Punkydoodles Corner? Happy Adventure? Accident? No, these aren’t places from cartoons, they’re real life in North America. These quirky town names could make even the most grouchy visitor smile, and they’ll surely make you giggle.


Cool, California

No one in this town, 40 miles from Sacramento, is quite sure why they became Cool, but they’re certainly cooler for living there. An ultramarathon called  the “Way Too Cool” happens every March, and runners will be sure to cool off from the California heat because there’s a mountain pass they have to run through in order to get to Cool. That part sounds alright to us, but the ultramarathon? Not so much.
