I have visited every state with the exception of New York, Philadelphia, and Connecticut. I drove to all the states I visited with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska. Actually, I drove to Alaska once and I flew the second time I went. Something about driving through the Yukon at night, when it is pitch black (and I mean pitch black) turned me off driving the second time I went. Some were family vacations, some business trips and some were random trips. My favorite state was Florida. I had so much fun and I often find myself yearning to return to that state. I was sent to Fort Lauderdale on a business trip. We were there for a month and a half. It felt like spring break more than a business trip. Why did I like it? The people, the climate and the night life. I had so much fun. Great question.
