Illinois’ ‘Weirdest Town Name’ Is Totally Weird And Now We Want To Visit
When you think of weird town names, you have to search pretty far to find one in Illinois.
Sure, some might think Winnebago is a weird town name, but for us, nah, it's fine.
How far do you need to go to arrive at the "weirdest town" in Illinois?
Actually, pretty far.
Zippia put together a list of all 50 states featuring the weirdest town names in each.
While Egg Harbor was named Wisconsin's weirdest town name, for us, again, not that weird.
Remember Egg Harbor Cafe? At the time, it didn't make much sense, but who knows maybe the name had something to do with the "weird" name town in Wisconsin.
Anyway, to get to the weirdest town in Illinois, you're going to need to pack up the car and fill up the tank, because you're headed to Danville.
No, Danville wasn't named the "weird town" but just south of there in the small burg of Chicken Bristle.
That's right, there's a Chicken Bristle, Illinois.
Nestled in Douglas County, about 5 and a half miles from Tuscola, sits Chicken Bristle.
Wikipedia says "Chicken Bristle has been noted for its unusual name." You don't say?
A drive from Rockford to Chicken Bristle will take you roughly three hours and 14 minutes.
Might as well go see what's going on in Chicken Bristle this weekend. Not like we've got much else to do.
