I also included drive through states, for the record. The cheapest of the ones I included will have to be West Virginia and Minnesota. I drove through the narrowest piece of WV on my way south, so I didn't even drive through it so much as I leaped over its little pan handle. And Minnesota I only drove into to say that i'd been there (I was staying in a city in Wisconsin which was right on the border).

It's okay, nobody is going to blame you for not stopping in West Virginia.

Okay, so lets add some content to this thread. What was your favorite state to visit? Favorite food? Least favorite? What are some stories about the places you visited?

My personal favorite was New Orleans (also the best food). I loved how common street performers are there. I visited pre Katrina so it might be a different place now but it was so vibrant there. I pretty much spent my entire visit in the French Quarter and the culture is so on the surface (especially compared to California), It was pretty rad.

Hawaii was okay. I visited pretty quickly after my Dad passed away and I was depressed as hell. Hawaii kind of sucks when you're depressed because most of the cool stuff there takes effort to do but I kind of just wanted to lay around the hotel and watch TV.

If we're counting drive-through states I'm counting all 3 miles I spent in New Jersey. 3 long, torturous miles.

I find tat there's generally good food everywhere, you just have to look for it. But I grew up in east central Illinois so I'm going to have to say Monicals' Pizza. They're a chain and their thin crust is great, but the salad dressing is amazing. There's no beating it.

Worst State: Georgia, fuck Georgia

Best City: Burlington-Portland, because me and hipsters see eye to eye on exactly one thing

Biggest Surprise: Dallas was not a giant pile of shit

Additional Comments: I only drove through about 5 miles of Delaware, and I've only been in LAX

Reposting mine to add additional comments.

Home State: Pennsylvania. I've spent almost all my time in the south-eastern corner. I (used to) go west a lot to visit people at college, but the furthest trips only went to State college which is right in the center. This is a wide state. I've only been to Pittsburgh once, and I was driving through. I stopped to take a piss. I was shocked at what a cool city it was, I had spent most of my life assuming it was a craphole.

Favorite State: Arizona. Maybe not "favorite" state, but it was probably my favorite trip. I loved how different it was from everything I was used to. The dry heat reminded me a bit of Greece, but different still as Greece is no desert. I fell in love with cactuses and desert plant life, I loved the gardens. The grand canyon was amazing and the drive there offered a lot of cool scenery that I was yet completely unfamiliar with. I stayed in Phoenix which felt like a completely artificial city but was still cool for a trip. My enjoyment may also have been influenced that I didn't pay for the tickets or the hotel, and the hotel I got to stay in was really damned fancy. This gave me cash to spend on fancy meals (which I could have been reimbursed for but felt guilty), so it'll also have to win best food on that alone. I also tasted a delicious beer (8th street ale?) which I'd love it if I could get it here.

Honorable mentions: The Carolinas. Took two trips to stay and party in Clemson (SC), which were surprisingly fun. Also spent a week in the Outer Banks (NC) which was beautiful and and a great time.

No comment: New Jersey and Delaware. So comfortable with these two states that they almost fit into "home state" category. Had some great times in both, but nothing much to say.

Worst state: Indiana. Fucking Indiana, man. It was just a drive-through state, but I couldn't wait to get the hell out of it. All the east coast states are pretty densely populated in comparison, even the southern ones when I thought I was "in the middle of nowhere." I had no idea what that meant until I drove through Indiana. And Gary looked like the worst place in the world. I'm sure the state has many redeeming qualities, but I drove through none of them.

Worst drivers: Virginia.

Also, DC, since that wasn't listed but is a neat city.

I'm from Florida, now live in Colorado.

Worst state: Kansas. No contest. Never go there.

Favorite: Louisiana or Colorado.

I couldn't pick best food - I'm a pretty big foodie and have stuff I love everywhere. Hawaii might be the worst, though. It's very hard to break through the touristy facade. There's a couple gems, but, for the most part, it's bland touristy stuff everywhere.

Hawaii is the worst in many ways and the best in many ways. It's been tourist-ified to hell which can be really obnoxious. But when you manage to escape that, it's hard to deny how beautiful the location and geography are. Hiking on Kauai is totally amazing, but god is all the touristy shit annoying. I swear if anyone ever says mahalo to me again, I will punch them.

You're not lying. Georgia makes Mississippi look pleasant, sometimes. I've written off ever visiting Florida again, so I won't be travelling in Georgia again for the rest of my life. I'd rather spend 3 more miles in New Jersey.

Favorite Province: British Columbia (home province). Easily the most beautiful province (if you enjoy mountains and forests).

Worst Province: Manitoba. It was just boring to me, even though I was visiting friends there. Not much to see.

Favorite City: Halifax. Most fun I've had recently; it has a great night life full of drinking and singing maritime tunes.

Worst City: Honestly, a toss-up between Edmonton and Calgary. Both cities have wealth and good people, but not much to do.



Next May I am hoping to do this trip to go to MDF:


Favorite State: California. In particular, I really became fond of San Diego.

Worst State: Montana. It just reminds me of Alberta. Also Idaho. There's a shit ton of religious bigots there.

Favorite City: San Diego. Good climate; good people; great beaches.

Worst City: Spokane. It's passable.

Favorite States: Utah, New Hampshire, Vermont

I've included all that states I've actually been to, including drivethrough states: South Carolina, West Virginia, Alabama, Montana; mostly because I have no intention on ever returning to any of these states with exception of Montana, mostly because of Glacier.

I won't bother doing this because I've only been to Washington, Oregon, and California.

Jersey was Princeton's admit weekend in 2005. PA and Delaware were drive-throughs. A number of states there I've driven through rather than actually spent time. Done quite a lot of cross-country driving. The drive-throughs are: PA, Delaware, Ohio, Indiana, TN, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arizona, Oregon.

I've been to Texas, Florida, and pretty much all the states that touch Ontario or Quebec. The map of that isn't too interesting.
