Fall is here and that means winter is just around the corner. Although you can't beat a great beach and some poolside sunshine you get with summer, there's something pretty amazing about those cozy moments you only find in those cold weather months.

Stacker took on the task of putting together a list of "50 Cozy Towns to Visit This Winter" to get you set for cuddle and cocoa season. They searched out those places that offer a quaint seasonal vibe that's like no other.

"Towns were selected based on visitor opinions, ratings from nationwide publications like U.S. News & World Report, Country Living, and Travel & Leisure, as well as available activities, landmarks, and other tourist attractions".

Now granted, thousands of towns across the U.S. match that description. From mountain seclusion to charming main streets, coziness can be found just about anywhere. That's why it's pretty impressive to find not one, but two Michigan towns making the list.

Which 2 Michigan Towns Were Named the Coziest to Visit This Winter?

We are sure Stacker has a hard time narrowing down their picks to just two towns in Michigan to make the list, but we love the choices they made.

Ann Arbor:

"Occupying the unique space between Midwestern charm and cosmopolitan urban energy, Detroit offers world-class theater, performing arts, and museum experiences. Don't miss Midnight Madness on Dec. 2, the town's annual one-night event, where local boutiques along Main Street stay open late for holiday shopping".

Traverse City:

"Traverse City offers visitors one of the most beautiful wintry landscapes around. And while it may not have the idyllic downhill ski runs of Utah or Colorado, this northern Michigan town still has its share of winter attractions. For a new twist on the slopes, try night skiing at Timber Ridge Recreation Resort, or take a fat bike for a spin on Traverse City's Winter Sports Singletrack Trail".

Whether you choose the tranquil beauty of Traverse City or the cultural charm of Ann Arbor, you're guaranteed a cozy winter getaway.
