Jimmy Kimmel Is The Mayor Of Dildo In Canada & Here's What The Town Is Actually Like

You may have heard about a little town in Newfoundland and Labrador named Dildo, of which Jimmy Kimmel is randomly the mayor.

When I went to Dildo a couple of years ago, I had no idea that Jimmy Kimmel was obsessed with it at first.

My family and I were just driving to our cottage and happened to get hungry along the way. That's when my dad (yes, my dad) suggested we stop in at Dildo for lunch. My jaw dropped because I had no idea what the hell he was talking about.

Once I realized that this was the town's name, though, I had to go.

So we drove into the small fishing town, and after a quick Google search, I discovered that Jimmy Kimmel is its honorary mayor. I was surprised, to say the least.

There's a brewery there, and a tasty restaurant right on the water.

You can also visit Captain Dildo himself. It's obvious they really embrace the name and have fun with it.

We asked the server how the locals felt about Kimmel being their mayor, and she told us that they love it! It's brought some well-deserved recognition to the town.

The town is small but breathtaking, like most of Newfoundland.

You can stroll around the docks and look at the fishing huts, or have a patio drink if it's warm enough out⁠ — which it probably isn't, because it's Newfoundland after all.

The name is amazing, but the town is a great place to visit no matter what. Plus, you get to geotag your location with 'Dildo' on your Instagram post.
