Well, I've always lived in California, and was born in Florida, so that's 2! :)

In '86, my parents bought a Corvette in the Miami area (most of the family lives out there), and we drove it across the country -- that was when I was small enough to fit in the hatchback, LOL!

We went through:

Georgia
Alamama
Mississippi
Louisiana
Texas
New Mexico
Arizona

I've also, on other trips, been to:

Nevada
Utah
Idaho

PS: If you fly over a state, does that count? ;D

I live in Alabama.  I have been to Florida, South Dakota, Virginia, Lousiana, and Texas.  On a road trip to Texas, the car drove through several states on the way there, and I am not counting any of them that I did not do anything in.  The same way how I did not count Minnesota, where an airport was on the way to South Dakota.

Colorado (airport stop)
Delaware (drove through)
Illinois (Chicago airport)
New Jersey (drove through)

I want to go to Italy on my next big trip.
