Feel like going to Hell today? Hell, Michigan, that is—a town about 20 miles outside of Ann Arbor, whose ice cream parlor welcomes visitors with flavors like “scaramel” and “buttersnot.” No? Too much for you? Well, what about Half Hell, North Carolina?That shouldn’t be quite so full of fire and brimstone.
If there’s ever a day to pay homage to a town with a spooky name—and trust me, there are plenty; in fact there’s probably one just a few hours’ drive from wherever you are—Halloween would be the day. What about Devil Town, Ohio? Devil’s Backbone, Connecticut? Or how about visiting another part of the devil’s anatomy entirely and heading up to Devil’s Elbow in California’s Colusa county? And for something a little different, there’s always Satan’s Kingdom, Vermont.
