My suggestion would be the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine...a museum of people collections of stuff...from mummies to matchbooks.

Most of those I have done and the ones I still want to get to are covered, but I did not see:

The Lincoln Library in Springfield Ill.
The Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline drive (don't do it in the spring)
(About the Natchez Trace - Do that in the spring)
If you get in striking range of SE MI, plan two days at the Henry Ford - the Museum and Greenfield Village.

Pretty much the rest have been covered.

Every time I see bucket list I think of the old song:

Better make sure your bucket does not have a hole in it.

We just crossed one off our "Bucket List". We spent four months in the Canadian Maritimes and three of that was in Newfoundland. We travel to Newfoundland early in June in hopes of seeing "Iceburgs", and we were not dispointed. I would rate a trip to Newfoundland right up there with Alaska.

We're still trying to cross off another on our list "Northern Lights"!

"Happy Trails"

You also need to try the food at the Columbia Restaurant in the Ybor City area of Tampa

Columbia Restaurant - Oldest Restaurant

and close to the fairgrounds where the RV show takes place is Danny's All American Diner (seen on Drive-ins, Diners & Dives)

There is a Ruby Falls near Helen GA. The 1st weekend in June there is a hot air balloon race from Helen to the coast. There is also 2 bike rallys that happen to be there that weekend. US Rider News magazine and the Victory Motorcycle Club (VMC) S.E. Rally. They merged to draw more vendors to the event.

Nobody has mentioned the different food festivals held all over the country. While visiting the other suggested sights, look for these. We've been to garlic, mushroom, corn bread, hamburger, lilac (yes, there were some food items flavored with lilac), BBQ, Green Egg (type of grills used to cook at the festival) to name a few. They usually have RV parking and its a great way to meet local people and sample their cuisine.

We also love the small Midwestern farm towns, many with o'nite camping
State and county fairs

Glad to be able to suggest these and glad you reminded me.
Have fun! Be safe.
Great suggestions! I visited Victoria and Butchart Gardens before going on an Alaska cruise but it was a guick day trip. I wonder what it would be like to take the RV over on the ferry.

We have been to every State in the USA and all but 2 Provinces in Canada and my DW says she wants to see every State Capitol building. So we return!(now at 32 of them) When we think about it, it is easy to say that you have been to every State and not get but a few miles beyond the Interstate! There are things like stopping at the Iowa State fair in August and when going thru in July it is not available. We first visited Yellowstone over 30 years ago, and we went again this year and realized that what we remembered and what we missed while there was huge! When we first retired we bought a 50ft Motor yacht and traveled 4 years circumnavigating the eastern US and included parts of Canada. visiting a city like St Louis, NYC or Chicago and entering it by water is a whole different experience than doing it by MH or Air. We did the trip of nearly 10,000 miles all under 10 MPH. Wherever you decide to go, do it slow enough to stop and smell the Roses. It will be a much more enjoyable trip. Start at St Charles Mo. and follow the route of Lewis and Clark all the way to Oregon. Lots of beautiful scenery along the way and a world of History included. Follow the Mississippi River from top to it's mouth and visit the locks and dams. View the barges as they lock through. Get in a conversation with a barge hand as the water drops or fills and ask about his experiences on the river. Rent a john boat and catch a catfish or a walleye while you are there. Heck, take the boat through one of the locks yourself!

Expensive if you take BC ferries but cheaper if you take the Washington State ferry from Anacortes, Wa to Sidney, BC. And the bonus is there isn't long border lineups. From there you can stay at an RV park in Victoria and visit the city and Butchart gardens. Running across the Malahat to Nanaimo where you can stay at Living Forest, a CG on the Ocean. Further North on the Island is Salmon Point in Campbell River, where you can fish for some big salmon. The CG is also on the Ocean with spectacular views.
