The Top Five States

My life has taken me to more places than the average person—at least in terms of residences if not simply visits. That being said, I have been in less than half of the 50 States in my home country. Here (with a few cheats) are my five favorite States along with the five I would most like to visit that I haven’t yet.

The States I’ve been to that impressed me the most: 

5. California

I have not seen much of this state, but the part I did was nice. Still want to see San Francisco, the Redwoods, and the north someday.

4. Maryland/Washington D.C.

I love our nation’s capital, and from what I hear my birth state is quite impressive. Someday I need to see Baltimore and the Chesapeake Bay area.

3. Wyoming

I have only seen a small portion of this state but need to get back to see more as some of the top places on my “to see” list are there.

2. Texas

This may be the most amazing state in the Union, but some of the vastness is less than impressive and drags the better parts down to the second slot on this list.

1. Colorado

The challenge with Colorado is coming up with something not to like.

The States I haven’t been to that I most want to see: 

5. Hawaii

I don’t think I will like it as much as most do, but it looks like a must see.

4. Maine

Or anywhere in New England.

3. Arizona

I would not like to live there, but I do love the magic of the Southwest. Arizona has places that I really hope to see before I die.

2. Montana

If Colorado and Wyoming are great, I am going with the idea that the Rockies just get better the further north you go.

1. Washington/Oregon

Growing up in southwestern South America, I always heard that it was similar to the Pacific Northwest. That I have to see for myself.

  1. You forgot the most beautiful of all 50 states! Alaska! definitely my favorite that I have been to!

  2. You're right, Jeff. I totally forgot Alaska! Consider it my new #1 "want to see" as that is where it would've been.
