We're here to help, as we've made very literal translations of some of our most prominent Spanish street names:
10.) Rio Salado Parkway: Salt River Parkway. Logical name because of the riverbed it runs along.
9.) Monte Vista Road: Mountain View Road. This one's not next to a mountain, but if you're rich enough to live in this high-rise condo complex in downtown Phoenix, you can see all the metro mountains, especially Camelback.
8.) Encanto Boulevard: Charming Boulevard. Lovely, and it goes along with the lovely old homes in this downtown Phoenix neighborhood.
7.) Manzanita Drive: Little Apple Drive. Less literally, this street in North Phoenix is named after the manzanita shrubs, which are native to here but don't grow miniature apples.
6) Corona Avenue: Crown Avenue. Now you know why there's a crown in the beer company's logo, not that there's anything regal about the South Phoenix neighborhood this avenue traverses.
5.) Alta Vista Road: High View Road. Strange name for this road in flat-as-a-pancake South Phoenix.
4.) Montebello Avenue: This is not not even Spanish. It's Italian for "Beautiful Mountain" Avenue. And there's one in sight, Camelback, from this avenue's Central Phoenix location.
3.) Via de Ventura: The Way of Fortune. Well it does run through pricey McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale.
2.) El Camino Drive: The Road Drive. Because that makes sense.
1.) Palo Verde Drive: Green Stick Drive. The little lane off Interstate 17 north of the 101 is named after the beautiful desert trees, which indeed are thick to thin, sinuous green sticks.
