Tourist spots in the Midwest
The Midwest is the most underestimated part of the US, in terms of touristic activity. I lived in Kansas City and in nearby Manhattan for several years and simply loved the beauty of the area. In winter it was a stark, bare kind of beauty that transformed into an incredibly fresh and lush spring. Summer was simply glorious and the fall was charming, not like the fall in the north east but still a beautiful time of the year. Nearby, Branson Missouri was a great getaway for its hills, misty beauty and of course all the musical shows that take place. The Ozarks are one of the most beautiful hills and reminded me of being in the Shenandoah mountain park in Virginia.
