Is it really that common to misspell "Fort Worth"? I've been seeing this a lot lately.
Isn't Fort Worth like a suburb of Dallas?

Thats about all I can think of for now.
Just wow. The biggest surprise was Muncie as Indiana's second city. It's barely 70,000 people and only a college town, and you're putting it ahead of Evansville, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Bloomington? Interesting choice but I don't see why.

Hattiesburg is much the same way, a small college town, and you're putting it ahead of Columbus, Natchez, Gulfport, and Biloxi?

Daytona Beach in front of Orlando, Tampa, and Jacksonville?

Fort Worth is it's own city. Not a suburb.

It's Springfield. As someone from the Metro East, I can tell you that no one there is ever thinking of Peoria or Rockford. The only two cities in all of Illinois that the whole state looks to are Chicago and Springfield.

I do see what he's saying. The Metro East is the largest urban area in Illinois outside of Chicago, and this state does love grouping its cities together. Examples include Bloomington-Normal, Urbana-Champaign, and the Quad Cities.

The largest city there is Belleville, btw. It has around 45,000 people.

Aurora is apart of Chicagoland, so it's out, and Champaign and Urbana are two separate cities. As for St. Louis and the Metro East, East St. Louis is a hell hole and not even close to being the largest city in the Illinois suburbs of St. Louis. Belleville, the city on top of the hill overlooking E STL, is almost twice its size.

Yes, I'm aware, just poking fun at the Fort Worth homers.

I don't necessarily go for the obvious. Thats boring.

I think Muncie is probably more well known than Ft Wayne orSouth Bend. Muncie is one of those places that you just say the name Muncie and everybody knows its in Indiana. The only city might be more well known than Muncie would be Terre Haute. But Muncie is up and coming. It's one of the best kept secrets in the whole of Indiana.

For Mississippi's 2nd city I was torn between Biloxi, Hattiesburg, Tupelo and Natchez. I chose Hattieburg because it's the most vibrant and it feels like something exciting is going on.

Daytona Beach is just about the best beach in the United States. Every beach I ever been to pales to Daytona Beach, in my opinion.

I think Worcester is MA's second city. It's a hub of medical and educational institutions, it's centrally located (it's a common meeting place for statewide events), and it's more economically sound than Springfield. The case could be made for either, but I vote Worcester.
