Re: How many U.S. States have you visited?

11 for me, but really only 3 for an extended time. Florida most of all, but I've spent a fair amount of time in New Jersey (my aunt lived - and was in a nursing home - there for many years, and we'd fly down 2-3 weekends a year, because she had no one else to look out for her; anyone remember People's Express Airlines?). Jersey is a hellhole. Who the hell designed the roads there, Rube Goldberg?
Have been to NYC a few times, most recently in '03. We also spent time a short time in NC, VA, and DC during March Break or Easter, '83. It was cold and I was sick.
The rest are just drive-throughs along the I-75: MI, OH, KY, TN, GA. I haven't been to the States since '06, but I would like to visit our old Siesta Key stomping grounds again. Our old stalwart motel has been torn down and replaced with a Hyatt, but Crescent Beach is still there.

I've technically passed through more since I've drive across the country with a friend, but I don't really count those the ones we didn't stop at and spend a decent amount of time in, or the states that I just had a layover in at an airport despite the rules in the original post.

Re: How many U.S. States have you visited?

This thread got me thinking. I have been to 23 states. The east coast states only once each, but I have visited every western state many times. I live in California. By my guess I have been to Utah 12 times and Arizona more than that, possibly 16 times. I've been to Oregon 8 times, Colorado 5 times, Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming 3 times, New Mexico 2 times. And since you have to drive through it to get to all these places, I've probably been to Nevada most of all.

Buy Douwe's Machine Learning Book

I was off by 3 on my original guess. I'm pretty sure I've been to Virginia but for the life of me can't remember 100%.

I really need to get up to PA, NY and DC. The rest I'm not too interested in. Maybe the Nevada for the Grand Canyon.

Re: How many U.S. States have you visited?

I'm only listing states I've been in that I recall. When I was an infant my family moved/traveled a bit, but I have no memory of it.

This includes some states that I've only driven through, but these are all the states I've physically been in at one point. Looks like I got the east covered but I really need to do some more exploring out west.

I usually don't when I do these lists, but in looking at mine, the only "airport" states on mine are TN and MO, and both are states where I landed at the airport then drove to another state (MS and KS, respectively). I guess NC and OH are both iffy on mine, since I've driven through both multiple times but never actually done anything there. All the rest are states where I've overnighted and/or spent time actually doing things in.

Re: How many U.S. States have you visited?

All but Alaska.

But to be fair, I've only "driven through" about half of them. Which I guess allowed me to see more of the state than spending time in just one city of that state.
