I am sure that most Americans who are members of Virtual Tourist like to travel to foreign countries (and I am guilty of this myself) to see new and exotic lands and cultures. However, in doing so, they run the risk of missing many of the things there are to see in this country. The United States of America is so vast and varied that one could spend a lifetime traveling here and not see it all. I have been fortunate in having visited 47 states, and one of my travel-related goals is to see the other three (Arkansas, Hawaii, and Oregon).

Since joining Virtual Tourist in 2001, I have started visiting states that I have not been to in many years specifically to see some of the sights and attractions, and to take photographs for new Virtual Tourist pages. I will slowly be adding pages about new states, and enhancing already-built pages as my American travels increase.

Had I provided multiple tips for each state I visited in the United States of America, this page would have too many tips and would take too much time to read. This would take away from the reader's enjoyment of the page. Therefore, I have provided one tip for each state I have visited in the United States of America. The tip I chose represents the essence of the state the way I see it. The tip could be about a major city, a tourist attraction, a natural feature, or a cultural aspect of the state. For more information and pictures, please visit my pages about each individual American state I visited.

    I was just thinking while viewing your page how much your Country is immortalised in song = Main is on my list to visit but could not think of a song for her!

    Learned a great deal about the states via the flags. Some interesting concepts symbolized in flags.

    Just got home from Greece yesterday. Had a wonderful time there but it's still nice to be back home again. Three weeks was a long time to be away for me. Will finish United States later.
