The Top 10 Places to Visit in the American Midwest | Travel – BabaMail


The American Midwest is often thought of as being barren, boring and generally not very interesting, but that notion couldn’t be further from the truth. This great region of the United States, which is home to more than 65 million people, features culturally-rich cities, beautiful national parks and unique landmarks. That’s why I’ve decided to compile a list of the top 10 places to see (in no particular order) in the American Midwest. Are you ready to see what it has to offer you? Click on images to enlarge

5. The Wilder Trail
Laura Ingalls Wilder, the author of the Little House on the Prairie series of children’s books, actually has this hiking trail named in her memory. The famous frontier author lived in several homesteads along the route. It starts in Pepin, Wisconsin and meanders through Independence, Kansas to Walnut Grove, Minnesota and on to De Smet, South Dakota. Above is one of the prairie houses you’ll find along the way. Be ready to walk a long way though – this trail traverses some 800 miles of the Midwest!
