Is there a particular word (slang or not) or perhaps a phrase that describes a location or place you've already visited?

    Been there, done that. – Konrad Gajewski Aug 12 '15 at 13:00

  • visited, noun : "the act or an instance of visiting" – Mazura Apr 19 '19 at 0:16

"All the old familiar places"
has a page all of its own, But since the phrase has been appropriated, not to say subverted, by the Joker, 'haunts' might be a better choice

plural noun: haunts (This is the Google response)

a place frequented by a specified person.
"the bar was a favourite haunt of artists of the time"
synonyms: hang-out, stamping ground, meeting place,  
territory, domain, purlieu, resort,

Collins gives both verb (haunt) and noun (haunt / haunts)

haunt (verb) Collins Dictionary
to visit (a place) frequently

also (noun)

(often plural) a place visited frequently "an old haunt of hers"

    A haunt is a place that you have visited often. The question doesn't necessarily require that. – Chenmunka Aug 12 '15 at 14:17
  • @Chenmunka, you could be right. – Hugh Aug 12 '15 at 14:28

    ah, by the acceptance of this answer I will assume they had meant someplace often visited as opposed to the singular visit implied in the OP. – Yeshe Aug 12 '15 at 15:18

I believe you are looking for Sojourned or Toured

From the Oxford Dictionary

Sojourn - Stay somewhere temporarily: i.e. she had sojourned in Egypt

Tour - A short trip to or through a place in order to view or inspect something, A journey for pleasure in which several different places are visited, i.e. they had toured in a little minivan


Of places that I had visited often in the past, I refer to them as my stomping grounds. This would generally refer to the area around the university I attended, where I spent summer vacations regularly, or where I grew up.
