Home State Sights To See...List, The 3rd Empty Home State Sights To See...List, The 3rd

Post by knightfan26917 on Thu Apr 08, 2010 11:06 pm

About a year ago, I posed these queries:
What do YOU consider to be "should see" areas/places in your home state?
What would you tell travelers to check out, if they have the time, as they drive through your state?
What "obscure" and "out of the way" places in your home state come to mind?

August 2009...I posted the answers received.
January 2010...I posted a second version of the list, after receiving additional suggestions.

NOW ... I've received MORE replies. Thus, below is the NEWEST compilation of answers. As before, this is not a "complete" list and may not be 100% accurate; however, it is an excellent start to planning a vacation...especially since "Road Trip Season" is here ... ENJOY!
