Travel Thursday #2: The 50 US States

If you missed last week’s first edition of Travel Thursday, make sure to visit the intro page to the weekly blog post. Thursdays are the day to recap trips, discuss future vacations or inspiration for travel. Basically, it is a day to blog about any and all things travel related. Lets get right to it shall we?

Travel Thursday

When I started to complete my last courses in college and finally see an end in sight, I thought about what I wanted to do after college. Of course my mind went to traveling deciding I would take a few weeks and do a road trip across the United States. Fortunately for my future career (but unfortunately for the wanderlust in me) I got my job a few weeks before I graduated college. I started working with them as I finished my degree and the dream of driving across as many states possible flew out the window. Since I have graduated college, I have visited 3 new states when I went to NOLA, New York City and Seattle. Although I will be traveling to Miami in September, I had already visited the state previously so I don’t get to cross a new state off my list.

Alabama
Alaska
Arizona
Arkansas
California
Colorado
Connecticut
Delaware
Florida
Georgia
Hawaii
Idaho
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
 Maine
Maryland
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Montana
Nebraska
Nevada
New Hampshire
New Jersey
New Mexico
New York
North Carolina
North Dakota
Ohio
Oklahoma
Oregon
Pennsylvania
Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota
Tennessee
Texas
Utah
Vermont
Virginia
Washington
West Virginia
Wisconsin
Wyoming

Putting this list together made me realize I have some work to get on. There are so many main cities, historic areas and popular iconic sites to see in the United States. Although many people think travel means an international trip, there are so many amazing, historic spots right in our own country. Heck, it is a much cheaper option to tie you over until your next international trip. Luckily, when you look at a map of the US, making a road trip of the Southern states or up the East Coast seems like a great way to hit many states in one. Like I mentioned in my Travel List, Massachusetts, Illinois, Hawaii and Tennessee are at the top of my list. Maybe it is time to consider a road trip up the East Coast next summer 😉
