Every state indeed has those fascinating and unique towns. Some truly stand out from the rest for their charm and "must-see" destination vibe, but some truly stand out from the rest for being a bit strange or unusual.

The travel site recently decided to highlight the more interesting towns in each state. "The Most Unusual Town in Every State" focuses on those places that you may not stumble upon every day.

"These places hold stories, traditions, and monuments that are sometimes a little off the beaten path--not many of these places are at the top of vacation bucket lists. But that doesn’t mean they’re not worth a visit! They all contribute, in their own small way, to the long, sometimes bizarre story of the United States."

If you plan on searching for that town in Michigan, you'll need to go to hell...literally. The town of Hell, Michigan was picked as the most unusual in the state. The tiny Livingston County town has a population under 300 was chosen more for its creative spirit more than anything else.

"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", Travel ALot wrote. 

And yes...hell does freeze over. It's Michigan.
