This Is The ONE Thing You Must Do In Each U.S. State

June 19th, 2014 by Suzy Strutner, Huffington Post


"If you could only tell a visitor to do ONE thing in your whole state, what would it be?"

We asked this question to ourselves, to our trusted friends, and to a whole bunch of HuffPost editors. We thought our comrades' answers would help us create the ultimate American travel guide.

But their suggestions — from ice cream scoops to National Park hikes — did much more than that. They reminded us that America is truly beautiful… every snow-capped, white-sand, deep-fried corner of it.

We'll never be able to capture each state's huge array of awesomeness in a single post. But if you're looking to travel back to your American roots, this bucket list might be a good place to start.
