I'm finally going

To the Grand Canyon.  LOL.  I've lived in AZ my entire life, but have never been, so finally after almost 25 years, H and I are doing a quick trip to the Grand Canyon on Saturday. 

It made me think that a lot of people don't go to the major tourist draws in their home state - my friend's mom has lived in Jersey her whole life, about an hour outside Manhatten and has never seen the Statue of Liberty. 

So, is there any big tourist area in your state that you've never seen??

    lol that's crazy! I know a lot of people like that up in the NY/NJ area that have never been to the major sights.

    I don't think I have a place that I've never been to, but I am one of those weird CFL people that don't do the Disney thing. Like hardly at all. I'd much prefer Universal or Busch Gardens or even Sea World.

    That's awesome! Please take a gazillion pics for us :)

    I've never been to the top of the Empire State Building.  I think that's really the only thing I haven't done.  I've stood next to it on the street but never been inside or up to the top.

    I hate going to the Strip.
    I'm not good at feelings.

    There are not many touristy things to see in WI. Whatever there is, I have been there. There is one place that we are thinking of going this summer and its 6 hours a way at the very top of WI and we'd be camping so it has to be summer. Otherwise Ive gone the touristy places in the states around me.

    I've seen a majority of the touristy things in my state, but that's not saying much, haha.

    Have fun at the grand canyon, hike it if you can!  I'm planning to hike the canyon in April perhaps you might want to come back out and hike with Danish Man and I.  Living in So Cal I rarely want to go to Disneyland even though everyone i know has annual passes or Hollywood and the Sunset Strip.  Bleh!

    I live in Northern CA and I've done it all. Most of it was when I was a kid, but lately I've been taking trips to different parts of the state that are beautiful. Enjoy the Grand Canyon, it's so beautiful!

    The Grand Canyon is awesome- enjoy your trip!

    There really aren't any touristy things in Pittsburgh...I've been to most of the museums. I'm originally from Dayton, OH and there really aren't any touristy things there either. I think I need to get out of the midwest lol.

    H and I want to do the hike to Havasupai Falls eventually, but I'm not sure how far in advance those permits book up, since it's not technically part of the national park, but is on the indian reservation.  We need to do some major hiking training before then though...

    Danish Man has done that hike with his father.  Danish Man, his father and I have done the rim to rim hike it was INSANE, 19 miles we started at 6 am and finished at 7 pm.  But bragging rights rule.

    This! I've never been to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building and I've been an hour from NYC my whole life! I only go to the city 2, maybe 3 times a year anyway. BF and I were going to go Monday but it was too expensive, lol.

    There's plenty of little historic areas everywhere here, but as far as tourist attractions, there's nothing.

    Unless, maybe you count the Boll Weevil statue down in Enterprise. I've seen that.

    There's plenty of little historical landmarks in Alabama, but nothing that I would consider a national tourist attraction.

    Unless you count the Boll Weevil statue in Enterprise, AL. I've been there.

    I've done most of the touristy things in the SF Bay Area for school trips and things like that but I had never walked across the Golden Gate Bridge even though I went to school in the city like 5 mins from it.  BF and I finally went and did that in December!

    So all the DC shiz I've sorta seen. I actually didn't go see the White House till a couple years ago for the first time, but not inside...did the easter egg roll on the lawn and saw Justin Beiber. Ohhhhhhh yeaaaaaah. I've stood next to the Washington Monument, but never inside. And then all the other monuments I've been 'inside'.
    VA touristy things though like Luray Caverns, Skyline Drive, Shenandoah Park, Natural Bridge, etc. I've never seen those. I'm going to plan some trips to those places soon though so that I can take Little Bean.

    I was just in Florida and did Disney and Sea World. Sea World was way better. I didn't really like the rides at Disney, and all the strollers and kids annoyed me. Yes I should have expected it, but I didn't think it would be THAT bad. If I never see another stroller in my life I will die a happy woman, and going to Disney has made me seriously re-think having children.<div>
    </div><div>As for the OP, I think I've done all the touristy things my hometown has to offer that I'd actually enjoy. There's a few things I haven't done that don't sound all that great, which is probably why I haven't done them.</div>
