Went to look at the source data, since I was surprised Sun City wasn't on here (only 37k residents, smaller than I thought) and noticed there's a CDP called Willow Canyon with a population of... 1.

Should be named "guess all of Phoenix's suburbs."

Anyways, 100 percent, as I live outside of Phoenix.

Surprised that Prescott didn't make the cut. At 40,000+ it's just a little too small.

We visited our daughter several times when she lived in Phoenix but I still never heard of half of those cities in Maricopa County.

I live in Arizona but it still took me a little while to get them all. Fun quiz but has to be awfully hard if you're not from here.

I think that their demonym should be Arizonian Phoenix. That would just be such an awesome way to introduce oneself. “Hello, I am an Arizonan Phoenix! Yes, our university does suck, but our town has such a rad name.”

Let me get this straight. Most of the big cities in Arizona are in Maricopa County, but there's a city that's actually called Maricopa, and it's not in Maricopa County?

I thought Prescott is bigger than Prescott Valley, no? (Either one is a beautiful drive from Phoenix...)

Prescott is kind of hemmed in by geography whereas Prescott Valley and Chino Valley are more flat land and can just sprawl and sprawl.

Prescott Valley grew so much those last years that it did pass Prescott recently.

That's kind of a curveball for this quiz purposes though, considering the location, I wondered if there was some typo and I guessed it seconds away from triple zero.

its stretching the definition of city. I know of villages nearly as big as some of these.

The difference between a city and a town is not its size. Though it varies by state, in general it's whether or not the... place... is incorporated as a city. The smallest 'city' in Arizona is Tombstone, with a massive population of ~1400, where the largest 'town' is Maricopa with almost 210,000. I think I remember Arizona considering a requirement that any place applying for City status had to have 3000+ residents, but I don't know if that passed.
