Somehow I managed to misspell Erie, and though I've been to Rochester I didn't know it was that close to any of the great lakes. Other than those the only one I missed that I would have been able to guess was Green Bay so I don't feel too bad about quitting three minutes early.

I assumed as much, given it's on the quiz. I just didn't know it. I was there for a convention and barely left the hotel.

To be honest, downtown Rochester isn't within a 3-hour walk of the lake. Some of the suburbs are on the shore, but the city is situated on the falls.

London isn't on the lakes at all! 45 minute drive to Erie or Huron.

Ontario. But still not on any of the lakes. It's about halfway between lakes Erie and Huron.

If it's supposed to be the biggest cities and by city proper then Mississauga should be on there. Oshawa and Oakville might be in there as well

It's not, otherwise there would be many more suburbs here.

thanks for accepting Saginaw for Bay City. I thought I had the correct map location for that city. I didn't know two of the Canadian cities and one US city on the upper peninsula of Michigan. I think I have been to most of the cities shown on this map.

We need more Canadians to take this quiz. The average score is 11, which marks the point in the list of % correct answers after which all Canadian cities other than Toronto appear.

I'd say you should have a minimum population of 50,000 to qualify. I've never heard of those 4 little Michigan towns. And I have lived near and driven around all 5 of these lakes my entire life.
