Themed street names

(1/58) > >>

For example, downtown Phoenix, Arizona has east-west streets named for US presidents (Van Buren, Washington, Pierce and so forth), the Palm Springs area has streets named after famous celebrities that lived there (Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Gerald Ford); in Redondo Beach, California, the little side streets off Catalina Drive are named for gems (Opal, Emerald, Garnet, Ruby).

Does your town or section of town have themed street names? (Tree names are so common, perhaps we can skip those.)

There is a section of Nashville near the airport with planet named streets.
