Where am I? - United States Part 12

Updated: Apr 26, 2023

1. Did you know that the first English speaking government to ban the death penalty

was actually in the United States? This state was the first to ban it for all crimes

except treason in 1848 and under no circumstances a hundred years later (1963).

2. This state is home to world's first floating zip code and the only floating post office in the United States.

3. This state is home the world's first three tunnels connecting two different countries.

4. If you love Christmas, this state is home to the world's largest Christmas store

which is open to all but FOUR (or five on leap years) days a year. The building

itself spans over 320,000 sq. ft (almost 30,000 sq. m or 7.35 acres).

5. If you enjoy being around water then this state is for you, there are nowhere

in this state where you're less than 6 miles from a body of water. This state

has the highest percentage of its total area occupied by water (41.5%).

6. This state is also home to 150 lighthouses which is the most of any states.

7. Despite the United States bidding a record 22 times to host the

Summer Olympics, successfully hosting 8 times, this state's largest

city has never hosted it despite having a record of SEVEN bids.

8. This state is also home to the biggest stadium in the United States fitting more than

107,000 people with a record of over 115,000 people attending a game in 2013. This

stadium has had over 100,000 attending for over 300 consecutive games (45 years).

9. This state is also home to the world's longest freshwater

coastline which is approximately 3,288 miles (or 5,291.5 km).

10. Unsurprisingly this state was named by the local Native American word

meaning "Big Lake" which is fitting as it neighbors four of the five Great Lakes.

The correct answer was:

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful pictures and fun facts!

Check in next Friday and find out which state I'll do next.

Have a wonderful day!
