Name that Flyover city — October 28, 2019

Here we are again! How did you do?

Let’s review the questions:

  1. Congress officially recognized a street in this city as “Home of the Blues.”
  2. The song “Happy Birthday” was written by two sisters in this city.
  3. This city has more free major tourist attractions than any city in the country (outside Washington, DC).

And now the answers:

  1. Memphis, TN—In 1977, Congress bestowed that honor on Beale Street in Memphis. It’s where every blues icon from Louis Armstrong to B.B. King has performed.
  2. Louisville, KY–The composer of “Happy Birthday” was Mildred J. Hill (1859-1916). Her younger sister, Patty S. Hill (1868-1946), wrote the words. No one would guess that such a simple song would cause one of the most hotly debated copyright issues in the U.S.
  3. St. Louis, MO—IN St. Louis, visitors pay nothing to visit the art museum, the history museum, the science center and the zoo.
