When it comes to travel, we tend to focus more on international destinations. However, over the past few years Kim and I have made it a point to try to see more of the USA.

When visiting different states it’s definitely impressive to think of just how much there is to see at home. In 2015 we only had the chance to visit one new state. (Back in March, Kim, Lucas and I had a fun time checking out Charleston, South Carolina.)

To date I’ve been to 32 states and would love to finish visiting all 50 at some point sooner than later. In recent years we spent a little time in places like Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Wyoming. Not exactly states that typically come up as popular travel destinations. Continue reading Least Visited States in America

Top Tourist Attraction In Each State

In recent years I’ve been trying to see more of the U.S. It’s impressive to think about just how many amazing sites and places the country has to see.

To date I’ve been to 32 states and just a handful of National Parks. In the future I’d like to complete visiting every state as well as see many of the parks.

Each state seems to have  something interesting or which makes it stand out. Some might have the famous national parks, monuments, stadiums or even a well-known food dish. Continue reading Top Tourist Attraction In Each State

A billionaire venture capitalist came up with an idea to divide California up into 6 states.

Timothy Draper says that he’s gotten enough signatures to add the proposal to get it on the ballot in 2 years. (As of yesterday the campaign says it has collected 808,000 signatures.)

After reading a little into this, I wondered what the motive to divide the state was.  Continue reading Will 1 U.S. State Get Chopped Into 6?

Here is a fun story which is quite appropriate for today since it is July 4.

First I have to say Happy Independence Day and thanks to all of you that have served our country!

A few years back I came across the story and blog of a guy dancing around the world, organizing  hilarious flash mobs. If you haven’t heard about this, you can check out the site, Where The Hell Is Matt here.

This brings me to a new July 4th- related story. What could someone possibly do that is over the top, crazy and extremely patriotic? Continue reading Man Waves American Flag In All 50 States + Video

Weirdest Things You Never Knew About Each State

As many of you may know, I definitely go out of my way to visit odd and weird sites. One of the strangest that I’ve ever visited would be The Shit Fountain in Chicago.  We also visited An Odd Site on Easter Island and the gigantic Rolling Rock in Fall River, Massachusetts among others.

I’m sure that there are other odd/ weird sites all over the country waiting for us to explore and find out about.

Sticking to the topic of weird, I came across an interesting list from The Huffington Post. The list isn’t made up of tourist sites although some of them can be visited.
