Geez, these are hard. I can't even think of guesses. I'll let someone better try out my own.

Three very historic cities:

City 1









City 2

1. Sacramento, CA?
2. Lexington, KY?
3. Portland, ME?

All three are complete shots in the dark, I'm sorry to say.

None of the guesses for mine have been right so far. Sacramento and Lexington were the farthest from the mark, though. You'll notice that the architecture in each city is distinctly colonial or "Old World."

Manchester, NH actually doesn't have much surviving colonial architecture because the city itself didn't really develop until the Industrial Revolution. Burlington is kind of close for City 2, although this city is significantly larger. And while City 3 looks very "New England," I will tell you that it actually isn't in one of the New England states. Its colonial structures have been well-preserved in part because the city has not developed very rapidly.

Also, one of the cities isn't in the United States - but still in North America.

Nope; actually it has a population of about 35,000.
