About This Quiz

Bridges, statues, and dams, oh my! When it comes to landmarks, the United States is one country that is teeming with them. From California to New York, you could find a major landmark in almost every single state. From natural wonders to man-made creations, can you match the landmark to the state it's in?

The United States is the third largest country in the world, so you can be certain that you'd find tons of landmarks within its borders. The Statue of Liberty, one of the country's most popular landmarks, was built by Gustave Eiffel, the same builder of the Eiffel Tower, and gifted to the United States during President Cleveland's term. Speaking of presidents, there's another long list of U.S. landmarks that are dedicated to them; from the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial to Mount Rushmore, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln have their fair share of landmarks. While lots of work was put into these monuments, one can't forget about the wonder behind the natural landmarks. The Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, and Yellowstone National Park bring in millions of visitors each year.

Although the look and meaning behind many of these monuments might be instantly recognizable, can you pair them with their proper state? Would you find Golden Gate Bridge in New York or California? Is Seattle or Chicago home of the Space Needle? Let's put your knowledge to the test! Let's find out if you're nailing this U.S. landmarks quiz!
