Paradise, Michigan: Town Named Paradise

We're not sure how bucolic this town would seem during a February blizzard, but it is a counterpoint to the Michigan town named Hell.

Hwy 23, Paradise, MI
North of St. Ignace on Hwy 123, along Lake Superior. For the record, Hell is roughly 340 miles due south of Paradise.

Town Named Paradise

Town Named Paradise

Years ago we were in a tavern there, and were looking for Jimmy Buffet's Cheeseburger in Paradise on the juke box. They said the cooks had it taken off because they got so tired of hearing that played every time someone ordered a damned cheeseburger.

[Karen, 10/13/2007]

If cheeseburgers were damned, perhaps Paradise would be their Hell...
