It's good to update my knowledge of my home state. Still missed two. Bit of a shame that the capital didn't make the cut in 2012.

Complete opposite end of the state, too. Vancouver, WA is across the border from Portland, OR.

It's a big pain trying to get Google Map directions from Seattle to Vancouver because it's about equally likely to give you either one.

Oh, drat. I was hoping this was a quiz on the biggest cities in the District of Columbia. I was all set to ace that one...

I got Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma and Redmond (Nintendo/Microsoft HQ)... should have gotten Bellevue, that's where my hotel was on my one and only trip to the state.

No Olympia? No SeaTac?

Nope. Olympia isn't the smallest state capital, but I don't think there are any that are lower on their state's population list. And SeaTac is just a small slice of of the I-5 corridor that happens to have an international airport in it.

SeaTac isn't really a city I think? I'm not entirely sure if it is or not, but in any case hardly any people live there, it's mostly just the airport. I was surprised that there was no Olympia too, thought the population was over 50k but I guess not!

Nope, SeaTac is a city now. Sad they couldn't have come up with a better name.

The curse of being from Washington, couldn't think of all the big cities because all the names of little towns kept popping into my head. Of course, I haven't lived there in years, and it was eastern and central, at that.

It's hard to believe there are more people in Marysville than Olympia but Google says that Olympia's population is only 48,000+

The quiz is really out of date. Since several of the cities in Washington State have passed others. Here is one I found on google but it isn't listed on jet punk yet it is a jet punk quiz. https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/313201/wa-state-25-largest-cities Wonder why I can't find it on jet punk when I run a search. Maybe update this quiz. Seattle, Kent, Federal Way and other cities have jumped others or grown.

I thought sure the naval base would put Bremerton on here, but after looking it up I see it only has around 40,000.
