AtoZ Challenge 2021 – Signs Signs – The N Signs #atozchallenge

Welcome to another year of the AtoZ Challenge.  This year I am doing signs that I have seen across the country.  This post will feature signs associated with the Letter N. ENJOY THE RIDE!

We can’t avoid signs.  They are everywhere.  Advertisements, informational signs, directional signs, business signs and, sometimes, even humorous and fun signs.  Each of my posts in this years’ challenge will feature a hodgepodge of signs I have come across in my travels.  In most cases, I’ll also note where they were taken.  Some were actually inside of shops or otherwise, so not all will have locations.  I hope you enjoy this fun trip each day of April.

So, let’s start off with Nice….you can be Nice or Leave.  I like Nice!

Welcome to Nice – California (you can see a nice guy in this pic!)
Be Nice or Go Away
Be Nice or Leave – Paradise Point, Scottsville, Kentucky
Have a Nice Day – Gillette, Wyoming

Of course, one of the most common signs I come across includes the word NO…  No is really not a nice word, but I guess it has its purpose.

I like the No Shirt, No Service signs…here are a couple of classics!

No Shirt sign at Circle N Market – Forrest City, Arkansas
No Shirt, NO Shoes, No Service – Ferdinand, Indiana
Bathroom Humor — and guess what I did?
No Spitting on Floor at antique shop in Doolittle, Missouri

I’ll take this one!!!

No Bad Days – Aberdeen, Oregon

But, I don’t like this one….

And now for a couple of interesting signs that I found on the back roads

Nostalgia Street Rods – Baker, California
No Name Street – Millersburg, Ohio
Nitt Witt Ridge – Cambria, California

Nifty Theatre – Waterville, Washington

Natural Bridge State Resort Park – Slade, Kentucky
Norbeck By Way – US 16A – South Dakota (look this up — a great drive)

Then there are the states and towns that begin with N.  Let’s start with some of the states.  I don’t have photos of some of the welcome signs for New Jersey, New York and North Dakota

Welcome to North Carolina
Welcome to Nevada
Welcome to New Hampshire

Welcome to Nebraska

And then there is an assortment of towns.  Let’s start with the questionable one.  Am I in Normal?  Nah…
