Your answers of Atlanta and Pittsburgh are both incorrect.     As for all the places I have been:   I have been to 49 of the 50 states on at least 2 separate occasions....and next summer I will visit that other one for a second time: Alaska.  I have been to every city in the US with a population of over 200K...except for Spokane and Huntsville Ala.   I have been to 368 of the 419 National Park Units.  I used to collect refrigerator magnets, but I quit a while back because it became unmanageable.

It has happened within just the last 10 years, but see the next post.

I actually looked it up after posting, and I would have never guessed that... I still think of "big" cities as being Northern and Eastern/Midwestern... I forget about the SunBelt.

Well...you really are living in the past.  Pre-air conditioning!! :lol: Of the 11  cities left to be named,  all but I would say   2 of them would be what could be called "Sun Belt" Cities;  i.e  neither in the Northeast or Midwest.    I would say that 1 is in the Northeast,   1 in the midwest and the rest southeast, southwest, or west.

I am going to persist with it a bit more.   Ten letters left:

 

A

F

G

M

Q

T

U

Y

Z

Further hint....only one of the letters left is a city that has a "Major league" sports team. (Think:  Ghoolie)    Plus, maybe another "half city"...you'll get it when that answer comes.   For another....think, President's middle name.

Check only on Austin.   

Zanesville would have been the right answer not too long ago and for decades before that, but, again, another of those big suburbs has come along and displaced Zanesville.

The big suburb gave me a hint. Mesa Arizona?

Can't think of a "Z" (or any of the others) although doesnt Las Vegas have a very large suburb?
