    The places I have not been to that I would like to go to are:

    San Francisco
    Hawaii
    Puerto Rico
    US Virgin Islands

    I really should go visit Niagara Falls before I move down south.

    Niagara Falls sounds nice! Maybe I will have to do that in the next couple of weeks....

    Not technically my 'country' but John O'Groats, and the more remote Scottish islands.

    Nearer home, I've never been to the New Forest, I've heard it's nice.

    I've visited 28 states, lived in a few of those, and "driven through" quite a few others. Eventually, I'd like to have spent some time in all 50...

    Ive been to all but 12 states...so I think I'd like to visit them (Hawaii, Alaska, and Idaho-Nevada-Colorado-Dakotas-Iowa and points in between. I also want to visit a few more cities...including Tampa, San Diego, Cincinatti, Denver, and Milwaukee. Those are the holes in my US geography so far.

    The far north, maybe Baffin Island, Newfoundland and Labrador. I haven't been to Lake of the Woods since I was a child and I'd like to go back there and do a canoe trip.

    I've never travelled further north than the lake district so I'd like to venture into Scotland and explore the Highlands sometime.
    I'm spending a few days in Suffolk soon,a county I've never visited before.I'm told it's an attractive part of the country.

    I've basically been to every area of my country (England) though not necessarily all major/specific cities.

    The last time a Quaker was in the White House, things didnt turn out too well. Besides, the only advice my grandfather ever gave: "Keep the hell out of politics!" :cool:

    BTW, I've been around most of your country as well. Nice country ya got there. :wink:

    I wuz gonna say ...
    I've seen the southern regions a fair amount, but I do want to spend some time in the Far North ... either in High Summer, or in winter when the sun don't shine at all.

    So beautiful there. Suggests that G-d was a member of the Group of, oh, Eight.:cool:

    I've been to all 10 provinces, but I haven't yet seen any of the territories. I'd like to see Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, the Yukon.

    Last year in November I satisfied my need to see Los Angeles. I drove from my vacation in Las Vegas and spent about 4 hours there seeing Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Malibu.
