As you know, lots of places in the United States are named after places in England. And often, those places are also twinned with their English namesake.
But not always. Here’s a list of places in the United States named after one place in England but twinned with another:
- Birmingham, Alabama (twinned with Liverpool in Merseyside)
- Cambridge, Massachusetts (twinned with Southwark in London)
- Plymouth, Massachusetts (twinned with Exeter in Devon)
I find lists with unwieldy yet necessarily long titles rather compelling, especially when the list itself is short.
