We are two swedes who decided to visit each state of the US before we die. We've been to 10 different states and in the summer of 2013 we plan on adding a few more to our list. We thought we might start in New Orleans, LA, spend a few days there and then go north, via Mississippi, to Memphis, TN. After some time there we want to go east through Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. We have friends and family in Pennsylvania, so we know what to do there and we're ending our trip with a few days in NYC.
So, we thought maybe someone here could give us ideas on what to do on the way. Graceland is a must as Elvis is a huge legend in Sweden. We have a few ideas on what to do in New Orleans and Washington DC, but we're searching the internet for interesting things to see or do in the other states.
We plan on spending 4 weeks and approximately $8000 on this trip. We love your country and are interested in pretty much everything about it. Ideas anyone?
