Arguably the coolest college town in the Midwest, with only Madison WI rivalling it. Basically a suburb of Chicago, whom IC owes much of its population base (especially UI student body) and culture to. Septembers in IC are gorgeous, and Iowa football fans are as loyal and raucous as they come.
FACT: Iowa City has the highest percentage of people with college degrees in the world.
A region of the United States. Most people that haven't been there are, of course, the ones that know nothing about the Midwest, and label it as a place filled with Rednecks and farmland. What people really need to realize is that the Midwest has far more to offer than just farmland and rednecks. There are large Asian, Black, and Latino populations here. Made up of twelve states: 1) Region that the U.S. Census Bureau claims is comprised of these twelve states: Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and Missouri.more...
Chicago, Illinois - The REAL second city, although it's the third largest city in the United States, and has the second largest downtown, only behind Midtown Manhattan. Very much diverse.
Detroit - Notorious for being one of the most dangerous cities in the US, many suburban areas are ritzy, including Troy, home of the Somerset Collection.
Indianapolis - The third largest city in the midwest. It's the second largest capital city in the US, and it's population is expected to keep on rising. Although a lot of the homes are older, there are newer subdivisions, including homes in Meridian Hills, which houses some of Indiana's most wealthy.
There's also St. Louis, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Columbus, Milwaukee, and many more.
So what if there is a lot of farmland?! The Midwest has some of the richest soil in the world. So before you go and say "Who wants to go to the midwest? There's like, not...
The largest city in the Midwest (pop. about 2.9 million). Has alot of museums and malls. More livible than N.Y.C. and not as expensive as L.A. Great resturauts. Nice people but don't piss them off. Large, beautiful skyline. Beats all other midwestern cities.
Indianapolis ain't got nothin on Chicago.

One more boring WHITE cities in the midwest. Just a meeting spot for all of the cowboys and farmers to gather and have beer. One city surrounded by a bunch of cornfields and suburbs of more corn fields. Nothing else.
Oklahoman: Yeehaw lets awl go ta Oklahoma City an get us 'um beer.
Denverite:Why the hell am I here?
A derogatory term to refer to the city of Indianapolis, Indiana. This nickname is not entirely without merit, however. Although it's a comfortable, Midwest city with a steadily-growing economy, a growing population and an increase in ammenities, it is perceived as being Dullsville to the Coastal cities. It is easy to see why. It lies in the middle of nowhere--in the flat Corn Belt with no mountains, no rivers or even navigable ones, no culture, no lightlife, no high-density developement, no greenspace, no opportunites to get out and enjoy nature, not a huge number of suburbs, no high-tech jobs and abysmal public transportation. Rumor has it that Indy is talking of creating lightrail in the future, but don't count on it. Too many people in the area are too antiquated and narrowminded to accept changing anything.
Indianapolis is making valiant efforts to reinvent itself and has received national recognition for many of its developments. But it has a long way to go before being considered a hip place and a world-class city that it calls itself, for some reason. Yes, it has made improvements but may never shake off its image. You can't help your geography.
Indianoplace gets a bat rap from outsiders who don't know that the city actually has more pros than cons.
