USA - Travel Trivia Questions

1. Why would you want to visit Blue Earth, Minnesota? Fortunately for their tourism department, Santa Claus did not put a copyright on his signature "Ho Ho Ho". Now eat your vegetables, children.

From Quiz
Why Should I Visit Here?

Answer: Jolly Green Giant Park and Giant Museum

Belying its name, the museum is actually quite small, but there is nothing small about the Jolly Green Giant statue behind it. It is 55 feet tall and would wear a size 78 shoe, if he were alive. Ho Ho Ho, y'all.

2. "Hey mom, what's that?" The children point to what looks like a massive beach, but wait a minute...there are no oceans anywhere near this state. The Bonneville Salt Flats are a great complement to the Great Salt Lake, though. Where are we?

From Quiz Road Trip Across the U.S.A.

Answer: Utah

The Bonneville Salt Flats are located between the Bonneville Speedway and the Great Salt Lake in Utah. The salt lies over the ground just like sand does on a beach, and it almost looks like snow on the ground. When the salt gets wet, though, it resembles gray clay.

3. Many people, myself included, always believed that Plymouth, Massachusetts was the site of the first Thanksgiving celebration in the US. Come to find out that it's not. What border town was the site?

From Quiz Oh! The Things You Can See!

Answer: San Elizario, Texas

Yes, it was in the border town of San Elizario, Texas in 1598 that a Thanksgiving feast was hosted by the conquistador Don Juan de Onate. San Elizario is also home to the first Main Street in America. It has become a small artist colony with friendly people who love to share their town's heritage. Some historians believe that thanksgiving may have been celebrated even earlier in Saint Augustine, Florida, but the evidence is unclear.

4. The intersection of New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts is located very near the highest point in Connecticut. What mountain is the high point located on?

From Quiz Tri-Points, Eastern Edition

Answer: Mount Frissell

The highest point in Connecticut is located on the side of Mount Frissell, and is 2380 feet. It is one the trickier high points to find in the US. The Appalachian Trail passes extremely close to Mount Frissell. Mount Greylock (3491 feet) is the highest spot in Massachusetts. Mount Marcy (5344 feet) is the high point in New York. Bear Mountain is the second highest point in Connecticut, at 2316 feet; it is the highest peak, just not the highest point, in Connecticut.

5. One morning I went to her house. She had left a note on the door saying she was "going out". She said she was going to a state where the capital city is on Interstate 20, but she was not going to the capital. What city did she take off to?

From Quiz Where Do You Go to My Lovely?

Answer: Carrollton, Georgia

The only capital city on Interstate 20 that fits this list is Atlanta, GA, but since she was not going there, it couldn't be Atlanta. Interstate 20 does not go through Carrollton, TX, but Interstate 35E does. Carrollton, GA, is about 50 miles west-southwest of Atlanta, GA, south of Interstate 20. Carrollton was not the original name planned for the city, but was incorporated as Carrollton back in December 1829. The original name was planned as Troupville, but Troup was disliked by the state, so they decided against it. Carrollton, TX, is a suburb of Dallas on the north side, although, there is also a Dallas, GA, northwest of Atlanta.

6. What colorful Wyoming national park is known for its geysers, particularly Old Faithful?

From Quiz Colorful U.S. Geography

Answer: Yellowstone

Yellowstone was the first national park in the US. It was signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872.

7. We're starting our journey on the north end of I-95. Which town in Maine is considered the start of the interstate?

From Quiz What's Along I-95? (US Interstate)

Answer: Houlton

Houlton is on the Canadian border. It is also the birthplace of Samantha Smith, a Girl Scout who traveled to the Soviet Union in 1982 upon invitation by Yuri Andropov.

8. The Dear Missus and I start our journey from our home in Charlotte, North Carolina. We head east to visit one of the state's many treasures, the retired battleship USS North Carolina. In which city is our Winnebago now parked?

From Quiz Where in the World is My Winnebago?

Answer: Wilmington

The seat of New Hanover County and North Carolina's major port city, Wilmington is home to a popular campus of the University of North Carolina (UNC-Wilmington). It is also a major motion-picture and television production center. The USS North Carolina (BB-55) served with great distinction during World War II, earning 15 battle stars, and was transferred from the US Navy in 1961. The great battleship is normally open every day for self-guided tours and serves as a memorial to all North Carolinians who died during the war.

9. The I-5 starts in Washington, and from there goes south. Where exactly in Washington does the I-5 start?

Blaine is the only place a freeway crosses the border to Canada in Washington. It's on the coast of the Strait of Georgia.

10. Which U.S. state produces the most apples?

12. Which U.S. state has the largest hockey stick?

From Quiz State Bragging Rights #3

Answer: Minnesota

An exact copy of a normal sized hockey stick but supersized can be viewed in the town of Eveleth, Minnesota. It is 110 feet long, weighs 5 tons and sits behind its counterpart, a 700 pound puck. This stick is a dedication to the ever popular sport of ice hockey.

13. Which U.S. state has the largest ball of twine?

From Quiz State Bragging Rights #2

Answer: Kansas

The largest ball of twine can be found in Cawker City, Kansas. It weighs over 17,500 pounds. Started by farmer Frank Stoeber in 1953 from bailer twine used for hay bales, the ball has grown to a circumference of over 40 feet. It grows annually at the Cawker City twine-a-thon which is held concurrently with a town picnic and parade. At the twine-a-thon Cawker City residents and visitors wind more twine around this huge ball. So, it is still growing !

