Here’s a Roadside Michigan place I’m sure most of you are aware of: the town of Hell.

This is possibly the only Hell that is enjoyable to visit…and it’s close by.

On your Michigan roadtrip, this make a fun little out-of-the-way stop with enough photo-ops…you can also be “Mayor of Hell” for a day.

Why is little burg named ‘Hell’? Possibly from visiting Germans in the 1830’s who referred to it as “so schön hell,”  meaning “so beautifully bright.” Others claim it was dubbed by founder George Reeves, who said “you can name it Hell for all I care” when asked the name of his new town. And still some say the town was so overridden with mosquitoes and swampland that the unbearable living conditions caused the town’s name.

There’s not much there except a store that has weird, hell-ish gifts, knick-knacks, etc. and another little party store. Lots of ‘hell’ joke signs around for photo ops. It’s a fun little stop that will probably take you anywhere from a half hour or more just enjoying this very small Roadside Michigan stop.
