We’ve compiled a list of the weirdest street names in Virginia! (You’re welcome.)

How often do you actually think about street names? And how often do street names make you pause and look back for a second glance to make you sure you read it correctly? Well … we’re about to take you on a journey through our 10 favorite street names in Virginia.

1. Cadbury Row

If your mind didn’t immediately wander to the mouthwatering Cadbury chocolates when you read this street name in Alexandria, then sorry, we can’t help you. Imagine living on a quaint street like this with such a scrumptious name! I’d be craving chocolate every time I rounded the corner toward home.

2. Blackbeard Road

Maybe you’ve heard of the legend of the pirate Blackbeard — or seen the character of the same name from Pirates of the Carribean. While this street in Virginia Beach has NOTHING to do with pirates, we can’t help but wonder if there’s darkness lying just beyond that bend. These houses do sit along a lake, after all …

3. Yellow Brick Road

No, you won’t be off to see the wizard down this black asphalt road in Fairfax, but you can pretend if you like!

4. Butts Station Rd.

There’s nothing out of the ordinary about this road in Chesapeake, but your little ones (or you) might get a chuckle out of it anyway.

5. The Corner of Shady and Creepers

We’re not saying you should avoid these crossroads … but, we’re not saying you shouldn’t avoid them either. This intersection certainly makes us feel like we’re in a thriller! But if you’re feeling bold, you can find these streets in Damascus!

6. Frying Pan Road

Did anyone else fantasize about home-cooked meals? Or was that just us? Anyway, this one’s in Herndon.

7. Lickinghole Rd.

Uhh… let’s keep it moving, shall we?

8. Pennypacker Lane

Sounds like whoever lives here are pretty good penny pinchers. You’ll find this street in Fairfax.

9. Anchored in Love Drive

Awwwww. “Anchored in love” doesn’t seem like the worst thing to be! Head to Hiltons, VA, for this one.

10. Butterscotch Court

Sounds like this Winchester street belongs in a Strawberry Shortcake episode!
