No passport, no problem by Axios
The U.S. is filled with towns and cities that were named after foreign places: You can take a trip to Naples, N.Y., or Paris, Texas. — and go on a world tour without ever leaving your home state. With interactive maps and graphics, the Axios Visuals team conjured up curated routes for a Mediterranean getaway or a tour of the ancient world — all in the U.S. The names of these places reflect the history of immigration in the U.S., as immigrants would frequently rename their new home after the area they came from. Use the interactive maps to hit the road and explore trips around the world without leaving a state.
