Across Canada, you'll find plenty of towns with names that are so strange, you won't believe they actually exist. There's everything from strange-sounding words and unflattering names, to plenty of sexual innuendoes on signs that you'll find along the road. So, if you're looking to go on a hilarious road trip, or two, why not travel across the country photographing some of the weirdest names of places in Canada?
This year, one of Canada's weirdest names made international news when Jimmy Kimmel featured the town of Dildo, Newfoundland. Kimmel loved the name of the town so much, he became the honourary Mayor of Dildo. As a gift to the city, Kimmel installed a large Hollywood-style sign with the name of the town.
But it isn't just Dildo with a unique name that draws tourists. In Canada, you'll find town names like Climax, Sober Island, Shag Harbour, and even Eyebrow! Because the names are so surprising, many people will visit these areas just to photograph the road sign. So, it's time to pack up the car and go on a road trip to see these spots for yourself.
