South Waverly, PA is about two hours' drive northwest of Waverly, PA. (Spoiled when you realize it's immediately south of Waverly, NY though.)

East Aurora, NY is about 2.5 hours' drive west of Aurora, NY. Strangely, both places have strong associations with American Girl dolls.

Illinois City, IL is just plain weird as a concept. http://www.city-data.com/zips/61259.html

Pennsylvania community names tend to be easy targets, such as Blue Ball being six miles from Intercourse. Less well known is the close proximity of Panic and Desire.
There's also a Virginville, PA. Nothing ironic about that, though, unless all the women there are hos.

Nowhere, Oklahoma - because anywhere called Nowhere is really somewhere.

All in South Carolina. Due West is not "due west" of anything significant. Neither is Ninety-Six. Six Mile used to be 6 miles away from a fort, but that fort was apparently abandoned 250 years ago, so now it just sounds silly.

There's nothing round about Round O, and apparently the "O" was added later. Denmark and Norway are also on the same highway in SC, 9 miles apart. And how can a city called Hardeeville not have even one Hardees??

We have a section in the shore town of Long Branch, NJ, called West End. It's the southernmost part of the city. The only thing it's west of is the Atlantic Ocean.

Vermont Heights, Florida. It has absolutely nothing that reminds one of Vermont and hasn't even a hill in it.
