Where am I? - United States Part 50

Updated: Nov 18, 2023

1. Have you ever wondered where is the smallest waterfall in the United States and possibly the world? At 16 ft (5 m) tall, it can be found in this state.

2. While most states have one capital city, this state had the unique distinction of having two capital cities for over 170 years including, the first 99 years that it became a state.

3. Another unique distinction is this state is home to a botanical garden that is also a dinosaur park.

4. Publishing since 1764, this state's capital city is home to the

oldest continuously published newspaper in the United States.

5. This state is home to not only the first dictionary in the United States but also the first phonebook. Funnily enough the latter was just a sheet of paper containing 50 names and no phone numbers.

6. Spanning across 19 acres this state is home to the largest maritime museum in the country.

7. In this museum resides the world's oldest surviving merchant vessel, built in 1841.

This ship is also the only surviving wooden whale ship from that time period in the world.

8. Running since 1846, this state is home to the oldest

continuously operated amusement park in the United States.

9. If that's not enough this state is also home to a multi-level go-kart racetrack.

At 80,000 sq. ft (7,400 sq. m) it is also one of the world's largest indoor karting racetrack,

10. If you prefer lower paced activities then you'll enjoy knowing that this state's capital city is home to the oldest continuously operated public art museum doing so since 1844.

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!


Now that I've covered all 50 states, time to explore Europe!

*Don't worry I'll be back with photo guides about various places around the world*
