Got 9. Should have gotten Youngstown...spaced. Guessed Springfield because I think each state has to have a Springfield. At least it seems that way.

The "greater Cincinnati airport" is in Northern Kentucky. Maybe that's where you got confused.

Looks to me as if Ohioans generally try to give West Virginia as wide a berth as possible. At least that's what I can glean by looking at the map... and knowing what I know about West Virginia.

I couldn't figure out how a town with a population around 12,000 (Salem) made this list since it doesn't seem to have a "metro" area. I finally discovered there is a list out there at hometownlocator.com that includes micropolitans, which seems to take the populations from a bunch of towns within a county area to come up with a larger population for the area. Maybe the information for the quiz should say it includes metro and micropolitan areas vs. city proper.

If you look at city proper, Salem is actually like the 90th largest city in Ohio. It just ends up on this list because all of Cuyahoga County is in Cleveland's metro area, all of Summit County is in Akron's metro area, all of Franklin County is in Columbus's metro area, all of Southwest Ohio is in Cincinnati's or Dayton's metro areas, and Bowling Green is in Toledo's metro area. Salem just makes the list because it falls on the other side of the county line from Mahoning County where Youngstown is.
