For a non- Californian, I think 16 out of 18 is a pretty good score

I grew up in the Bay Area, so easy for me. Non-Californians who do well should be proud.

I lived in the Bay area, though not for very long, and feel like I should have done better.

I’m from Nottingham and have never travelled east of NYC, so I think I just lucked out!

Got 16 by knowing surprisingly many Los Angeles suburbs and pinning the rest on Bay Area.

I have no idea how I got 13/18 when I've never been to California. The only ones I knew were Malibu, Oakland, and San Jose. I must have just gotten very lucky!

Fun quiz and idea. Maybe make a second one with harder cities?

As an LA native of 29 years; thanks for the easy points. I can definitely see how non-Californians might struggle though. Also, I never heard of Sausalito, but I just knew it wasn't LA.

Too California-centric. You could have included cities from Hudson's Bay, Halong Bay, Bay of Bengal, etc.

Since this is a California quiz your suggestions would have been too weird. I think there is a quiz that does what you suggested somewhere on jetpunk though.

Great quiz, easy 100% for any Californian like me. It would also be cool to have a version of this quiz where the cities change every time, pulling randomly from a pool of all San Francisco and Los Angeles suburbs. I'd do it myself, but I don't know how.

Oakland is about as much a suburb as St. Petersburg or St. Paul or Fort Worth or Tacoma.

You’re saying that Oakland is as much a suburb as the other obvious suburbs in this list. I totally agree, they’re all suburbs!

The description was asking whether the cities were suburbs of LA or part of the Bay Area. There is no city called "Bay Area" so they couldn't be suburbs of it.

I now need to plan two vacations to California to visit all of these suburbs and stone for my terrible score on this quiz.

I actively try not to care about California and I got 19/20. It's amazing how much of a stranglehold California has on the tech and entertainment industries.

I don't know how I got Santa Monica wrong.
