The world's biggest cornfield stretching from Ohio into southern Michigan, most of Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, southern Minnesota and Nebraska. Some people consider it among the worst areas of the country with nothing but hicks, hillbillies, state fairs, plows and tractors. Yes, it has plenty of those but the Corn Belt is actually within the most industrialized region of the U.S. It contains large manufacturing centers such as Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Columbus, Cincinnati, St. Louis, and smaller Omaha, Madison, Ft. Wayne, Des Moines, Lansing, Dayton and Lincoln.
The Corn Belt is genrally boring but also very industrial.
