If you're thinking of visiting Seattle, save your money. Hotels are like $250 a night, traffic is brutal, and there's nothing to see.

Steve Miller went from Phoenix, Arizona to Tacoma and U-turned straight for Philadelphia, Atlanta and L.A. instead of continuing to Seattle.

It's a great city to live in (if you can afford it). Unfortunately, the population has increased by 22% since 2010 which has made everything crowded and expensive. Thanks a lot Amazon.

I visited a couple friends there in 2001. One of them was attending DigiPen and toured me around the school and we went over to Nintendo of America as well and GameWorks downtown. I saw Pike's Place Market and the original Starbucks with the other friend and went to some nightclubs and the park with the Space Needle. I enjoyed the moody atmospherics of constant overcast drizzling which matched my mindset at the time and complimented the music I was listening to then. Wasn't a bad weekend. I don't remember what I spent on hotels but I think I got something through Priceline back when the only option was still to name your own price and I'm sure it was much less than $250. Probably closer to 35 or 40 I rarely paid more than that for hotels those days.

I was in Seattle about three weeks ago and enjoyed the visit but the traffic in the downtown area was horrendous! There also seemed to be a huge amount of long term construction work going on which was causing chaos. Hopefully it will all be sorted eventually but it may take a while.

I checked the source, and places 15-21 are occupied by Seattle, Santa Ana-Anaheim-Irvine, Flagstaff, Philadelphia, San Jose, Tampa and Dallas. I suspect the Anaheim bracket was mostly Disneyland visitors.

Flagstaff is probably because of the Grand Canyon.

"the most international visitors from overseas." So it doesn't count visitors from Canada or Mexico?

As a non-american, I am at a disadvantage in most US geography quizzes. Here I easily scored 100% on my first try with few wrong guesses ;)

Just had to think about where my friends usually travel in the US...

You should not have left some cities filled in. The fun of these quizzes is being hard.

I agree - leaving those blank would've made this quiz more fun. Plus, if people can get Orlando because of Disneyworld, they can get Anaheim for Disneyland.

Orlando is much more well known than Anaheim and Disney World is much more well known than Disney Land

Agree completely. I have never appreciated being given the answers for any reason. If it belongs on the quiz then I deserve the chance to figure it out.

Yeah, it's very annoying when they fill in Cologne-Dusseldorf and the Ruhr on city quizzes as well.
