Answer: Cadillac Mountain

The top of Cadillac Mountain is the first to see the sun. This mountain is located on Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park, a gorgeous national park located on the Maine coast in the mid-section of the state. Due to the fact that the mountain rises 1530 feet, it is the tallest point along the North Atlantic Seaboard. Mount Katahdin is the tallest peak. Mount Washington in New Hampshire is the highest point in the Northeastern U.S. Originally called Green Mountain, the name was later changed in honor of French explorer Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac. The summit can be reached by a paved road or hiking trails, a popular activity for those who want to see the sunrise first thing in the morning.

2. All cities listed are the capitals of their respective states. Three of them are named for United States presidents. Which one is NOT?

4. Which state can boast the "Granite Capital of the World"?

From Quiz The Trivia Capital of the World

Answer: Georgia

5. Animals: What animal links a city in New York, a nickname of a famous showman, and a beast of the family Bovidae?

From Quiz Twenty Shades of Red, White, and Blue

6. There are fifty US states and 26 letters in the alphabet. That's roughly two states per letter assuming an even distribution over the entire alphabet. How many states actually start with the letter "C"?

From Quiz USA to a T? Oh I "C"

Answer: Three

The three states are Connecticut, Colorado and California. At least they are well distributed, being in New England (east coast), west and Pacific coast.

Colorado, the 38th state and Centennial State, and the eighth largest, is fifteen times as big as Connecticut and has about half as many people again.

7. Red Skelton entertained Americans over a long and hilarious career. What was his real name?

Answer: Richard Bernard Skelton

8. In honor of whom was Arab, Alabama originally supposed to have been named?

From Quiz It's Named After WHO?

Answer: The first postmaster's son

Arab, a city that lies in both Cullman and Marshall counties in Alabama, was named after the son of the town's founding father and first postman. Ironically, the post office officials to whom postmaster Tuttle Thompson turned in his requested name for the town, actually MISSPELLED his son's name! So, ARAD Thompson had his name "corrected" by the U.S. Postal Service, and Arab, Alabama got its name. Now, when the people who send letters all over the country take to incorrectly spelling stuff, that's pretty bad! Of course, this all happened in 1892, and it's just a little bit too late to fix now.
