you remember that nearly every exit off I-5 used to point the driver toward "Ocean Beaches."  I don't know whether this is true, but alledgedly some out-of-staters thought that Ocean Beaches was a town.  Of course, it's not--it's the beaches that are on the ocean.  Well, I have not seen Ocean Beaches in a while. I think all the signs now read "Oregon Coast."

On US Hwy. 26 heading west into Portland from Mt. Hood and points east,
there is a sign for an exit that takes you to Oregon City and the town of
Boring.  You guessed it--the sign reads:

Oregon City

As a resident of the latter locality, I'm always inclined to comment, as
The New Yorker might once have done, "Just give the directions, please!"
