Just curious why the Great Lakes were excluded. Those states have coastlines as well.

The most annoying thing about this quiz is that Houston is literally only a few yards from being the biggest coastal city in Texas.

Because of its name, I had always assumed Portland, Oregon was on the coast. I was wrong.

Here's your fun trivia for the day then. It was named after Portland, ME in a coin flipping contest. :-)

If the coin had gone the other way we'd have 2 Bostons.

This is me living in Texas my whole life and just realizing that Houston does not technically touch the sea. Clear Lake (the body of water NASA is on) is, in fact, a lake and not connected to Galveston Bay.

I believe that Houston technically owns land on Burnet Bay, though I think it's a park and nobody lives there.

It'd be nice if all quizzes on this site used the same source for city populations. It's strange to see zoning bylaws the determinant of how big a city is rather than the actual population that considers themselves part of the city. Agglomerations seems to be a more realistic way of viewing populations of cities.
