I came across a pretty cool article listing the 20 places every American should see.  I’ve seen quite a few, but would love to see the rest.  How do you fare?  I was very fortunate that my first job out of college included traveling the country – to be specific, I drove the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile – as a hotdogger.  (Read about life in the Wienermobile here.)  I traveled to 30? 32? states over the course of the year-long job and was able to visit big cities to rural towns.  America is truly beautiful and I always encourage people to keep it domestic for their vacations.

Yellowstone National Park

I’ve been to all of the bolded spots.  I still can’t believe I haven’t been to SoBe, but I’m going next month! And while I’ve been to Atlanta a few times, I’ve never done the civil rights tour. *womp*  Finally, as a Yankees fan, I have NO IDEA why Fenway Park is on this list 😛
