Here Are 21 Silly Street Names In Pennsylvania That Will Leave You Baffled
Pennsylvania has some awesomely weird town names (Intercourse, Blue Ball, Virginville…) but we’re pretty darn good at naming streets as well.
We went on the hunt for some of the best streets in PA and found hundreds of list-worthy names; here are 21 of our favorites. Some just make us giggle, some have strong roots in history…and a few could probably be used as a “pronunciation test” for true Pennsylvanians!
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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
