Reverse Geocode (Geocoding)

Creates addresses from point locations in a feature class. The reverse geocoding process searches for the nearest address or intersection for the point location based on the specified search distance.

In ArcMap, the tool is located under Geocoding Tools. Note that you'll need to have an address locator to reverse geocode with.

United States Street Address :

Canada Address:

Bunch more if you browse the directory (look for .loc files):
