Now that we've unofficially started summer, it's time to start thinking about warm weather vacations to explore new states - or be a tourist in your own. Here's a list of the top tourist attractions in each of the 50 states to inspire you, based on the most-booked locations according to TripAdvisor. There are trolleys and walking tours, parks and zoos, breweries and food tastings - so many options. New Jersey's pick is whale watching, and the Statue of Liberty is New York's entry: it looks like that new museum opened just in time! And I can vouch for the Newport mansions in my home state of Rhode Island. Happy vacation planning!
