I am confused and don't know where to go to find out what the differences are in street names. There are Roads, Streets, Avenues, Parkways, Courts, Places, Loops, and many others. I recall being taught that Roads and Streets don't dead end. I believe there were some that meant the road was not a through street. It seems to me a circle realy meant that the passage way would reconnect with the passage way it came from at some point. Oh, yah, there is Drive....All this is quite confusing. Is there anywhere I can go that would attempt to clear this up for me? Is there any formallity to these?
There is no rhyme nor reason as to how roads get their names. See the following link for additional possibilities. The Straight Dope: What's the difference between a street, a road, an avenue, a boulevard, etc.?
