Hell, MI: 5 Towns With Spooky Names
If you've ever wanted to say you've been "to Hell
and back," just make a stop in this southeast Michigan community, where
residents (who call themselves "Hellions") happily sell you
souvenirs commemorating your journey to the ominously named town. Visit
in October and join the annual Run Through Hell on Halloween Eve, the
proceeds from which go to help a designated military veteran. If you
want ice cream in Hell (who doesn't?) stop by Screams Ice Cream, or
visit Hell in a Handbasket general store to buy your own square inch of
Hell (you get an "official deed"). All it costs is $6.66 -- your soul,
fortunately, is not part of the transaction.
