What best represents a state? Is it a historic building, or a scenic natural phenomena? How about something the state is best known for? Any and all of these criteria come into play when coming up with a landmark that represents each state.

Of course, no one building or monument could possibly cover everything about a state, so the landmarks in the list above cover some of the best known, most historic or iconic, or even just the most popular. Scroll through the gallery above and see if you agree for your own state, then make a list of the ones you haven't yet visited, and make plans for a 50 state road trip.
