It was fun to go through the list and check off the places I have been to. Of this list I have visited 17 places so far, I have four more U.S. cities to visit (Atlanta although I have flown in there countless times still does not count since I have never been into the city) and those should be the easy ones to check off. I have my work cut out for me, but I am up for the challenge.

How about you? How many have you been to?

Good luck and have lots of fun. I expect to see postcards once in a while.

Oh, I've been to 49. Atlanta doesn't count or else it would be 50 : (

Guess I'll have to venture into the city the next time we are traveling there.

I am certainly not a world traveler, but I was surprised I could check off more cities than I expected! Good list - thanks for sharing!
