Along the same lines as my other poll (KLP2010‘s comment made me think of it) ….. How many states within the US and/or US territories have you been to? (sorry international bees – this one doesn’t apply to you so much)
For the purposes of the poll, I count states that you’ve driven through (because you see a good portion of the state) but not states where you’ve only made a flight connection at the airport.
I’ve currently been to 35 of the 50 US States (plus Washington DC). I’ve not been to the Virgin Islands or Guam.
ETA: Of the 35 states I’ve been to, I’ve lived in 5 of them (although one was just for a summer internship so not very long).

I’ve only been to 17 out of 50 states and DC…. that’s pretty pathetic. Mostly stuck to the East Coast for all of my life!

Just one. We used to go to Buffalo New York for chicken wings and cheap beer. At that time, I lived on the Niagara Falls border. Ahhhhh, to be young again, lol

I’ve been to 19 states (plus DC) that I remember. I’ve been told I went to Nebraska & Maryland when I was younger, but if I don’t remember it at all I don’t really count it!
I’ve only lived in 2 states though.

Haha, I would have to look at a map. States I have actually gone to to visit are Connecticut, New York, Florida, and Louisiana….but I drove to all of them, so passed a few different states, haha. I suck at geography.

Ive been to 48. Missing out on Alaska and N. Dakota. My parents were big on cross country trips growing up (we went 3 times). Packed the 7 kids in the motorhome (plus a cousin or two on some trips) and drove from NJ to Cali and back. At the time I didnt really appreciate it. More rocks and trees and hills… borrrring! But looking back some of my favorite childhood memories were on these trips… plus it forced me and my siblings to be close and play with one another for weeks on end. 🙂 Have also been to DC.

@Linz1231: I totally just googled “Map of the United States” so I could look at it an go “yep” “yep” “yep” “nope” . . .

@Goldilocks1107: I just did the same thing! 22 states + DC. Except I forgot to click on DC on the poll. Whoops.
Lived in 2.
Living in NYC makes it easy to travel to all those tiny east coast states… New Husband, VT, CT, MA, NJ, RI, DE, etc.

I’ve been to 28 states and DC. My family went on a cross-country road trip the summer before 7th grade, so that added quite a few states to my list 🙂
