You are absolutely, positively, as correct as you could possibly be.

Congratulations on your heroic success, and would you please do the honour of asking the next question?

Several options:

Himring alone survived the flooding of Beleriand.

OR

Himring is the only one occupied by a son of Feanor (Maedhros), the other two were of the house of Fingolfin.

OR

Himring is the only one that wasn't founded at the prompting of dreams from Ulmo.

Nargothrond was originally inhabited by Dwarves wasn't it?

Or perhaps, Himring was a military site while Nargothrond and Gondolin were civilian cities as well.

Question

Not too sure on this one, but didn't Finrod enlist the help of Dwarves to build Nargothrond, while the other two were built by Elves?

Nargothrond was inhabited once more after it was sacked!...
Well, twice more actually, Glaurung too was there for some time.

oh wait someone already said that. sorry!

ok some guesses then:

-Nargothrond and Gondolin were hidden from melkor for a while, while himring wasnt?

-Nargothrond and Gondolin had only one proper way in, while himring had more?

both of these are guesses as i know virtually nothing about himring

Did the Dwarves of Nogrod and Belegost fight at Himring? I believe they were the allies of Maedhros? That would make it the only one where dwarves fought on the same side as the elves.

Gondolin was the only one that fell through inside treachery and not outside? Himring was betrayed by Ulfang etc. and Nargothrond was destroyed by Glaurung, but not through treachery. Gondolin was betrayed by Maeglin, it's future ruler.

The odd place out is Lorien because all of the others were somehow touched by evil at one time.

Avathar --> Morgoth/Ungoliant
Mordor --> Sauron
Sirion --> Feanor's sons (evil enough!)
