True, but they are also east of the Mississippi. So you have all those that are entirely west of the river.

Actually four if you include Minnesota and Louisiana which straddle the Mississippi River.

Contiguous states.

If they're contiguous, you'd better get vaccinated before you leave...

There are some shorter routes that get it down to about 9300 miles, but you don't see as many places along the way. It's definitely worth the extra 600 miles to hit a few cool cities along the way.
You MUST use the pacific coast highway if you ever take a road trip north/south in California. Work sends me all over the country and the trips that I enjoy the most was driving on that highway. Seriously some of the best ocean views I've ever seen.
Anyway here's my list...


And up to Montreal Canada for the f1 Grand Prix.

I have been in all 50 states of the union, but just realized that two states I have only visited by bicycle: Maine and Rhode Island.

You're missing some amazing parts of the country! New England and the west coast are some of my favorite places.

And Delaware?? That's like the "free space" on a Bingo card!

I am blessed to have a job that sent me to most of the places on my map. I was able to spend a day in/around Seattle. Went up the space needle and while I was up there I was talking to one of the folks there commenting on Mount Rainier. I said "that cloudy looking thing over there?" (fairly hazy that day) they replied "yep". Looked up directions and saw it was only a 2-3hour drive. The time of day that it was I hopped on the elevator and got in the car for a nice drive. When I got up there close to mount Rainier I had to make a pit stop... I couldn't help but notice the air had such a clean smell. All I could smell was pine trees.

I've also had the chance to drive up and down the Pacific Coast Highway. One trip up from Bakersfield to San Francisco and from San Francisco down to LA. That is one of the most beautiful and fun roads I've ever driven on.
