Rhode Island
- Never Been To

Vermont
Bennington
Brattleboro
Burlington
Montpelier/Barre
Rutland


Obviously there have been more but I'll cut them off at a (perceived) level of state-wide significance (otherwise I'd only be able to say 1 or 2 cities in like NH or VT).

There's also this that I posted awhile ago in a USUI thread...

Yellow = Lived in for any period of time.
Green = Spent at least one night in.
Blue = Definitely "set foot" in. This counts rest areas and gas stations; any instance I left the car/bus for whatever reason.
Red = Drove through without getting out of the car, or not sure/don't remember.
Add Hillsborough County, NH to the "green" list as of a month from now. And swap the colors of Fairfield and New Haven counties in CT, I goofed. :lol:

In general I've been through more places than I've truly been to, but I guess who hasn't.

No, I've never been to Vermont, and never been to any big cities in New Hampshire.

ah. sorry, I misunderstood what you were saying. I thought you meant there was nothing worth checking out in NH.

Sabretooth said:
Both are in the 90ks I believe, but not much of a metro.
Manchester is at 107k, I think and Nashua at 86 or more...Metro is probably about a half million- but is actually part of the greater Boston metro and is growing at a pretty rapid pace, at least by recent northeastern standards.

There aren't a half million in the Manchester metro, I don't care what the census says. There are only slightly more than a million in all of NH, and the population density from I-93 to the coast is probably fairly uniform save for the cities and villages. It has only a very thin ring of suburbia - pretty much lower Hooksett and a chunk of Bedford. Maybe Londonderry, but it's not contiguous. Even if Nashua was included it would be a stretch, but I think when not cconsidered as part of the greater Boston metro, Nashua is considered more along the lines with Lowell/Dracut and even Lawrence.

The area certainly is growing, and at a rate that is becoming quite problematic especially to the "picture-postcard" towns that are concerned about losing their character. And most of the influx is people from MA trying to get away from "Taxachusetts". This is a state, mind you, which is quite proud of the fact that it isn't MA.

But believe me, they're destroying that state in more ways than just sprawl. The disposition and attitudes of the general population is more than just a small part of the reason why I couldn't wait to get out. If it were even just 20 years earlier, I think I would have moved there and stayed.

When it comes to the NE, I'm pretty well-traveled, but I still think that I need to see more of the region, especially outside Southern New England and NY/NJ.


Connecticut:

I've been in almost every important area in CT except the majority of Litchfield, Tolland, and Windham counties (rural northwest/northeast)

New York:

New York City (all boroughs)
Hempstead
Yonkers
White Plains
Newburgh
Albany
Syracuse
Utica (drove through)
Rochester
Buffalo

Massachusetts:

Springfield
Holyoke
Worcester
Framingham
Lowell
Cambridge
Boston
Plymouth
Fall River
New Bedford


Rhode Island:

Providence


New Jersey:

Hoboken
Jersey City
Newark
Elizabeth
Paterson
Trenton
Camden
Atlantic City


Pennsylvania:

Philadelphia
Harrisburg (drove through)
Pittsburgh
Scranton (drove through)


Maryland:

Baltimore
Silver Spring


Washington, DC


I haven't been to Maine. I have driven (or been in a car driven by parents) through New Hampshire and Vermont to get to Quebec and Ontario a few times, and I obviously have driven through Delaware to get to Maryland and DC.

Going to Ocean City, Maryland in June for the first time.

I've only been to three states in the NE, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Does that tell you how pathetic my NE US travelling has been? I will be doing some more, though. I just really started doing this like 4 years ago.
