Everglades, FL

Alligator Alley (also known as Everglades Parkway) is a section of Interstate 75 (State Road 93) and State Road 84 extending from Naples on the west coast of Florida to Weston on the east. First opened in 1969, most of the highway traverses the Everglades.

The name was given by the American Automobile Association during planning; they believed it would be a useless road, an alley for alligators. However, since alligators often frequent the waterways beside the road, the nickname has a somewhat literal meaning. (Information from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alligator_Alley)
