Are you thinking of planning a road trip across the U.S., perhaps you would like to consider taking a bit of a detour through one of these towns. The names alone should warrant a stop.
Real estate website Estately.com rounded up some of America’s most ridiculously named places, giving spots like Oregon Chicken, Alaska, Boring, and Satan’s Kingdom, Massachusetts the national recognition they deserve.
This map shows the oddest-named towns in each U.S. state, according to Esately.com.
It seems like some of these places are as quirky as their names suggest. The town website belonging to Chicken, Alaska, for instance, encourages tourists to “get the cluck over here!” The site for Boring, Oregon, promises readers the town is “an exciting place to call home!”
Estately.com also includes a list of town names in each state that didn’t top their list, but deserved mentioning nonetheless. I have to agree ― Zzyzx, California certainly has quite the ring to it.
