Yeah, half the "attractions" from the US is quite a limited world-view. I'd suggest either making an only-US test, or a world test. If all the attractions in the US where notable outside it, it wouldn't be that much of a problem. But imagine a test asking for an aquarium in Sao Pablo, a beach in Salvador de Bahia, and the location of the Brazilian constitution.

Jsut for the record: the USS Constitution is a ship, not the actual Constitution (which would be in the National Archive in Washington DC)

No one cares how much you hate the rest of the world, just learn about it. And represent it in the quiz. Yeesh. (By the way, America was hardly represented - only the United States.)

I thought exactly same thing but for Americans Coke museum is such an important tourist location that all the greatest attractions in the 2000 year old culture cant match it.

"America" is shorthand in English (and German, Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Italian, French, Arabic, and Japanese) for the United States of America and its inhabitants, in the same way Russia is shorthand for the Russian Federation, Mexico short for the United States of Mexico, etc. Just because Spanish (and other language) speakers insist that "America" or its variants refer to the continent does not mean speakers of other languages need to adhere to such linguistic prescriptivism.
+7
Level 52

I may disagree, I'm French and it is clear that America is a language abuse when you want to mean the USA. We use generally America or Americas for the continent(s) (depending if you consider one piece of lands or two "economical" blocks like Fifa does) and the US for the USA. The French Academy is pretty clear on that subject.

Nov 8, 2018
@stankyC The continent was named first, way before your country even existed. The fact that many people have assimilated the usage the US coopted doesn't make it right. Also, the Mexico and Russia examples are false analogies. A more apt one would be a comparison with the UK (which is not Great Britain, just as the US is not America, but both are located in those respective places).
+4
Level 66
Nov 9, 2018
@stankyC: In German, the country is predominantly referred to as "USA" and its institutions, e.g., as "US troups" (both shorter than referring to America(n)!). But I agree that its inhabitants are typically referred to as "Amerikaner/Americans", presumably because people are just too lazy to specify the additional syllables "US-Americans". Nevertheless, for the sake of clarity and because America always refers first to the continent: get a proper demonym for the USA! :-D

America is the United States, in virtually every country and language in the world. It's no more an abuse of language than calling the French Republic "France." The Spanish word for American, most often referring to citizens of the United States, is "Americano."

No complaints that people in the U.S.A. from the Orient (Latin for East) have claimed Asia all for themselves? That makes absolutely zero sense.

Still extremely America-centric, as is nearly every quiz on this website. If every other city in the answers is from one country each, I don't understand why America is special enough to have 7 and to previously have had 12. If an Australian made this quiz for example and had 12 answers being Australian cities, no non-Australian players would do well so its a lot harder for non-Americans such as myself to participate on this website.

Surely an aquarium in Chicago is not as important than e.g. Great Pyramids of Giza, Opera House in Sydney, Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul, Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai, Grand Palace in Bangkok?

I guess that depends if you're a fish or not.

And the pyramids and the opera house aren't in America, so they're not really that important anyways

Level 55
Jan 23, 2017
I know this is an American site and I have no problem with US-centric quizzes if they're described as such so you know what you're taking, but 50% of the answers are in the US and they're pretty lame ones at that is a bit daft in my opinion when you would assume this quiz is going to be about global cities.
This should just be made into a USA tourist attraction quiz (after all you're already half way there!) and then just make another one for true international tourist attractions with just the main, true international destinations from the USA in it.

Half of the cities are located in USA. Again and again I find those tests being created in a way that will show how smart americans are because someone doesn't know where coke museum is. And I bet coke museum is actually a better tourism attraction than pyramids or temples in Tokyo, Marina Bay in Singapore or concentration camps in Auchwitz. Unfortunately Americans wouldn't be able to guess anything that's not in major US city.

List of tourist attractions, where you can find ignorant American tourists. Who else but Americans would pick Checkpoint charlie as place to go in Berlin or TianAnMen square in Beijing, where was no "Western media created" -massacre. One who studies the truth open minded will find that there was 11 people died in an accident in TianAnMen square run over by AFV accidentally. Most casualties happened, when criminals armed by "someone" opened fire against soldiers middle of the night West from TianAnMen square and soldiers responded to fire. Most victims, few hundred at most, were mainly these armed criminals and soldiers and some bystanders. Most protesters had already left the square the day before. There were only some students from countryside, who didn't have dormitory to go to sleep or didn't afford to go to hotel and were camping on the square. Pictures west have missed - the disemboweled soldiers burnt and hanged on bridges. These were acts of criminals, not peaceful protesters.
