Growing up, one of my favourites had to be Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. I also love the name of Battle Creek, Michigan. Interestingly enough, I only learned of these two towns thanks to my childhood fascination with professional wrestling. As I continue to travel the world, visiting places like The City of Angels (Los Angeles) and the East Capital (Tokyo), I am constantly on the search for more interesting names.
As I have done in the past, I turned to the Twitter community to see if they had any neat towns or cities to share. Can they top Battle Creek? How about Crotch Lake, Ontario?
