Great Quiz! There are however some errors that you should fix. 1. You spelled Westminster as "Westminister" 2. The city of Wyoming is in Michigan, not the city of Michigan in Wyoming. 3. Where is Edison, New Jersey on this list?

Thanks, I fixed the first two. Edison was not included in the list I used; I think it's because it's a township rather than a town or city.

It's 'Passaic' not 'Passiac' for New Jersey #492

Can you enable recommended type-ins for this quiz. For example it won't accept NYC as an acceptable answer for New York.
