Home State Sights To See...The List #2

6 posts in this topic

Last year, I posed these queries:

What do YOU consider to be "should see" areas/places in your home state?

What would you tell travelers to check out, if they have the time, as they drive through your state?

What "obscure" and "out of the way" places in your home state come to mind?

In August, I posted the answers received. Since then, I've received additional suggestions. Below is the newest compilation of answers ... which may prove that you find another part of yourself in every state. This is not a "complete" list and may not be 100% accurate; however, it is an excellent start to planning a vacation or road trip...ENJOY!

Not sure if you want to, but you could put Yellowstone in Idaho as well as Wyoming and Montana. It's in all 3 states, and thus became the first national park. :)
