Go to Hades

Heroes spent long hours searching out the entrance to the underworld. They should have tried Hades Creek in Washington. Or maybe Elysian Fields, Texas. They could have tried Hell, Michigan, or if they are really desperate Hel (Norse version), Poland.

While we're at it, if you want to see the Parthenon but can't afford the plane trip to Greece, then try Parthenon, Arkansas.

Need to know which lottery numbers to pick? Try Oracle, Arizona or maybe just try your luck at Fortuna (Roman goddess of luck), California (if that's too far, settle for Fortuna. Missouri).

Heroes aren't too hard to find either. Try:
Ulysses in Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania
Achilles, Virginia
Ajax, South Dakota
Hector in Arkansas, California, and New York

Feeling a little curious? Stay AWAY from Pandora in Ohio and Texas.

Twenty states all have a Troy - not a one of them has a wall.

Love is in the air in Eros, Louisiana and Arizona.

Why anyone would choose to name their city Medusa, I don't know, but there is a Medusa, New York.

My personal favorite? Valhalla, NC.

There are many more. I found a lot of these at http://thanasis.com/modern/places.htm if you care to find more cities like Orion, Vesta, Minerva, Argo, and more.
