Hell, Michigan: Snowy Day in Hell

Hell, Michigan

As it turns out, Hell does freeze over. Hell, Michigan, that is. Dubbed "Hell" by 19th century farm wives whose husbands returned home drunk after turning their grain into whiskey at a local still, today's Hell has a sense of humor. Local hangout Screams Ice Cream serves up the Grave Digger banana split, has a coffin of ice cream toppings, and offers Hell-branded souvenirs. Is a T-shirt not enough? You can also get married in Hell or be mayor of Hell for a day.
