Think you know your way around the land of the free? America may be one of the newer countries to enter the global scene, but it has dominated it for generations. It is referred to as the United States of America for a reason. Each state is unique and plays its own part in shaping the American identity. Whether it comes down to historic importance, cultural importance, or place as a thriving modern-day powerhouse, there is a lot to be found in every US state. The same goes for each of the 50 state capitals.
While some say that there are 52 states, which includes Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, neither of these is technically a US state. Washington D.C. is a federal district and Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the US. Technically, the first state was Delaware and the last was Hawaii, which was admitted in 1959. These states, of course, have their own unique and interesting capitals.
