When I first saw this sign last year on South Beach, Boca Grande, Florida, I must have been thinking of you and thought it said Danville. I was wrong. It cleary says Davenport, IA.

The sign has Boston and Greenville way too far apart. I do not like it! Stuff like this should be fun and right!

You have to keep in mind that the sign is very close to a restaurant that serves alcohol to people who have been sitting in the sun all day. I am sure many who hung a sign thought accuracy is overrated.
