Ganked from xanath -- Gettin' Around

I've traveled a lot, but missed a lot of tourist destinations. The fact the only places I've gone in the States west of the Mississippi are LA and MN doesn't help ;)

The Alamo
The Aleutian Islands
Amana Colonies
the Arch (St. Louis)
Aspen, CO
the Badlands
the Berkshires -- I never thought of this as a tourist destination...
the Big Ball of Twine
the Winchester Mystery House
the Black Hills
Brooklyn Bridge -- Actually I don't think I've ever walked or driven across it. But I've SEEN a lot! (I confess it here: I have never BEEN to Brooklyn, largely b/c my parents are from the Bronx.)
Cape Cod -- It would be an OK place if everybody LEFT.
Carlsbad Caverns
Central Park -- My favorite place in the WORLD.
Chimney Rock
Chinese Theater
Churchill Downs
College World Series
Colonial Williamsburg
Crater Lake
Death Valley
Disneyland (CA)
Disneyworld (FL) -- I was in the park several times for conferences held at resorts. Hate it.
Door County
Empire State Building -- Another one of my fav places ever.
the Everglades
Fenway Park -- Many times.
Fisherman’s Wharf
Florida Keys
Four Corners National Park
French Quarter/Bourbon Street -- Sadly I only went to N.O. once.
Glacier National Park
Golden Gate Bridge
Grand Canyon
Great Salt Lake
Harper's Ferry
the Hamptons
Hoover Dam
Independence Hall
Johnson Space Center
Joshua Tree
Kennedy Space Center/Cape Canaveral
Lake Placid -- I spent a lot of time in upstate N.Y. growing up.
Lake Tahoe
Las Vegas – the Strip
Mackinac Island
Madison Square Garden
Mall of America
Mammoth Cave
Mojave Desert
Mt. Rushmore
Mt. St. Helens
Mt. Vernon -- My mom took me there on an awesome spring trip we took to D.C. when I was in 4th or 5th grade.
The Mystery Spot
Napa Valley
Niagara Falls
the North Shore of Maui
the Ozarks/Branson
Petrified Forest
Pike’s Peak Redwood Nat’l Park
Pike Place Market
Pearl Harbor
the Road to Hana
Rocky Mountains
Rodeo Drive/Beverly Hills Route 66
Sea World (any location)
Sears Tower -- Yep. Whee!
Sequoia Nat’l Park
Sierra Nevada Mountains
Six Flags Over Texas -- I've been to the NJ and GA locations
Smithsonian Institute Museums
Smoky Mountain Nat’l Park
Sonoma Valley
South Padre Island
Space Needle
Statue of Liberty -- I've never been UP it, but I've been on the island
Stone Mountain
Times Square -- I can't stand how slow people walk there!
United Nations
Universal Studios -- Went to the one in Orlando as part of a conference fun night.
Vail, CO
World of Coca-Cola -- Several times. The new one is about to open. I'm shocked this is listed on the list.
The World's Largest Garden Gnome
Wrigley Field
Yankee Stadium
Yellowstone Nat’l Park/Old Faithful
Yosemite Nat’l Park
Zion Nat’l Park

I've actually never been to a National Park. This is largely because, as I just noted, I've never been out West. Also, there's only one park in New England, Acadia, and according to New England concepts of travel distance (anything over an hour is FAR FAR AWAY), the trip of 3 hours to its location in Maine was too intimidating for my family to bother going.
