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.
