    I'm always baffled why people would actually want to vacation in Philly. God, I hate that city.

    And why isn't NYC on there?

  2. I've been to Yosemite, Yellowstone, Honolulu and Grand Canyon. Nice spots!

  3. Gosh. I've been to the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Orlando, Yellowstone, San Diego, DC, and Myrtle Beach. Makes me feel more well-traveled than I really am. Most of that adventuring took place when I was a lot younger.

    I would like to return to the Grand Canyon with my husband. He has never seen it.

  4. I've been to a lot of them, but when I was too young to remember being there.

  5. YAY!!!! #12!!!!! :)

    Have a great TT!

  6. I have only been to Chicago and DC, each at least three times, but would love to see Philadelphia and more of our National Parks. The Black Hills of South Dakota, Gettysburg, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula were also memorable trips.

  7. It's kind of embarrassing since I live near Las Vegas, but I have never been to the Grand Canyon I've been to Orlando, San Antonio, Yellowstone, and a few others, but I love to travel and I hope to see everything on your list and more!

  8. I've been to a number of these places and I used to live in Chicago (well, the burbs). I miss the music festivals in Grant Park!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
