If I read it right I may have had a clue, but I read WORD city instead of WORLD city. I live in OR, I should have had a heads up.

Very easy, got it in like 2 seconds. Partly because I live an hour from Salem, too.

I got this one, but my first thought was Dover, name after Dover England. But I'm not sure I would call it a world city.
