This Map Has The Quirkiest & Funniest Town Names Of US

Americans are known to name their towns in a unique way. For example, they name it after people, a former place of living, a city landmark or some local geographical feature. There are also town names that are way too bold and bizarre and will make you go ‘What were they thinking!’

And exploring America is undoubtedly full of fun moments, but it proves to be funnier when you’re using the map created by US-based real estate firm ‘Estately’. The people at Estately came up with a map last year having "Most Oddly-Named Towns in Each U.S. State" all at one place.

It’s a great idea to take all your fun-loving (or rather pun-loving friends) along with you and cruise every town and city of US. Most importantly, don’t miss stopping by the town signboard and do click pictures with them.

Furthermore, read on here to find out other bizarre town names for every US state including the ones that aren’t on the map.
