Have You Heard of Manila, California, USA?



The suburb of Manila, Philippines ( UP, Diliman, Q.C.) is the place where I spent my college years and my first teaching job after my Bachelor's degree graduation. So, I was interested in finding out if there are other places in the world call Manila. I hope the following other places will not be known also as the GATES OF HELL!( according to Dan's Brown novel-Inferno). Manila is currently in the Internet with this video from the Blakes- a singing trio from London, UK.

I was surprised that there are actually 11 cities/towns that are named Manila in the US, two of them in Alabama. There is one city in Paraguay, South America also named Manila. Here is the lists for your information. For details and map of the various US cities look in Goggles. Is there a city or town named Manila in Europe or Canada?

1. Manila, Alabama ( Clarke County)

2. Manila, Alabama (Dallas County)

3. Manila, Arizona

4. Manila, Arkansas

5. Manila, California -Manila is an unincorporated community in Humboldt County, California. It is located 3.25 miles (5.2 km) north of downtown Eureka, at an elevation of 13 feet (4 m). The ZIP Code is 95521. The town was founded at the end of World War II, and named after Manila in the Philippines. I have been to Eureka on a business trip, but not in Manila, California.

6. Manila, Colorado

7. Manila, Kentucky

8. Manila, Missouri

9. Manila, Tennessee

10. Manila, Utah

11. Manila, West Virginia

12. Manila, Paraguay, South America

13. Manila, Philipines

Personal Note: Like New York City, Manila is a nice place to visit ( not during the rainy season), But I will not live there even if you gave me a million dollars!
