    I've been to French Lick IN which is close to Bean Blossom and Santa Claus. I don't think we Canadians have silly names like that. Except for Punky Doodle's Corners in ON.

    I made the drive from Philly to Harrisburg once intentionally staying off the highway so I could drive through towns like this one. Bird-in-Hand, White Horse, Black Horse, Intercourse, etc. Fun drive. Beautiful scenery.
