    Need data feed US Cities and States
    Does anybody know where I can get a list of all (or most) U.S. Cities, in typical text datafeed format also categorized by state? I would imagine that if anything like this is available somewhere, it would include all sorts of other data fields, but all I need is cities/states.

    Try this one: State Trivia

    State Trivia
    Displays trivia facts about any of the 50 states when selected from the pulldown menu. Facts include state capital, date admitted into the union, state flower, and state bird. The script could be modified to display details about products you sell, members in a club, etc.....

    I can get a list of all (or most) U.S. Cities, in typical text datafeed format also categorized by state?
    Here is a example of the script:
    state[0] = "Alabama"
    capital[0] = "Montgomery"
    date[0] = "December 14, 1819"
    flower[0] = "Camellia"
    bird[0] = "Yellowhammer"
    Nickname[0] = "Heart of Dixie"
    .
    .
    .

    state[26] = "Nebraska"
    capital[26] = "Lincoln"
    date[26] = "March 1, 1867"
    flower[26] = "Goldenrod"
    bird[26] = "Western Meadowlark"
    Nickname[26] = "The Cornhusker State"
    .
    .
    .
    state[49] = "Wyoming"
    capital[49] = "Cheyenne"
    date[49] = "July 10, 1890"
    flower[49] = "Indian Paintbrush"
    bird[49] = "Meadowlark"
    Nickname[49] = "The Equality State"
    As you can see, it's easy to make a text datafeed out of it.

    Try the "places" file here. A lot of extraneous info, but should be a good start.

    Go checkout Sitepoint (content sales). and DigitalPoint marketplace as well. I always see databases for sale on a variety of topics (i.e., states, business, cities, etc).

    They're usually pretty cheap too. As for the quality, I have no idea.

    just another option. Good luck!
