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 (pictured below out on the overhang ledge)
- Gateway Arch, MO
- Golden Gate Bridge, CA
- Las Vegas Strip, NV
- Mt. Rushmore, SD
- Old Faithful, WY (those last 2 on the same trip in 2015!)
- Salt Lake Temple, UT
- Statue of Liberty, NY – A 10 year old’s top 10 things to do in New York City
- Space Needle, WA (pictured above)
That’s 12 – though I’ve been pretty close to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the Kentucky Derby is on my bucket list. 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 12 – let me know in the comments
