Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner, and it's not too late to add some extra spirit to your holiday vacation. With that in mind, CSA Travel Protection has released a list of favorite towns with holiday-themed names to help travelers get in the spirit.
No matter what part of the country you call home, there's a town nearby with a name that sparks the holiday frame of mind.
1. Holiday— A suburb of the Tampa-St.Petersburg-Clearwater metropolitan area in Florida.
2. Joy— Double the joy, double the fun. Joy, AK is a township in White County; and Joy, IL is a village with a population of less than 400.
3. Thanksgiving, MD— A town just about five miles west of Easton.
4. Turkey— Just like on the meat on Thanksgiving, there's an abundance of towns named Turkey. You¹ll find one in Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas and West Virginia.
5. Pie, WV— If you live in or near West Virginia, you can enjoy as much Turkey and Pie as you can stand in one day.
6. Pumpkin— You'll find Pumpkin, GA northeast of Atlanta, and Pumpkin, TX is adjacent to the Sam Houston National Forest.
7. Cranberry— It's anyone's guess if the residents prefer them dried, sauced or jelled, but you'll find towns named after these tart little berries in Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
8. Eggnog, UT— It's most likely difficult to find a rum version of this popular drink here.
9. Chestnut— Go a little nuts and take a drive to a town called Chestnut in Alabama, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Montana, or West Virginia.
10. Snowflake— No two towns named Snowflake, whether in Arizona, Virginia or West Virginia, are alike.
