There's A Town Actually Named 'Dildo,' And Here's Why You Should Visit

By

There are a lot of interesting places in the world. But if you think you've visited some towns with pretty unique names, just wait because you haven't seen anything yet.

It turns out there's a town in Canada that's actually called Dildo. No really, I'm not joking.

This phallic fishing town is located in the providence of Newfoundland and Labrador, and in case you were wondering, the answer is yes, the people who live here do refer to themselves as Dildoians.

All sex jokes asides, this charming little village looks like the perfect destination to dick around for a few days. Visitors really seem to get off by taking Instagram pics alongside Dildo's signature road signs. Plus, you can get a little wet and feel the motion of the ocean by hitting up Dildo Harbour for a day of boating and fishing.

If that's not convincing enough, you'll be glad to know this wee town also has an annual waterfront festival at the end of July known as Dildo Days. A bunch of boats parade through the harbor, led by none other than the town's infamous mascot, a wooden statue named Captain Dildo.

Yep, if you ask me, this private little place definitely deserves a spot on your steamy summer travel list.

This sign might look like a pretty funny practical joke...
