This quiz is not ridiculous, as it makes me badly want to go to Liberal, KS, Steamboat Springs, CO and Show Low, AZ. Those three towns would not be that high on my travel priority list without this very quiz.

I've been to Show Low. If I remember correctly there was a casino and a ski resort not far away, but if you want a relaxing time in beautiful country where the wolves howl at night, it's a great place. We stayed at Greer, quiet, friendly, and at the "end of the highway" - literally.

Next generation of snow bird migration; people moved from the snow belt to Phoenix and Tucson for warmer climates, and now people retire from those cities for some place actually cooler. And many people like retiring to 'smaller' towns anyway. George Takei has a vacation home there.

I love all these quizzes like this. Got 205 my first try. Three of the ones I missed are in California, even though I'm currently living there. The one thing I notice that I think is wrong is that Warner-Robbins should be replaced by the larger adjacent city of Macon.

Feb 18, 2018
Okay, I looked into this. There shouldn't have been any errors since it was generated by a computer program. It seems that Warner Robins was bigger than Macon until Macon absorbed all of Bibb county. So the quiz isn't wrong, just out-dated. This will have to wait until the next time the quiz is updated.
+1
level 69
Mar 5, 2018
Thanks for Macon the time to address my Warnering that one city was Robins another of its rightful place on the quiz. You never know with cartographic data. To be pedantic, as far as I can tell, Warner Robins was still smaller than Macon at the time of the city-county merger, although the gap was closing. Then the Macon-Bibb County merger made Macon the much larger city once again. Which is worse, my puns, pedantry, or population obsession? Only time and the least brutal community of commenters on the internet will tell.

Why isn't Hilo, Hi. on here? It has well over 10,000 people (around 43,000) and is 342 km (212 mi.) from Honolulu. I can't see that there are any cities in between that are bigger than Hilo, either.

On the 200km quiz, it was omitted because of being a census-designated place (CDP) and not a city. I assume the same reasoning was applied here.

Loved this quiz and all the obscure towns it highlights. I do have one small beef, though. Ridgecrest in California is definitely smaller than AND within 100km of Victorville. Actual distance is about 90km, and the population is around 25,000 vs. over 100,000.
