Recently, CNN ran a story about the 8 places every American should see…
Their recommendations were the Sears Tower, Gettysburg, Yellowstone National Park, New York Harbor, Monticello, Graceland, Pearl Harbor, and the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. I have only been to one place on this list: the New York Harbor. What about you? Do you even agree with this list? What places would be on your list?
Compare that with a list of the 15 Places Every Kid Should See by Budget Travel…I have been to four of the fifteen landmarks.
As for me, I think it would also be nice to visit each of the 50 states. The list below illustrates which states I have visited…
* California (had a layover here, but I won’t count that)
* Illinois (had a layover here, but I don’t count that)
* New Hampshire
* New Jersey
* New Mexico
* New York
* North Carolina
* North Dakota
* Rhode Island
* South Carolina
* South Dakota
* West Virginia
As you can see, I still have quite a few states to visit…I have been to a little less than half of them. In addition to visiting each state, here are some specific sites I would like to see: Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore, Niagara Falls, Redwood National Forest in California, the lights in Marfa, the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco, and more!
