

I always daydream about visiting faraway, exotic, foreign lands. Really, there's plenty right here in the good ole U.S. of A. for me to check out! 28 whole states worth!

How many states have you been to?! 

How about this fun thing....if you're the commenter with the most states visited, I'll give you a little blog plug and direct all my followers to go check out your well-traveled little self on your site! Yay!


  1. You lived in NY?! So jealous. I’ve been to 27 states, but some of those were just driving through. I definitely want to see all 50! I’ve crossed off Alaska and Hawaii, so that makes it a little easier.

  2. 23! But if we count airport layovers, 27...pretty sure that's cheating though. And since we drove to Alaska, I've been through a ridiculous number of Canadian provinces.

  3. Lake Tahoe sounds like such a blast! I am dying to go on a ski trip some day!!!

  4. I've been to 29...though a few of those I've just driven through and didn't really stop except for gas and whatnot. Plus the US Virgin Islands. I've always wanted to go to Lake Tahoe! It looks beautiful!

  5. I'm slightly upset there isn't a picture here from Miami with a certain Cuban...


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
