Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. We start out on the east coast of the USA at this harbor, which features the National Aquarium. Where is it?

Answer: Baltimore Inner Harbor

Located at the mouth of Jones Falls, the Inner Harbor is a landmark of Baltimore City in Maryland. There are many attractions to see in the area, including the National Aquarium, Port Discovery Children's Museum, the American Visionary Art Museum, the Maryland Science Center, and the Baltimore Museum of Industry.

Historic ships may be found floating along the harbor, including the USS Constellation, the only ship from the Civil War era that is still afloat.
2. We move to the nation's capital, where we behold this monument to what U.S. president?

Answer: George Washington

The Washington Monument is an obelisk, though it is affectionately known to many a school child as "The Big Pencil". Situated on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., the monument was constructed of marble and granite to honor the nation's first president and commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, George Washington.

Other presidential monuments worth visiting in D.C. include the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial and the FDR Memorial.
3. Now it's time for a relaxing beach vacation. What popular beach city hosts the East Coast Surfing Championships and is home to Regent University?

Answer: Virginia Beach

Virginia Beach is the most populous city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It boasts many miles of beach lined with hotels, restaurant, and attractions. The "Guinness Book of World Records" says it has the longest pleasure beach in the world. The city is home to several parks, including the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and Red Wing Park, which features the Miyazaki Japanese Garden.
4. No, we didn't just transport ourselves to Greece. We're still in the United States. In what U.S. city can you find this full-scale replica of the Parthenon?

Answer: Nashville

Designed by Confederate veteran William Crawford Smith, this full-scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens is nestled in Centennial Park in Nashville, Tennessee. An art museum greets visitors inside. It boasts numerous paintings as well as plaster replicas of the Parthenon Marbles, which are direct casts of the original sculptures. Nashville was already nicknamed "The Athens of the South" before this building was erected as the centerpiece of the 1897 Centennial Exposition.
5. In which U.S. "cow town" can you watch long-horn cattle herded through the streets daily? If it's a Saturday, you can also catch Pawnee Bill's Wild West show.

Answer: Fort Worth

The Fort Worth Stockyards historic district is located in Fort Worth, Texas. Twice a day, weather permitting, cowhands drive a herd of Texas longhorns down East Exchange Avenue. You can also visit the world's largest honky tonk, Billy Bob's, for live music, food, and dancing.

The Grapevine Vintage railroad runs between Fort Worth and the city of Grapevine, which is known as "The Christmas Capital of Texas."
6. Outside of which city, which features the Alamo, can you explore the Natural Bridge Caverns?

Answer: San Antonio

San Antonio is home to the River Walk, the Alamo, several missions, and numerous museums. Outside the city, you can visit the Natural Bridge Caverns before heading over to a drive-thru wildlife safari park called Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch. The caverns were discovered by students from St. Mary's University in 1960.
7. This meteor crater is located about 37 miles east of Flagstaff. Who owns it?

Answer: It's privately owned

Privately owned by the Barringer family, which charges admission to the site, the meteor crater is located 18 miles west of Winslow, Arizona and 37 miles east of Flagstaff, Arizona. American settlers discovered the crater in the 19th century and initially named it Canyon Diablo crater. Daniel M. Barringer's mining company, the Standard Iron Company, staked a mining claim to the land in 1903 and received a land patent around the center of the crater.

The Standard Iron Company then conducted research on the crater's origins and concluded it was caused by an impact, a theory met with some skepticism until, in 1960, Eugene Merle Shoemaker confirmed the hypothesis.

The meteor impact left a crater 0.737 miles in diameter.
8. The Grand Canyon is a popular tourist attraction today. Which U.S. President established the Grand Canyon Game Preserve in 1906?

Answer: Theodore Roosevelt

Theodore Roosevelt was an avid conservationist. With members of his conservation group, the Boone and Crockett Club, he formed the National Parks Association, helped to get the Antiquities Act of 1906 through Congress, and was granted the power to create national monuments.

He established the Grand Canyon Game Preserve in 1906. However, for many years, land holders and mining claim holders resisted efforts to reclassify the Grand Canyon as a national park. Grand Canyon National Park was not finally established until 1919 by an act of Congress, which was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson. Today, the park is 1,904 square miles and has over 5 million visitors each year.
9. A street corner in Winslow, Arizona, may seem an uneventful site, and yet scores of people stop to take photographs of themselves on this street corner every year, all because of a song by what American rock band?

Answer: Eagles

In "Take it Easy," the Eagles sing:

"Well I'm a standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona
Such a fine sight to see
It's a girl my lord in a flatbed
Ford slowin' down to take a look at me."

In 1999, Standin' On the Corner public park was opened in Winslow, Arizona to commemorate the song. The park features a two-story mural, a bronze, life-size statue of a man standing on a corner and holding a guitar, and a flatbed Ford. The stop is just off of historic Route 66.
10. And now it's back on the road. In which state was this rainy-day photo of The Gateway Arch snapped?

Answer: Missouri

This 630-foot monument, the world's tallest arch, and the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere, is located in St. Louis, Missouri. It was initially built as a monument to westward expansion and was designed in 1947 by the Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen, though construction did not begin until 1963. The arch features an underground visitor's center, a museum on westward expansion, and a tram that will take you to an observation area.
