A midwestern state that has as many nice areas as cornfields and steel mills, and ghettos. There are many definitions on here that mention the rednecks, well I'm from the region(northwest) and there are all kinds of people here only a small percentage of rednecks. I guess that the rest of the state is different. The Indiana Dunes are beautiful and we are close enough to Chicago to commute for work or fun. It isn't the most beautiful state but it's not all bad.
