Highlights of Your State?

I just recommended the Hocking Hills of Ohio in another Thread and thought this would be interesting to hear from others regarding there state's highlights that we may not be aware of. I know some states are blessed with incredible features throughout, but how about those states that are not. What are the can't miss if we visit your state standout features that we may not know about? Please share.

Great thread Idea.

When you think of PA, everyone automatically thinks of the Gettysburg/Lancaster and the areas around Erie. They are great. But, I will also suggest the southwestern corner sometimes referred to as the Laurel Highlands. Ohiopyle State Park, Fort Necessity and Fort Ligonier, Jumonville, Laurel Caverns, Falling Water, several beautiful high end golf courses, and Lady Luck Casino are just some of the great attractions.

Nothing hidden in Ga that I am aware. Everybody knows about every fall, river, lake, canyon and historic site in the state. Coosa Lock and Dam where I could make a reservation for our favorite spot a week or less in advance anytime during the year is already booked into June.
The only hidden gem just may be our home or the small creek on our huntclub LOL

Tifton, GA has the Georgia Museum of Agriculture. Among other things they grind and sell corn meal with water wheel and make turpentine in old still to sell.

Also just next to the GMA parking lot is a monument to the designer of the Interstate Highway System who was from Tifton.

Tifton also has the most entries and exits for any town (pop vs entries/exits) than any other city, town, etc on the Interstate system according to locals.

In Arizona

I-17 exit 256 Badger Springs Road exit to Agua Fria National Monument and drive to the parking lot. Take the trail about 1/2 mile to the river. To your left will be pictographs. Wear comfortable shoes and take water. Make sure to lock your vehicle. No services are available at this exit.

Please only take photos, do not touch or desecrate the pictographs.

Another site is the V-Bar-V Ranch. 2.8 mi. southeast of the I-17 at Sedona Exit 298, just beyond the Beaver Creek Campgrounds.  

The site is only open on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. A 1/3 mile hike on a wide trail to the site. Be aware, the gates are closed and locked when not open and the pictograph site is also protected by a locked fence which is only open during listed hours.

A Red Rock Pass or equivalent is required per vehicle. Site is operated by the US Forest Service and docents are on site. There is a small gift shop.

The V Bar V Heritage Site is the largest known petroglyph (rock art) site in the Verde Valley, and one of the best-preserved. The site consists of 1,032 petroglyphs.

Here in Colorado nothing worth seeing. May as well bypass the state completely, roads are so bad you are better off driving around the entire state via a neighboring state/s like Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, New Mexico and Utah and even in Utah I would stay north of I70 nothing south of that line either. If you choose not to heed this advice and come anyway be aware there are never any campsites available, ever, so no place to stay even if you do come anyway
