Sign at exit 119 of Interstate 70

No Name[1] is a census-designated place in Garfield County, Colorado. The population as of the 2010 Census was 123.[2] It is located east of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, off exit 119 of Interstate 70 in Glenwood Canyon. It is named for No Name Creek and No Name Canyon. The No Name Tunnel of I-70 is nearby. The exit sign for No Name is visible in passing in the film Vanishing Point.

When Interstate 70 in Colorado was being built, developers planned an exit at a then unnamed area. They decided to mark the exit sign "No Name" and, after the area was built up, the name stuck.[3] It has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names.[4]

There are two other exits along Interstate 70 in Colorado that are nameless: Exit 218 east of Loveland Pass, and Exit 354 west of Limon - in both these instances, advance signage is marked merely with an exit number and the distance to that exit.
