Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Chicago, IL to Milwaukee, WI

The distance between Chicago and Milwaukee is our shortest at only 90 miles apart. Connected by Interstate 94, both cities are on the shores of Lake Michigan. Chicago is the home of the food-coma producing deep-dish pizza, while Milwaukee is home to several large breweries including Miller and Pabst.
2. Atlanta, GA to Nashville, TN

Atlanta to Nashville is our second shortest trip at 250 miles. Chattanooga, TN sits about halfway between the two cities. Atlanta was the site of the 1996 Olympics and has one of the busiest airports in the world. Nashville is considered the home of country music and is home to the one and only Grand Ole Opry.
3. Dallas, TX to El Paso, TX

Dallas to El Paso is 635 miles apart without ever leaving the state of Texas. If Texas was its own country, it would be the 40th largest country in the world! Dallas is home to the self-proclaimed "America's Team", otherwise known as the Dallas Cowboys. El Paso is home to Fort Bliss and is known for its phenomenal Tex-Mex cuisine.
4. Tucson, AZ to Denver, CO

It is about 885 miles from Tucson to Denver with a few different choices for how to get from A to B. This might be the prettiest drive on the list with few to no interstates and the gorgeous Rocky Mountains to see along the way. Tucson is home to the saguaro cactus, the largest cactus species that often grows over 40 feet tall. Tucson is also home to Saguaro National Park where many of these brilliant cacti can be seen. Denver is the largest city in the Rockies and a fun destination for spending time outdoors. Denver is very close to Rocky Mountain National Park where you can see some of the most beautiful views in America.
5. Miami, FL to St. Louis, MO

There are 1215 miles between Miami and St. Louis. Miami is known for its Cuban culture and nightlife. Miami is also known for its warm weather and pristine beaches. St. Louis lies on the Mississippi River and has the famous Gateway Arch. St. Louis was also host to the 1904 Summer Olympics, the third modern games. Overwhelmingly, the competitors for the games were from the United States.
6. Minneapolis, MN to Orlando, FL

There are 1550 miles that separate Minneapolis from Orlando. On the banks of the Mississippi River, Minneapolis is known for being the home of the musician Prince. Ice fishing in the winter and water sports in the summer are frequent pastimes in Minneapolis. Of course, Orlando is known for Disney World. Orlando is also home to the Universal and Sea World theme parks.
7. Salt Lake City, UT to Pittsburgh, PA

It would take about 1860 miles of driving to go from Salt Lake City to Pittsburgh. Salt Lake City is known for its Mormon heritage and beautiful temple. There are also ski slopes close by for winter entertainment. Pittsburgh is nicknamed the "Steel City" being historically the number one steel producer in the United States. Pittsburgh also has the nickname of the "City of Bridges" with over 400 bridges. The Allegheny River and the Ohio River meet in Pittsburgh.
8. Houston, TX to Seattle, WA

It would take a few full days to travel around 2260 miles from Houston to Seattle. Houston is actually one of the largest cities in the United States and is home to ground control for NASA. Does "Houston, we have a problem!" sound familiar? Seattle is known for its coffee and its music scene. Grunge bands like Nirvana, Pear Jam, and Alice In Chains hail from Seattle.
9. Portland, OR to Buffalo, NY

There are 2640 highway miles that separate Portland from Buffalo. Portland loves its arts; both theater and music have a strong presence there. They also have many outdoor activities including the famous Mount Hood, the highest mountain in Oregon. Buffalo is on the border with Ontario, Canada, and is very close to the iconic Niagara Falls. Buffalo's location on the east side of Lake Erie results in large amounts of snowfall in winter.
10. San Diego, CA to Augusta, ME

Going diagonally 3175 miles from the southwest US to the northeast, we have our longest trip from San Diego to Augusta. The weather is about ideal in San Diego with tons of attractions from LEGOLAND to SeaWorld. San Diego also has fantastic beaches and borders Mexico. Augusta is the smallest city on the list but it is the capital of the state of Maine. One of Augusta's coolest attractions is Fort Western built in the 1750s during the French and Indian War.
