I think Rome and Athens Georgia are pretty funny given the contrast of these small cities to the Rome and Athens overseas.

An even more extreme contrast is Paris, TN. It does, however, have its' own Tour d'Eiffel.

Escondido, California - escondido means hidden, and this city isn't really all that hard to find having a major interstate freeway cutting through it.


Long Beach - wheres the beach? It's mainly just a port city. No one in LA thinks about the beach when they think about Long Beach.

Thousand Oaks- are there really 1,000 oaks within the city limits and not 999 nor 1,001? Hmmm
Moreno means brown...

This isn't a city.....but "Good Hope Road" is in the worst, most crime-ridden section of Washington D.C. (and it's been that way for 50 years).
