5. Forks of Salmon, CA

We're all prone to gobbling up a good-old dosage of omega-3s, but we're sure Forks of Salmon in sunny California would serve the freshest salmon we'd ever tasted.

In reality, this town isn't a place populated exclusively by salmon-lovers. The town is located nearby the confluence of the north and south forks of the Salmon River, hence the fishy name.

If you want another peaceful place to drink away your sorrows you could always head to No Name.

If that proves boring you could always go to a town that has a name. But what would be the fun in that?

Uh-oh, this place doesn't sound too safe. Oh, what's that I hear you say? It's in Connecticut? Oh, well, in that case, you're probably not going to run into too much "hazards."

Well, unless you have the misfortune of coming across a self-entitled bunch of rich kids in tweed jackets and yellow-striped jumpers.

8. Blue Ball, DE

Blue Ball (stop laughing) is a tiny little ol' town in New Castle County, Delaware located at the junction of U.S. Route 202, Delaware Route 141, and Delaware Route 261 north of Wilmington.

While there isn't too much to do here, we're sure the town is full of many frustrated males.

9. Fluffy Landing, FL

Unfortunately, Florida isn't the paradise postcards would have you believe. 

In actuality, the place is swamped by alligators, snakes, sharks, crazed weather, and Jeb Bush.
