About This Quiz

The United States of America is such a huge country that it has to be subdivided into many regions. And while those regions have their regions, the states enclosed within them also speak a lot about their region's culture.

For instance, the southeastern US region is a huge one. Comprised of 12 states, their region's characteristics have great commonalities but obvious differences as well. Influences, history and other factors are the reasons why such commonalities exist. But it's also quite impressive how each of the states in this distinct region has evolved on its own.

There are so many things to see and experience in this culture that sometimes, you don't know just where to start! That's why in this special quiz, we have chosen some of the capital cities, the largest cities in terms of land area and population and quaint cities that have colorful details in them.
