My state has contributed Microsoft Surface tablets, Windows in general, and I'd imagine like the Wii and games, as my state is also home to Nintendo of America.
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Wisconsin - Ashley Furniture, plus I'm sure there have been a few Harleys and AMC automobiles.
And you can't forget the Kohler bathroom.

/There's also been trips to the Wisconsin Dells and Lake Geneva...

South Carolina has been featured in numerous trips to Hilton Head and Kiawah Island, as well as a few Pawleys Island Rope Hammocks.  There were also at least two trips to my hometown of Myrtle Beach.

Oh, and Vanna White was a contestant. Does that count??

From my home state of Maine, I've seen Old Town canoes offered before.

Of course, with Maine being nicknamed "Vacationland", Price had offered a few trips there.

I moved the topic to The Talk is Right because we are talking about the actual show.

As an aside, I am liking how the show is offering trips to so many various parts of the U.S.A. I've always been for seeing the different parts of the beautiful United States, and it's nice to see the show offering trips to great places that many people wouldn't think to travel to.

I think Iowa has just contributed grocery products back in the day.  Rath hams and bacon, Iowa pork, etc. 

I live in Colorado now.  The show has offered many trips here.

We also have former staffer Jeff Thisted who was born, and went to grade school in Brunswick. He is remembered to Price fans as proposing to former model Rebecca Mary Pribonic on camera.

Not sure how anyone from PA could forget the trip to Punxsatawney that they offered on Groundhog Day in Season 37...unless you were trying to. :P

(For anyone not from around here...unless you want to head way up to Bennezette to see the Elk Viewing Center, there's not really anything in Punxsy that makes it worth a vacation.)

My home province of New Brunswick contributed a red Bricklin that was offered on the show in the mid-70's.

hello all.  I live in Oklahoma.  I don't think that they have given away trips to Oklahoma City or Tulsa.

But during Season 36, they have given away Frankoma Pottery & Dishes. 
The Frankoma Pottery & Dishes were from my home city of Sapulpa, OK.

Did not know Vanna was a SC resident! If Roger had got his wish and had Mark Wahlberg as the new TPIR host, then a SC native would have hosted (Florence, SC)

I forgot one for NC: Kitty Hawk kites. They were offered a few times toward the end of Bob's tenure IIRC

     I think I saw a shopping trip to the Mall of America not too long ago (I'm from Minnesota).
Yep, they had that trip to "Minneapolis" (*cough* Bloomington *cough*) a few times, along with a showcase featuring a trip to see the MLB All-Star Game at Target Field.

Back when they gave away Ford Rangers, those were built here in St. Paul a few miles away from me.
