The States I've Visited

The topic for this week's twenty-six lists is the states and provinces (in Canada) we've visited.  I had great plans to put together a whole post on the different state I had traveled to at the end of the year since we had plans to knock a few more states off our list. 

However, with all the travel bans we haven't been able to go anywhere at all this year (other than a quick weekend trip to Maine) so this list is a perfect little precursor to a much longer post I hope to get to write next year.  

1. Arizona

2. Colorado

3.  Connecticut (I live here)

4. Florida

Taken off our balcony in Tampa Bay

5. Iowa

6. Maine

7. Maryland

8. Massachusetts

Taken on our trip to Salem, Mass.

9. Nebraska

10. Nevada

11. New Hampshire

Taken from our balcony in Loon (more about that trip here)

12. New Jersey

13. New York

14. North Carolina

20. Tennessee

21. Vermont

22. Virginia

23. West Virginia

24. Wyoming  

Taken on our trip to the Mountains/mid-west

25. Delaware- I debated about adding this one to my list but I have driven through the entire state even though I've never stayed in it so I decided it counts. 

I've only visited 2 provinces: Quebec and Ontario though I have been to both provinces more than once.

  1. Love seeing this list- makes me want to travel even more right now! So hard not to have the freedom to do so

    1. It is so hard not to travel! There are so many places I want to go.

  2. Oh, I can't wait to travel again!

    1. I have so many trips planned in my head! Not sure the wallet will agree with me once we can travel but it's keeping me somewhat sane to think about it.

  3. You've never been to Illinois! So you need to visit Chicago sometime and we can meet. :) I love travel and miss it. I love posts like these because they inspire me to find new places to travel to when we can branch out again.

    1. I have only been to Chicago on a layover at the airport.

  4. Such a fun post! I see that you've never been to Georgia... you need to come visit sometime! There's lots to do here! I've been to around the same number of states you have, but you seem to have been to most of the ones that I haven't been to. So funny!

    1. We have family in Atlanta that we've been trying to coordinate a trip with!

  5. You've visited a lot; love it!! I don't see my home-state WI and my current state MT on that list. ;) Hope you can make them there someday.

    1. We have family in MT and almost went there for a wedding... but I was pregnant at the time (I think?) and we ended up staying home.

  6. I can imagine all the great memories you made visiting all these states/provinces. I need to travel more!!

    1. I love the memories we make while traveling.

  7. Beautiful! I've gained a new appreciation for travelling this year, I miss it so.

  8. You've been to lots of states! As a child we drove everywhere when we went on vacation (one where we drove from MI to CA and back... hit a lot of states then) so I have some states from that.

    1. We used to drive almost everywhere too; often from Ct to either North Carolina or Fla. I tried to only "count" states that I've been in as a tourist but did make some exceptions like with Delaware.

  9. Joanne, this was super fun to read all the places you have visited. I love the photos you shared, too. Such beautiful images. I have visited 22 states and one province. Thanks for sharing and linking up!


    1. Thank you! I was rather impressed I could find photos of my own to use.

  10. Half the states - that's pretty good!! I hope you'll be able to resume traveling again soon. Thanks for sharing your list, and I'll be looking forward to the update whenever you are able to write it!

  11. I really enjoyed this post, Joanne. The photos are lovely! I'm feeling inspired to make a list of the States and Provinces I've visited too. Thank you for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Community!
