Highway to Hell
You may be surprised to find out that people do live in Hell. We’re talking, of course, about the city of Hell, Michigan, located 60 miles west of downtown Detroit. But before you think about making a prank call and asking how hot it is or when Hell will freeze over, you need to know that residents here have heard it all. They would much rather you make a personal visit to find out for yourself. And you should, because the Road to Hell is indeed paved and is actually quite a pleasant drive. Making the journey here has been a cult favorite of Metro Detroiters for years and a highly popular route for motorcyclists and road bikers due to its mix of winding roads, rolling hills, rivers and lakes, and stops in several great southern Michigan towns. Whatever route you take, the ultimate objective is to meet your destiny in Hell where a few unusual attractions await you. Fortunately, everyone we know has made it to Hell and back alive and well!
Michiganders aren’t really known for their food. Here are a few items that claim to be invented near Detroit.
An ice cream soda drink made from Vernors and vanilla ice cream and named after Boston Boulevard in Detroit. Pretty much only found in Detroit.
The brightly colored soft drink that the Insane Clown Posse loves to drink.
The polish version of a donut is the traditional food to eat on Fat Tuesday in the Hamtramck neighborhood.
