Mike--and the answer is:Jacksonville, Florida is the largest city in area in the contiguous 48 states at 758 square miles. Jacksonville includes all of Duval County, Florida with the exception of the beach communities (Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach and Jacksonville Beach) and Baldwin.

But Sitka, Alaska is the largest city in area in all of the United States. Sitka includes a whopping 2874 square miles of incorporated area. The city is larger than the state of Delaware! Officially known as the "City and Borough of Sitka," the city consolidated the City of Sitka Borough in 2000 to be the country's largest city.
Sitka displaced Juneau, Alaska as the largest city upon the 2000 incorporation. Juneau is 2717 square miles and was formed through incorporation of the borough and city in 1970.
Sitka is a perfect example of an "overbounded" city, which refers to a city that has boundaries that extend far beyond its developed area (certainly the glaciers and ice fields in the city won't be developed soon.)

One day padawan your useless knowledge may be as great as mine...teg

Minneapolis or Houston? Looks like I see a dome in the background.

Sitka, Alaska is the largest in the U.S. and Jacksonville, FL is the largest in the lower 48, which is where your picture is from...next question.

Mike, you almost got me this time. Then I remembered my geography. Could the answer be Sitka, Alaska?

Jacksonville, Florida comes to mind...

Good job, guys. I was looking for Jacksonville, since EVERYTHING in Alaska is bigger, but we'll take Sitka too..
