Travel trivia: The American South

Posted on February 19th, 2011 by Laura Byrne Paquet in Travel Trivia

Part of the Everglades National Park, Cape Sable in what state is the southernmost point on the U.S. mainland?

  • California
  • Florida
  • Hawaii
  • Texas

Think you know the answer? Send it to me as a comment at the bottom of this post (one answer per contestant, please!). At the end of the week, I’ll draw one name from among all the people who answered correctly, and that person will receive this week’s prize: a brushed metal key chain donated by Tourisme Québec.

Come back to Facing the Street tomorrow for another travel trivia question and another chance to win a prize. And if you can’t wait until then for your trivia fix, check out my husband Paul’s trivia site, (He provided this question, BTW.)

This contest closes at 5:00pm EST on Friday, February 25, 2011.

    Cape Sable is in Florida. But I don’t think there are any sable herds there.
