Whether you live in the area and want to take a Midwest vacation without traveling too far from home, or you already intend to travel to the Midwest from a different part of the country, there are many exciting and interesting places to visit in the middle of the country. Here are some of the best.
Wisconsin’s capital city offers all of the benefits of a capital in terms of a historic location to visit. It is also a lake city, so you can enjoy the water based activities common along a lakefront. Its free zoo and multiple cultural attractions draw many guests as well, but what makes Madison such an interesting place to visit is its amazing food culture. Midwest Living magazine called it one of the best food towns in the area. Its weekly farmers market highlights this very well.
Travel up the arch, take a ride on a riverboat, or explore some of the Midwest’s finest museums with a trip to St. Louis. This popular town on the Illinois/Missouri border offers much for the traveler to experience. Travel on Route 159 east of the city to see the World’s Largest Catsup Bottle during your trip. That is an experience worth writing home about!
Upper Peninsula of Michigan
Michigan’s Upper Peninsula region is one of the top locations for people who love nature. This is an excellent place to spot bald eagles, so keep your camera handy. Fishing, boating, and skiing are all popular activities in this part of the Midwest. Vacation there for your next getaway and you won’t regret it!
