Okay, I was going to be really mean and say how crappy I think the midwest is. But, with the exception of Missouri (which was actually kind of pretty) and Kansas (which was too flat for my taste), I've not really seen the midwest. And I know plenty of people from the midwest who are really nice and cool. Sure, midwesterners get labeled as fat, boring and backward, but hey, you can find people like that all over the country, right? I don't think the midwest has a monopoly.
I admit, I must have the deserts of Arizona, the mountains of Colorado and the beaches of California, the spicy food of the southwest, and the sunshine all over the west, but I'm sure the midwest has it's share of interesting stuff too.
Anyway, we're all Americans, so what difference does it make?
The midwest probably gets slammed by people who have never even been there, or just passed through.
Best place for a good time. Better then the eastside, better than the westside, and way better than the southside.
Want to party, go to the midwest.
a place were basically the average middle class Americans live, who work hard for their money. Not rich snobs in New England or the West Coast and not lazy welfare bums from the South. I'm from Western Pennsylvania which I consider to be part of the Midwest (only thing missing is plains). Not eastern Pennsylvania with all the snobs in Philadelphia.
I'm not from the Midwest but I love it. Why can't western Pennsylvania be part of the Midwest?
Composed of 12 states. Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan. Can be further subdivided into the Upper Midwest, Lower Midwest, and Great Plains. Great Plains: Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota. Upper Midwest: Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan.
Lower Midwest: Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio. All the lower Midwestern states have major Southern components to them in their Southern portions due to their touching the MAson-Dixon lines in their Southernmost areas, but are generally Midwestern everywhere else. Kentucky is also often included but is the South due its location below the MAson-Dixon, which is the 36 degree latitude line across Missouri (meaning just about all of missouri is in the midwest) the Ohio River, and the Maryland-Pennsylvania border.
I'm north of the Mason-Dixon line I have no accent, I don't drink sweet tea, i'm in the middle of the country, i don't touch any oceans, I'm east of the Rockies. I'm from the Midwest.
A very loose term or figure-of-speech referring to the north-central or central United States that is actually a collection of several geographic regions stretching from Ohio to the Dakotas and often include the Rustbelt (Ohio, Michigan, far northern Indiana and sometimes western Pennsylvania which isn’t really in the Midwest at all), the Great Lakes (Ohio, there’s Pennsylvania again, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and usually Minnesota) and the Great Plains (Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and northern Texas). Sometimes, and for some reason, even Oklahoma and northern Texas are included. Other terms to refer to the Midwest are the Corn Belt, the world’s biggest cornfield, America’s Breadbasket, tornado alley and “fly-over territory.” Chicago, Detroit and Indianapolis are its largest single cities (when considering the Midwest as it is usually identified) while Illinois, Ohio and Michigan are its most populated states (unless you consider Texas as part of the Midwest). Other important cities include Columbus, OH, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Kansas City, Wichita, Omaha and sometimes Louisville, KY, Dallas, Oklahoma City or Tulsa may be included for some reason.
Chicago: very cosmopolitan. The Midwestern version of New York. It has a huge lakefront, tons of culture, diversity, museums, tons of shopping especially along Michigan Avenue, awesome architecture and the country’s second largest skyline after Midt...