14. Which U.S. state has the oldest state fair?

From Quiz State Bragging Rights #1

Answer: Maine

The Skowhegan State Fair has been held in Maine since 1819. As a means for local farmers to gain knowledge of agricultural advances and livestock breeding, the fair is an important event. Today the fair attracts thousands of exhibitors and visitors from around the country.

15. In the small town of Metropolis stands an imposing 25-foot bronze statue of Superman. He overlooks a museum built in his honor, and is attended by Superman regalia throughout his surroundings. In what state is Metropolis?

From Quiz Roadside America - Revenge of the Weird

Answer: Illinois

Metropolis is right next to the Illinois-Kentucky border. Though the museum is a little tacky, it's a nice stop for Superman fans.

16. In which Midwestern state would you find Carhenge, a replica of Britain's Stonehenge, made out of cars?

From Quiz Travels With Chango

Answer: Nebraska

Located near Alliance, Nebraska, Carhenge is the brainchild of Jim Reinders. It was dedicated in 1987, and in its infancy it was in danger of being destroyed as an "illegally zoned junkyard". Fortunately, the government recognized it as an official tourist attraction in the early 1990s.

17. Which state is home to the world's largest peanut?

From Quiz American Tourist Traps

Answer: Georgia

At 10 feet long, the world's largest peanut sits on top of a fifteen foot pillar in Ashburn, GA. The peanut in Texas is only six feet long, and the one in Oklahoma is only a piddling 36 inches.

18. Which state is proudly called the "Arsenal of the Nation"?

From Quiz Tour around the USA

Answer: Connecticut

Connecticut was the Continental Army's major supplier of arms and ammunition in the American Revolutionary War. It was one of the most industrialized states at that time. Connecticut factories still produce weapons and much more.

19. This city is looped by Interstates 264 and 265, where are you?

From Quiz Where Are You

Answer: Louisville, KY

I-64 runs through all these places, but the spurs only surround Louisville.

20. Having visited The Big Duck, let's now head south to The Big Chicken in Marietta, Georgia. What company ORIGINALLY owned this regionally famous landmark that looms to a height of 56 feet?

From Quiz What A State I Was In!

Answer: Johnny Reb's Chick, Chuck and Steak

When The Big Chicken was first built in 1956, it was owned by S.R. "Tubby" Davis. The building housed his restaurant, Johnny Reb's Chick, Chuck and Steak. In 1963, Mr. Davis added the iconic superstructure to the original building in an effort to capture the imaginations (and appetites) of passersby. After a few years, it became a franchisee of Kentucky Fried Chicken. A storm toppled the structure in 1993, but there was such an outcry to restore it to its former glory that KFC decided to not tear it on down, but rather to satisfy the public. If you're ever near Marietta, Georgia, just ask anyone for directions to anywhere, and you'll almost invariably get a response like, "go to the Big Chicken, then turn left... or right... or go straight". Talk about an icon!

21. Off we go into the wild blue yonder! Off to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, that is. What city in Virginia is the ONLY major city in Virginia that did not fall to Union troops during the War Between the States?

From Quiz Take a Ride on the Reading!

Answer: Lynchburg

The Blue Ridge Mountains extend all the way from Georgia into Pennsylvania. The city of Lynchburg was first settled by Europeans in 1757. It was named after a young 17 year-old man named John Lynch who began operating a ferry service across the James River. In 1865, Lynchburg served very briefly (for about five days, from April 6-10) as the capital of Virginia. The reason for the move to Lynchburg was to buffer the effects of the fall of Richmond along with the fall of the Confederacy, and to provide some semblance of government amidst the chaos of the war.

22. Want to have a unique wedding? Try out this tiny chapel that has come to be known as the "Smallest Church in America". Where along I-95 would you find this southern landmark?

From Quiz Oh! The Things You Can See!

Answer: South Newport, Georgia

This dream of grocer Agnes Harper came true in 1949. The church, equipped with stained glass windows imported from England, has been the backdrop for stunning wedding photos. It has hosted non-denominational services the third Sunday of every month. Only 15 feet long and 10 feet wide, the church can accommodate twelve parishioners and a pastor.

23. The largest city in which U.S. state was named for the wife of King George III?

From Quiz A Trivial Trip Across the U.S.A. Part 1

Answer: North Carolina

Settlers first arrived in what is now Mecklenburg County in North Carolina in the 1750s. The 22-year old Prince of Wales became King George III in October 1760 on the death of his grandfather, and a few months later he married Her Serene Highness Princess Charlotte of Mecklenburg. The growing population centre on the other side of the Atlantic was named "Charlotte Town" in her honor and it was incorporated as a town in 1768. Not that the future city was a hotbed of monarchists -- it was here that the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence was signed in 1775, one of the first such declarations that eventually led to the American War of Independence. The population of Charlotte boomed in the early part of the 19th century following the first discovery of gold in the United States. North Carolina was the country's largest producer of gold until the California Gold Rush of 1848. The city of Charlotte, home to more than 750,000 (2010 Census), is the largest in North Carolina and carries the nickname "The Queen City" in deference to its roots.

24. What historical site is closest to where Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland meet?

From Quiz Tri-Points, Eastern Edition

Answer: Harpers Ferry NHP

Harpers Ferry, West Virginia gained immortality with the 1859 raid of abolitionist John Brown. On October 16, Brown raided the arsenal at Harpers Ferry, seeking arms for a slave uprising. The raid was a failure; most of Brown's men were killed or captured, and Brown himself was executed.
