I’ve been to Hell, which is a rock formation in the Cayman Islands, BWI.  Sort of an out-of-place area, not that big, of broken limestone rocks.  Tourist trap, with a gas station the “Hell Service Station” selling various Hell themed stuff. 

BTW, they sell gasoline (petrol) in Imperial gallons, priced in Cayman Islands dollars.  The math is impossible.

They cancel out pretty much exactly.
1 Imperial gallon = 1.20095042 US gallons
1 Cayman Islands dollar = 1.2 US dollars (currency is pegged)

I've been to Paradise, MI several times.  I think I was in Paradise Valley, AZ once on a trip to Scottsdale.

I've also been through Blue Ball, OH many times.

How about Fucking, Austria before it got renamed?

I was reading the latest issue of Stereophile while eating lunch and discovered Middelfart, Denmark.
This reminded me of this sign I found a while ago:
