Utah Towns That Sound A Lot Cooler

...Than They Probably Are In Real Life

Angel's Grove
Bonanza
Christmas City
Devil's Slide
Dragon (Trogdor!!1!)
Eggnog (It's now a goal of mine to visit here and Christmas City on the same day.)
Emerald Isle
Gooseberry
Koosharem (Say it out loud. Do it. Isn't that great?)
Lark
Little Bonanza
Mexican Hat (Dance)
Moonlight
Oasis (I hear this place is going to be bigger than the Beatles!)
Paradise
Pickleville (Hee!)
Rainbow
Shivwits (See: Koosharem)
Thermo
Unicorn Towne (I may be making this one up, but the rest are totally real.)
Wheatgrass

And just to put things in perspective, here are some Utah locations that very aptly describe what they're like in real life (or so I imagine).

Bone Valley
Coal City
Coyote
Desert Mound
Dry Fork
Fish Springs
Little Water
Mound City
Old Limber Pine
Pigeon
Standardville

Standardville? For real? Way to really promote yourselves, guys. When I name a city, it's going to be called Awesomeville.

There's a town in Oregon called Boring. It is aptly named.

Oh, Utah. I've never been, but these town names make me wonder.

There is a Booger, Tennessee. My dad and I would always joke about it when I was a kid.

Awesomeville? Heck yes. You can be the capital of Rebekahstan.
