About This Quiz

Can we guess where you grew up based on how you answer the questions in this personality quiz?

If we've sparked some curiosity in you, then it's time for you to take this quiz now! A hometown is more than just a place where someone grew up. It's a place that holds memories and life experiences. Whether you have a dark or a happy past, your hometown has shaped you into the person you are today, and that's always something to be proud of!

One key difference in hometowns is the weather, as some towns are situated within hot, mild or freezing cold temperatures! And if you grew up shoveling your driveway and brushing snow off your car, you probably know what we're talking about. Hometowns are also unique because of the food they serve. Some of the food is more hearty, while other restaurants focus on trendy fusion flavors.
