    I visited the Tesla store in Santa Monica CA today. This after three visits each to the Menlo Park and Washington, DC stores. So three different stores for a total of seven visits. Can anyone top this?

    The stores are great places to hang out now and then out while you're waiting for delivery, and I've probably helped sell at least a few Model S's to boot. Or have I just gone daffy?

    Menlo Park 75-100 times, HQ (when in San Carlos) also about the same...

    L.A. (Santa Monica) - 3 times

    When I used to work for them... Lol

    Amazingly enough have yet to visit any outside of CA...

    Hope to see Scottsdale in January and Chicago possibly in the spring!

    How about none. There is not a store short of 400 miles of me and none where we have traveled. Yet i do own a Roadster and have seen a model S.

    I have been to the NYC store twice (2x) in consecutive days last December. And the Dania Beach (1x) store for a test drive.

    Same here in Atlanta. There were rumors of a possible showroom around here at one point, but that seems to have been cancelled or at least put on the back burner. We are getting a service center any day now, though.

    I can't count as I have been there a few too many times. When I picked up my Roadster and too many times trying to decide color combinations for my Model S.

    However, once they open one in my area they may need a restraining order to keep me away:love:

    Zero. I'm visiting family in South Florida the third week of January and I may sneak away to the Miami store.

    I live ~ 300mi from the nearest T store but family is near them

    Menlo after deposit to look around
    Menlo after cars were being built to look at S alpha / beta
    Factory ride event
    Factory test drive
    Menlo after cars were built to fold seats down and lay in the back of the S
    Santana Row to see the store and sit 'Shotgun' (only to hear my car was done 2 days later but I was 300 miles away once again.)
    Factory Pick-up

    Wow, some of y'all are obsessed! I thought my 4ish trips to the Washington Square (Gresham, OR) was a lot!

    Portland Washington Square x4
    Menlo Park x too many times to count, maybe 16? (remember it is my service center, also)
    NY x1
    Factory x3
    HQ/Palo Alto x3

    Visits outside of Menlo Park were mostly for charging opportunity. Factory visits were for events (I was there for Shokunin's delivery today, thanks!). NY was because I was there. If you pull out the visits connected to 70amp charging, it looks much more reasonable.
