Test Your Geography Knowledge – Do You Know All 50 U.S. State Capitals?

If there’s one thing I did not excel at in grade school, it was geography — hey, I’m not ashamed to admit it!

I remember very distinctly having to memorize all of the states and their capitals when I was in the 5th grade. I also remember that I didn’t do so well on that test…

Luckily, being able to travel has certainly helped boost my geography knowledge. I guess it’s much easier to remember where things are if you get to experience them firsthand. Even still, knowing all 50 state capitals is quite a feat!

Only a true geography genius can get all 50 correct. Do you think you’re up for the challenge?
