Every few years or so, The List likes to ferret out the most far-out-named cities we can find, because planners who choose any of these destinations for an event can run riot with the signage, promotional material, T-shirts, etc. And we love it when planners run riot. Tip: Say any of these city names aloud followed by "Convention and Visitors Bureau."
