Can You Leap Tall Buildings in a Single Bound?


On the shore of the Ohio River and near where the state lines of Illinois and Kentucky meet, you'll find a small Illinois town named Metropolis. If you've ever watched "Superman", you'll probably recognize the town's name. Over 50 years ago, this Illinois town became officially known as the adopted "Home of Superman". Even the Metropolis Rest Area has jumped on the Superman theme!

What cities do you want to visit because of their name?

We left the Kansas City area and decided to make a detour to Florida on our way home to Texas! Our drive took us through southern Illinois where we passed through a small town named Metropolis. Because we were on a mission, we only had enough time to stop in the roadside rest area. But ... it made me do a little research. In addition to some other outdoor finds, I found that Metropolis has a Superman Museum as well as statues of both Superman and Lois Lane.

Has the name of a city ever intrigued you?
