68. Visit one state I've never been to before

Date completed: 1 September 2011

While driving to Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia, we naturally had to pass through the Carolinas. Well, I'd never visited South Carolina before, but during our brief stops I bought a postcard and snarfed a few markers. So I'm counting it. I'll return someday, I'm sure.

68. Visit one state I've never been to before

See, the trouble is that I live in Virginia, and I've already visited a fair number of the states nearby.

It's looking like my best bets are Rhode Island and South Carolina. Google Maps tells me it'll take about 8 hours to get to Providence or to Columbia. I'd like to visit a reasonably large city and explore a bit, not just step over the border and call it done.

Unfortunately, I just don't have any reason to go to either of those states. Neither of them hold any major SF/F conventions, anime conventions, comic conventions, Celtic festivals, or Renaissance Faires. I don't, as far as I know, have any close friends or family in either state. My husband and I have discussed going to Dragon*Con in 2011 or 2012 (which would also accomplish Thing 90) but we'd only hit SC if we drove. And we haven't decided for sure that we're driving yet.

I'll have to do some more research. In the meantime, if anyone has any recommendations for either state, feel free to comment.
