Winter is just around the corner here in West Michigan and it's time to start thinking about flannels, warm blankets, and things you can do in the snow.

While the entire feels pretty cozy in the winter months, there are a few places in the mitten state that just feel like a winter wonderland inside of a snow globe.

The experts over at Stacker have compiled a list of the most "cozy" cities/towns in America, and naturally two Michigan towns made the list.

They say that the towns were picked based on what visitor's opinions of the cities, ratings from nationwide publications, as well as available activities, landmarks, and other tourist attractions.

So if you're looking to live your best Hallmark Movie life this winter, here's where you'll want to head:

Ann Arbor, Michigan

This Detroit suburb is cozy no matter what time of year you visit, but they have a special event that will have you singing songs and sipping coca.


You won't want to miss Midnight Madness which is the town's annual one-night Holiday event, where local boutiques along Main Street stay open late for you to get some of those presents marked off your list.

While Ann Arbor is great, there's another city on the other side of the state that might fit your comfy cozy needs

Traverse City, Michigan

Traverse City is great to visit no matter what time of year you go, from the Cherry Festival to the beautiful lakeshore views, it truly is one of a kind.

Just like Ann Arbor, they have an adorable downtown full of fantastic local shops to find unique gifts. But, they offer one other activity that is only available during the winter: Skiing. If you want to try something different, Stacker says you can try night skiing at Timber Ridge Recreation Resort, or take a fat bike for a spin on Traverse City's Winter Sports Singletrack Trail.
