Which City In Michigan Has “The Best Name”?
I was scrolling through Reddit the other day when I saw someone make a pretty big statement in the Michigan subreddit.
Lakelov3r said: Bad Axe is the best city name in all of Michigan
As I continued reading I found myself laughing pretty hard at some of the cities people said had the "Best Name" in Michigan.
