Quiz Description

As perhaps some of you did, I wrote out a whole long list of 11-letter US city names while brainstorming answers for LL86 MD5 Q1 before hitting upon the right answer at #17. I figured I might as well make a quiz about the rest of the list.

Every answer on this quiz is an American city with eleven letters in its name. If your answer doesn't have eleven letters, it's not the right answer. State names not required, but every question is pinned to a specific state.


SPOILER: Here's the recap
