Where it's at.
No plastic west-coasters, and no snobby east-coasters.
In other words, the best kept secret in America.

Home of
deep-dish pizza,
motown music,
friendly faces,
a bangin' theatre scene,
the gateway to the west,
affordable living,
and a hell of a lot of lakes.
life's the best in the the midwest...

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.

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, nothing there." Actually take some time out of your "busy" day and see what you're actually talking about. kthx!

Chicago has no farmland. And it's in the Midwest. Like, omg.

A massed region that attaches 13 states together. They include the following: Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas.
This is a huge area that is seen by many people in several different ways. Some think its boring, and full of hicks. Or, they love it, consider it a vacation area, and would love to raise a family there. It was mostly settled by people from the Northeast, Virginia, West Virginia, and every part of Kentucky. German and Irish immigrants also contributed heavily to settling this large area.
During the Civil War the area produced some of the finest, bravest Union regiments of the conflict. Later on, the Midwest would become a strong industrial/agricultural power in the world. It's cities are now major diverse, major educational centers.
The Midwest, one of the finest and most fun places to be.

A massed region that is thought to be full of hicks and more conservative people with dull, boring accents. These are bigotted, narrow-minded people from other regions who say this. The Midwest isn't a bad place at all.
