The Top State And Territory Tourist Locations:D-H

Updated on July 15, 2013

Every area has a prime tourist location. Do you know what the top tourist site is in your State or Territory?

The Frog has decided to go alphabetically through the States and Territories answering what the top tourist site is in each one. Several sources will be used. You may not agree with your area's pick. Use the comments section and tell us what you think it is.

The first hub I did in this series is linked here.

The goal is to give people ideas on something they can do with their family or alone. If you really consider all, you really do not have to travel very far to have a great vacation.

In most circumstances, I will attempt to link the site's website. I will also search for pictures if possible.

Ok, let's see what the top tourist sites are:

Delaware

If Delaware is the State you would like to go to, you may be curious about the top tourist site there.

It is unanimous, Dover Downs is the choice. We are talking a beautiful Hotel, Casino, Horse Racing, and Dover Downs International Speedway in close proximity.

It is an entertainment extravaganza.

Dover Downs in Dover, Delaware is the best choice for a Delaware vacation.

District Of Columbia

When you choose the District of Columbia as your vacation choice, it may be difficult choosing what to do. Since this is where the White House is, there are many tourist opportunities there. So what is the top choice in the District of Columbia?

  1. The Smithsonian Institution Building
  2. The Smithsonian Arts and Industries Building
  3. The Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum
  4. The Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

The majority are all within walking distance of each other. You could print this map or they do have them at the information center at #1.


Florida

Florida is a tourist paradise.

You will have no issue with finding something to do in Florida.

So what do you predict is the top tourist attraction in Florida--Nope, not Disney World.

It's the Florida Keys. A line of islands off the Southern Florida coast. The best known one is Key West. Yes, the tourist hotspot in Florida are the Florida Keys.

Georgia

This beautiful Southern State has many tourist opportunities. It is difficult to choose a top site, but the consensus says that the best site in Georgia would be Stone Mountain.

Stone Mountain is about 30 minutes from Atlanta. It is a granite and quartz mountain that has a beautiful carving in the side. This carving was made by the same man who made Mt Rushmore in South Dakota. The carving is of Stonewall Jackson, General Lee and President Davis, the main men of the Confederates. This area has walking trails, picnic areas and many other amenities.

Yes, if heading to Georgia, check out Stone Mountain.

Guam

Guam is a territory of the United States. It is located in the South Pacific, and is a top travel place for many Japanese tourists.

So what is the #1 tourist place in Guam?

Just 1 mile off the Southern coast is a small island called Cocos Island. It is a serene island and you can para sail, snorkel and play with dolphins.

Try Guam out for your next vacation and visit Cocos Island.

Hawaii

Hawaii is a tourist attraction in itself. Who wouldn't like to take a vacation to this island paradise?

So what do tourists visit most in Hawaii?

It is the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument. In Oahu you will find the USS Arizona and other World War Two Artifacts.

It is the #1 spot in Hawaii where Pearl Harbor took place.

Conclusion

So if you are looking for a vacation idea, you have several here.

Keep your eyes and ears open, the next installment to this series will be worked on immediately.

Have fun traveling, and be safe.
