All Counties of the United States by Proximity

When you name a county (or equivalent) of a U.S. State, all counties within 100km will also be filled in.
Caution: the map is large in size, and with 3k+ answers, the page WILL BE SLOW
Distance here is the centre-centre distance using the latitude/longitude geographical centres provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. (This means for a big county, its borders may not get activated)

Another amazing quiz using this amazing template! I was puzzled that none of the Nevada or Arizona answers illuminated any neighbors, but then I read your instructions about your using centre-to-centre distances.

Yes, there was no reasonable way (without a lot more complex coding and modelling) to create a better proximity system. Since the Bureau releases these geographical centres, it’s all I really have to go on.

Tippecanoe hahahah! im sure there are more funny names but didnt read them all. As someone that is proud/happy to get even more than 5 STATES, getting 2013 is not bad. I mainly typed a few states, colors, 3 presidents, some english towns and names.

Funnily enoguh, almost the enitre right side of the map has turned green and hardly anything on the left side. I like proximity quizes, but these are a bit too much to revise!!
