USA - Cities Trivia Questions

1. In which state in the United States are these cities located: Fort Worth, Houston, and Dallas?

From Quiz
Cities in US States

Answer: Texas

Texas is a state in the South Central region of the United States. Texas is nicknamed the "Lone Star State" for its former status as an independent republic. Texas gets its name from the Caddo word táysha, which means "friends." Austin is the state capital. The total area of Texas is 695,662 km2 (268,596 sq mi). Texas became a state on December 29, 1845.

2. Which city has, at various times, depended upon its port for a major part of its economic vitality?

From Quiz Which Portland: Maine or Oregon?

Answer: Both

From the late 18th Century, the village of Portland, Maine, depended upon its harbour for both fishing and trade. Portland is the largest port in Maine. At one time, it was a principal ice-free harbour in winter for Canadian exports. Portland, Oregon, benefits from the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers which give it access to the Pacific Ocean. Portland was the principal port in the Pacific Northwest until 1890 when the railroad connected Seattle's deep-water port with the rest of the United States.

3. Arthur Miller's 1953 play "The Crucible" is set in which city?

From Quiz Which Salem: Massachusetts or Oregon?

Answer: Salem, Massachusetts

Miller's play depicts the trials for witchcraft which took place in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 and 1693. The play is not only historical but was also intended by the author as an allegory to the campaign of U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy and the House of Representatives Committee on Un-American Activities. Miller was questioned by HUAC and convicted of contempt of Congress for refusing to disclose who had attended meetings with him.

4. Which city was named after Captain George Vancouver?

From Quiz Which Vancouver: Washington or Canada?

Answer: Both B.C. and Washington

George Vancouver (1757-1798) served his lifetime in the British Royal Navy. He explored the Pacific Coast of the U.S. and Canada 1791-1795. Vancouver Island and Vancouver, the city, in British Columbia, are named after him, as is the city of Vancouver in Washington State. He sailed with Captain Cook and explored Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, as well.

5. Where is the Hell Gate Bridge located?

From Quiz Which Astoria: New York or Oregon?

Answer: Astoria, New York

The Hell Gate Bridge has also been known as the New York Connecting Railroad Bridge and The East River Arch Bridge. It was completed in 1916, after four years of construction, to connect Astoria with Randalls and Wards Islands in Manhattan across the East River. Traffic is entirely by rail.

6. With a population of less than 2,000, it's possible that Ninety Six has more palmettos than people. What state can you find the town of Ninety Six?

From Quiz US Towns With Numbers In Their Names

Answer: South Carolina

Established in the early 1700s, Ninety Six, South Carolina, was first known as "Jews Land." Some say it was 96 miles to the closest Cherokee settlement; some claim it was the number of creek crossings to Lexington. Others believe it's an interpretation of "nant-sych," a Welsh term meaning "dry gulch." The true origin may never be known.

7. Springfield is the number one town name in the United States. Which state has two Springfields, a city named Bayonne and a famous boardwalk?

From Quiz Let's Go to Springfield

Answer: New Jersey

There are towns named Springfield in Burlington County and Union County, New Jersey. The boardwalk in the summer resort town of Atlantic City has been the subject of songs and movies. There is also a third Springfield in New Jersey but it is a neighborhood in the city of Newark.

8. In which Washington state city is the Microsoft Corporation Headquarters located?

From Quiz Fun Trivia on U.S. Cities

In addition, Redmond is home to the Redmond Town Center, a large downtown retail center, which includes numerous shops, movie theaters, special events, and much more.

9. This "twin city" is found in Minnesota, Kansas, North Carolina, and Alabama. In which state is this wet Minneapolis right across the river from St. Paul?

From Quiz Multiple Metropolises

Answer: Minnesota

Minneapolis, Minnesota is in "the land of 10,000 lakes", henceforth making it very wet. Minneapolis, Minnesota sits right next to its "twin" St. Paul, and is well-known for the Mall of America and the Mississippi River.

10. Las Cruces (The Crosses): in what U.S. state will we find this city?

From Quiz U.S. Cities, Towns and Places

Answer: New Mexico

Las Cruces, New Mexico is known as "The City of the Crosses" because of its translation from the Spanish "The Crosses". No one is quite certain exactly where the city derived this name. Las Cruces was founded in 1849. Unlike many major cities, it has no clearly defined downtown business district. This is largely due to the fact that in the 1960s, much of the older parts of the city were razed in an effort to modernize the downtown area, with the end result being practically NO downtown at all! In February 2013, the mayor announced plans for a huge 700 acre city park, which would be nearly as large as New York's Central Park.
