My American Journey

I love traveling and road-tripping and visiting new places and going to new events! So for a long time now it's been one of my goals to visit every state in the US and experience something special or unique about that place. So I've compiled a list of the things I want to do in every state in the USA! When I complete something, I'll cross it off and link a post about my adventure beside it.

THIS LIST IS NOT FINISHED!! If you live in a different state than me and there is something I absolutely have to do in your state, please leave a comment and give me more ideas!!! I'd love to hear about them! And if you want to know what to do in Utah... well... I'd have to ask someone else first and then give you an answer! (I'm not saying there isn't anything to do here, I'm just saying I haven't done anything, if you haven't noticed, I haven't crossed off Utah on my list and I've been living here for over twenty years, but I do have a list of over 100 things to do in Cache Valley HERE)
