    Question What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    I have traveled to several states including Alaska, Hawaii, New York, California, and many others. I've toured some amazing historical places from the Oregon Trail to Mount Rushmore. But, I've never been to Washington, D.C., and it is the one place I'd most like to visit. In addition to the White House, I most want to check out the Smithsonian (all of it), the Lincoln Memorial, the Arlington National Cemetery, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. This fall I'm going on a group trip to Paris, France, so heading to D.C. isn't in the cards just yet, but it will remain at the top of my bucket list. What is on your bucket list of places to travel and things to experience in the United States?

    Re: What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    When I travel I like to stay for at least three months to really get a handle on a region and community. I'd love to go to New England from late spring through the winter holidays. Spend about three months in Austin then head up north for the summer and autumn to spend it in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming. I've seen the southeast and would consider spending more time in Savannah & Charleston. The Pacific Northwest is also on my list but I'm not sure what time of year would be best.

    Re: What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    I have been to many of the states, but my kids have not. My parents took many road trips when I was a kid. One place I would like to visit because I had not been there is Niagara Falls, surprisingly that is one place that my parents had not taken me. The falls look beautiful in the pictures and I would love to see them in person. I am sure the kids would too!

    For my kids it would be Disney, Yellowstone and Dinosaur National Park. I am the only one in my household that has visited most of the states, so as a grownup with her own family there are many places I would like to take the family.

    Must See Attractions In United States

    I would like to go visit the rest of the states I have not been to. Alaska, Hawaii, Florida, Maine, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York. I think that's all. I would also love to take my children to all the main American attractions, like Niagra falls and yellowstone.

    Alaska is a state I have never been to before. I have an Aunt who lives there so I am not really sure why I haven't gone yet, but I have not been. One day we will get up there to visit tho as I am sure we would have a place to stay!

    She has sent me pictures that are beautiful and when we watch the TV shows about it, it looks beautiful as long as we stay out of the freezing part of Alaska. Parts of the state stay quite cold from what I understand.

    Maine is beautiful too, I am sure you will like it up there. If you like seafood, you will love it! The lobster is fresh off the boats and cooked right away. Lobster doesn't get any fresher then in Maine.

    Oh, I like your list! We used to visit Disney World every year on family vacations. Since I've gotten older, I've only been twice but still loved it. It is a truly magical place and I'm sure your kids would love it. Disney is so expensive though! Paying for drinks alone made us paupers. I stumbled upon it while searching for Disney gift card deals and wish I had known about it when we planned our last Disney trip.

    Re: What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    Definitely Hawaii! I'm also really keen to go to New Orleans. And I've done New York, but I stayed with a friend in Brooklyn, so it's definitely on the list to go back and stay in a swanky Manhattan hotel, at least for a night.

    And it's not a place, necessarily, but at some point, I really want to drive all the way across! It's a big trip, so it's not happening any time soon!

    On my bucket list number one would have to be Hawaii, it seems like would be so beautiful. I guess the second one would be L.A., I've always wanted to go there and party till I can't move.

    Re: What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    I have always wanted to travel (what's left of) the classic route 66. All of my road trips so far have been brutal north to south races to escape the snow so going from east to west and planing some stops would be great. My dream vacation includes a vintage sports car!

    I would love to take the kids to Disney but yes, it is quite expensive. That is the biggest thing keeping us from going at the moment. I will get the kids there tho, it is a place that I think all kids should visit at least once! I am going to have to start a separate vacation fund to save money to get there soon. I haven't been there in almost 25 years so I can only imagine how expensive things are inside the parks. I know the trip itself can be expensive so I will have to save up for any extras.

    It is a goal of mine tho to go on the trip with the kids before they are both 18

    Disney just raised their prices now admission is $87 for kids and $92 for adults. I think you still get a lot for the money but if you buy onsite meals and souvenirs it gets really expensive.

    What is on my U.S. bucket list is to see Niagara Falls and to go to Hawaii. Going to Disney World would also be nice.

    Re: What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    For me, the first place will be NYC. After that, it will be a variety of places ranging from the beautiful beaches in Hawaii, Yosemite and Hollywood in California, Grand Canyon in Arizona, Hoover Dam in Nevada. I also want to go Las Vegas and see the glittering lights of luxury and indulgence.

    What Are Things To Do In USA

    The Grand Canyon, definitely. I think it will be a life-changing experience. I have only seen photos, and whenever I see it I already feel so humbled. I can only imagine seeing it in person. I also want to travel in the Southern states. I am fascinated by Southern food, and the history. I would also like to visit Yellowstone Park, Carmel in North Carolina, and do the Appalachian Trail. I am in no way an outdoorsy kind of person, but I will gear up for a long hike on the A.T!

    Re: What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    So far I have been to 23 out of 50 states. Part of my US bucket list is to visit the rest of the 50 states.

    Topping my list is Universal Studios Orlando & Disney World. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and want to visit the Harry Potter theme park. I want to go to Disney World because I never had the opportunity to go as a child. I think it is a magical place that everyone should see.

    After that I want to visit Alaska. I love nature and the wilderness. The photos I've seen are breath taking and the books I've read describe amazing scenery and fabulous things to do. The Inside passage is a must do for me. While I'm there I want to go hiking, dog sledding and visit some of the historic towns. I too am fascinated by history.

    Re: What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    Before I die, I would like to visit Galway, Mayo, and Cork in Ireland with my father and mother. My father would be so honored to go there. I think it's on his bucket list too. I really hope I can find a way to make his wish come true. After that, my second goal is to visit Pamplona, Spain. I would also like to visit Disney World since if you can believe it, I have never been! I was supposed to visit as a child, but it never occurred. I would love to see what it is like.

    Re: What is on your U.S. bucket list?

    New York City is at the top of my list - specifically, I'd love to go there around Christmas, and I'd also like to see a show on Broadway. I also want to go to San Francisco, Seattle, New Orleans and Key West. I'd quite like to see the Grand Canyon as well, and walk on the Sky Walk there.
