Here Are 8 Fascinating Places In Arizona With The Weirdest Names
One glance at any map of Arizona and you’re bound to come across some might strange names. You’ll find towns named Nothing and Santa Claus or roads called Bucket of Blood or Easy Street. Even some of our natural places have some odd monikers. Today, we’re going to check out a few places that not only have strange names but also weird—or, in some cases, inappropriate—origins.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
