The "towns" on their list are ones they say hold stories, traditions, and monuments that are sometimes a little off the beaten path. Many of these towns aren't really considered vacation spots but are still worth a visit

This is the Most Unusual Town in Michigan


The most unusual town in Michigan according to Alot is none other than Hell.

While Hell, Michigan may seem like just your average small town at first glance, dig a little deeper, and find some truly unique features. Residents have really embraced their enviable namesake, with Hell Hole Diner serving up devilishly delicious cuisine and the Hell Chapel of Love offering an unconventional wedding ceremony for couples who—quite literally—want to tie the knot in Hell.


While it may not have much else going for it compared to other towns in the state, you can’t deny the creative spirit of the locals – they certainly make a visit to Hell, one that won’t soon be forgotten.
