There is no such thing as *flyover country*
Whenever I visit my family in Europe, the East Coast is flyover country for me.

I honestly don't know why people like you come into threads like this just to say things like that......it's sort of hypocritical.

Some of the most beautiful places are midwest flyover places. All the northwoods of Mn, WI and Mi, and of course the lakes. The Ohio and Mississippi river valleys and all thier history, the wide open plains of Nebraska and Kansas. I am just shocked when I hear comments like this, go out and see the place before you discount it. The midwest, and the south too seem to be punching bags for people who live on the coasts.
You also left out the Missouri river valley...another big valley in the Midwest. And the Midwest also does have mountainous areas...the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan, the unglaciated areas in Wisconsin, the Northwoods, and the Ozarks.

My favorites are South Dakota and Nebraska (current home and former home). Others I have been to and don't mind:

Iowa - Eastern Iowa is pretty nice. I enjoy visiting Iowa City and the Amana Colonies.
Missouri - Kansas City is okay. I'd like to visit the Ozarks and St. Louis some day.
Kansas - Haven't spent much time here, except for a couple short visits to Topeka. I'm sure there are other parts worth visiting.
Illinois - my experience here is a weekend in Chicago. It was fun for a few days but I'd never live there.

I haven't been to the rest, but I think I'd find something interesting in all of them.

Ya, you definitely need to visit the Upper Midwest. Lots of variety to take in the Great Lakes region.
