Okey dokey. Sorry, gotta go. I'm going to go find some pretty pics of Denver to post here. It is located on the Great Plains and Colorado does border Kansas, after all. . As long as the pics are pretty and people like them, it's all good.

I've seen people on here argue about whether Oklahoma is Southern or Midwestern. Though it specifically said east coast and Midwest, I think the OP actually meant "anything that's not the west."

Thank you, that is how I read it too. It is kind of absurd that people are getting all worked up because I posted some other places that I thought the OP might be interested based on the overall message conveyed by the original post.

Oklahoma is not midwestern, period. The title of this thread is "Scenic Areas on East Coast/Midwest." How much more simple could the OP be? Arkansas and Oklahoma are not in the Midwest.

We are correcting your mistakes, which are misleading and off-topic for this thread. You made a mistake - admit it or don't, but get over it already, please. They're nice pictures, as I've stated several times now, but you didn't label them correctly and I simply wanted people on this thread to know which were part of the Midwest and which are not, since you didn't label them by state.

An interesting area of Wisconsin is the central sands area, which at one point was a glacial lake dotted with hundreds of islands. When the glaciers receded, the lake drained and left the only collection of buttes and mesas east of the Mississippi. The plain/former lake bottom is very flat (and contains the majority of the country's cranberry bogs), but it's dotted with hundreds of buttes/mesas (referred to locally as "mounds" or "bluffs" or even "rock"). The difference is it's a humid landscape, so they are covered in trees and vegetation.

Roche-A-Cri:


Mill Bluff State Park:


Levis/Trow (some of the best mountain biking in the Midwest):


Hundreds of roadside rock formations like Ship Rock:


Etc. Just an oddball thing that most people don't know about beyond locals...though the interstate between Madison and Minneapolis (closer to Madison) has some examples along the road.

Had a chance to visit a little bit of the driftless region in Wisconsin this week (basically one day). Sadly, I did not get any chances to stop and take pictures of the best scenery that I witnessed. It is a beautiful and unique area and definitely lived up to the hype that it has received on this forum!

I did get one picture of this barn on a hillside in Wisconsin:

Wisconsin is in the Midwest, and is therefore, completely flat, if surrounding states such as IL, MI and IA are an indicator. I don't understand why people in this forum try to promote it as a state having interesting topography and terrain. Really people? Really?

The Black Hills are really part of the Western States.

Well, it's not flat. I just visited it for the first time this week. Not. Flat.
