Okay, okay – I admit it. I’m a sucker for checking things off of lists!
Today’s list comes from TravelChannel.com and is the “50 Landmarks for the 50 states“. It’s a 50 state slideshow (in the order each state got statehood, with their pick for the “best” landmark from each state (though I’m not sure how Louisiana got to be #1?!?!) 🙂
- Mystic Seaport, CT
- Plymouth Rock, MA
- Wright Brothers Memorial, NC
- Willis Tower, IL
- Gateway Arch, MO
- Golden Gate Bridge, CA
- Las Vegas Strip, NV
- Mt. Rushmore, SD
- Old Faithful, WY (those last 2 on the same trip last summer!)
- Salt Lake Temple, UT
That’s an even 10 – though I’ve been pretty close to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and I’ve already got a trip planned to go to the Space Needle in 2016. I haven’t been to my own state’s “top” landmark (which is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum). I blame the fact that it was built after I already left Cleveland.

So what do you say? I’m sure someone out there can top 10 – let me know in the comments
