Great quiz!

The "c" is missing from "Hutchinson" (Kansas).

Fun fact, Olympia Washington is the only state capitol that does not break it's state's top 20 biggest cities!

Also, it took me so long to figure out why Winston-Salem was guessed more than Charlotte, but I'm assuming it's because "Salem" is accepted as a type-in? Interesting quiz! I got all 20 of the cities from my state (North Carolina).

I thought I did pretty decent, but apparently got just below the average. I missed some pretty obvious ones, like Oakland California, Lexington Kentucky, Spokane Washington, Mobile Alabama, St. Petersburg Florida, and Boulder Colorado! Can't believe I forgot those.

Yes and I live in Washington and Olympia only has about 55k people. It's not even the biggest city in its county anymore. Lacey is with about 60k

If you are going to count townships like Upper Darby in Pennsylvania, you should note that. Townships are not the same as a city.

I have no clue what a township is I even tried googling it. I live in Washington and we have cities, towns, CDPs, and counties only

Great quiz! However, a few gripes... (mostly nitpicks but whatever) (961/1000)

Huthinson, KS should really be corrected to Hutchinson.

"Mililani" should be accepted for both Mililani Town and Mililani Mauka.

"Essex" should be accepted for "Essex Junction".

If the "city" suffix is omitted for some cities for it to be accepted, then all should be have that omission. For example: St. Albans City, VT; Pearl City, HI; etc.

"Mount Pleasant" should be accepted for Mount Pleasant, SC; not just "Mt Pleasant"
