I already listed most of the places I've been outside of the US, so...

Southern California--I was born in Orange County and was sooooo tan as a young kid :)
Northern California--around the Santa Rosa area, San Francisco, Oakland, half the cities/towns with-in a 40 mile radius of Sacramento, South Lake Tahoe :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: oh, the memories... even memories in my parked car and between some large rocks on the shore (sort-of mostly private)...
I love Cali :D

Nevada--around the Reno area... I've only driven through Las Vegas :( a guy I was dating who wanted to marry me, canceled our trip to Vegas when I didn't agree to a committed long-term relationship with him... I didn't love him but I liked him a lot and wanted to go to Vegas with him... I was totally looking forward to it... he told me the dates we'd be there and told me he booked it and everything :( ...he has unfriended and friend-ed me on facebook 3 or 4 times each since... so ridiculous... I finally stopped the cycle and didn't accept his friend request about a year ago...

Washington--Seattle

Oregon--West and East sides
(including most of the cities/towns in the Boise, ID / Ontario, OR / McCall, ID circle)
Idaho--West and East sides

Utah--most of the cities/towns with-in a 40 mile radius of Salt Lake City, Cedar City, St George (+skiing, mountain biking, camping, hiking, repelling, etc. across the state)
Arizona/Utah--Lake Powell
Arizona--Grand Canyon

Wyoming--Yellowstone vicinity
South Dakota
Illinois

Michigan--most of the cities with-in a 40 mile radius of Detroit, Oscoda, Drummond Island (snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, etc.), U.P. Lake Superior coast
Ohio--Toledo, Sandusky, Columbus

Pennsylvania/Connecticut/Rhode Island/Vermont/New Hampshire/Maine--yes to all, though not since I lived in Massachusetts as a kid.
Massachusetts--especially the Boston area
New York--NYC and upstate
Washington DC area

Georgia--Atlanta, Macon
Florida--Lake City :twisted: :twisted:, Gainesville, Orlando

This is not counting the states I have driven through.

I think I will finally go to Alaska and the Caribbean next year.
My girlfriend especially wants to go to Japan... would be nice to go with her there, but it would be expensive.
I want to go to Hawaii and Australia.
Also, Victoria/Vancouver, Prince Edward Island, and Nova Scotia, Canada.

I don't get around nearly as much as you people. I'm also somewhat behind in terms of years though, so I've got some time to catch up ;)


(I'm listing each state individually instead of in regions so it looks more impressive ;) )

Massachusetts
Connecticut
Maine
Rhode Island
Vermont
New Hampshire
Delaware (I have zero memories of Delaware except for the "you are now leaving Delaware" sign despite having been through a dozen times. I think I stopped to eat there once but I can't be sure)
Maryland
Virginia
West Virginia (eww)
New Jersey (double eww)
Louisiana (triple eww)
Mississippi
Indiana
Ohio
Iowa
Missouri
Minnesota
Arkansas
Tennessee
Pennsylvania
Kentucky
Georgia
Florida
North Carolina
South Carolina
Wisconsin
Illinois
Michigan
Alabama
Washington D.C.
New York

And Toronto, Canada, as a bonus.


Next on my list is a west coast trip. Hopefully I can make that happen next summer, with a little luck and some careful planning. That would also mean driving through most of the midwest that I haven't gotten to yet, and/or part of the southwest. Probably the midwest route, because I'm not entirely jazzed with the idea of going through the southwest in the summer. Fingers crossed!

Sounds like you fail on the criteria there
"I mean, you should have been in the place for more than 6 hours and spent that time ~in~ the place, not on a ship in it's harbor or an airport/airbase (for all you servicemen & women)."

If we include travelling through I can add the following US states:
CT, NH, VT, DE, MD, WV, NC, MN

and the following countries
Luxembourg
Slovakia,

Allowing airport stops would also add the following countries
Australia, India, Singapore, Tahiti,
