Oh the Places I've Been - City Travel History

I've travelled extensively, for business and pleasure, and always kept a travel diary. Here are all US and Canadian cities (Metro areas), listed with population data from an old AC Nielson web page. Many times, Lyn and Jesse travel with me, and collect the same city. Jesse's travel diary starts in 1992 (age 5).

How many cities/Metropolitan areas have you visited? Write me to swap stories.
I've been to 99 out of the 100 largest US Cities, just 1 more to go.
Also, check out my page ranking the US airports
