Great list!

 

Lucy walks to East Orange, New Jersey in "The Marriage License" (how she made it through the Holland Tunnel she'll never know).

 

The gang drives through Pennsylvania in "First Stop."

 

Lucy Ricardo once spent two weeks in Oklahoma - the state, not the musical.

 

Lucy Carter also went to Texas in "Guess Who Owes Lucy $23.50."

Virginia -- Lucy and Viv drop in on Arthur Godrey at his ranch

 

An Appendix on the Places the Mertzes Have Been:

 

1. Minnesota -- they took "a lovely little trip" there for Ethel to have her gall stones taken out at Mayo Brothers

2. New York -- they lived there, but Fred also played Jamestown's Palace

3. Illinois -- Fred and Ethel once played a split week in Peoria

4. Indiana -- Fred left his autograph book there
