    37! When I was a teen, my mom and my aunt used to take my cousins and sisters and I across country in a motorhome and we'd take a different route every time. We travelled between California and Michigan which explains my lack of New England states. We'd also drive to Florida to visit the grandparents.

    I had to sing Fifty Nifty United States to remember them all. :lmao:

    I have visited every state in the country except:

    Hawaii
    Illinois
    Kentucky
    Michigian
    Montana
    New Mexico

    Someday I hope to visit all of them. And to add to what a previous poster said, I too had to run through the song "50 Nify United States" to make sure I didn't miss one.

    I've been to 15 states. I didn't count DC since I live here and technically we are not a state.

    States you drive through count! (Unless you had your eyes closed.;)

    Personally, I don't count states where I've only been in the airport, but I definately count states I've driven through.

    I think I'm at 27, but I need to recount.
