That's my score. Two I haven't done yet but really want to do are Bryce Valley and Monument Valley. I love natural sites like that.

Thanks for giving it a go Irene. Both Bryce and Monument Valley are amazing, as are all the places we visited in Arizona and Utah!

Hi Sarah. I did it on your Facebook page and got 53 of them. We've driven past a couple others but didn't stop and visit so I didn't tick them. This is the best I've done on one of these list things. It helps that we've lived in 7 different states in different parts of the country. We always explore locally when we move someplace so have covered a lot of the USA. Our holdout is Hawaii. We've never been there and have no plans to visit in the future. Don't know why because it looks beautiful but there are too many other places on our list. I did get some ideas from your list though.

Only 16 on this - I haven't seen enough in the States. Interestingly, the picture for Lower East Side Tenement Museum National Historic Site was actually the basis of the cover for Led Zeppelin's 1975 album Physical Graffiti.

Quoting Borisborough

Interestingly, the picture for Lower East Side Tenement Museum National Historic Site was actually the basis of the cover for Led Zeppelin's 1975 album Physical Graffiti.

Really? The buildings are in a similar style but you can find such buildings all over NYC and no doubt other cities too. These images give a clear comparison:

The Led Zep one was a 'photoshopped' (well, altered) photo of 96 and 98 St. Mark's Place, NYC and the museum is 97 Orchard Street. You're right - not the same, but only three quarters of a mile between the two.

Grand total of 1 for me. I've done very little travel in the USA, partly because until recently, neither of us had driving licences, and most of the parks are tricky to get to without driving. That's why, despite having been to Miami, we didn't get to the everywhere - no public transport and the bus tour involved an alligator show!

Yes, you do really need to drive to see the national parks properly, unless you're happy to do some sort of coach tour!
