So I got Tyler (I remember reading it was the Rose Capital of the World or something like that) and Cary (because there is an audio company by the same name). But I somehow missed Reno, Akron, and Flint.

For some reason it shows 'Waco' twice on my quiz...I got credit for it twice anyways...I think one of them is supposed to be Tyler.
