I-70 through OH and IN. Sure it's not KS or NE flat but compared to what we experienced driving through KY and TN it was rather mehhh. KY and TN definitely have a lot going for them as far as natural beauty.

I would venture to say the opposite. Only boring people think drives can't be boring.

People who have seen exciting and/or majestic areas can certainly point out plain and/or boring areas.

Fully half of the I-70 drive through KS ranges between lovely and breathtaking. And it's probably the second worst highway drive through the state on an east-west axis.

The upper Midwest is very different from the lower Midwest/plains as well. Most of Illinois, Iowa, Kamsas and Nebraska, and a 1/3 of Minnesota are flat farmland. Wisconsin, 2/3 Minnesota and the driftless region of IA/IL have varied landscapes. SD has rolling hills.

????

Need to get out a little more. Now I-70 through Colorado I could give you, but only the western half of it. Once I-70 gets east of Denver, it's boring until KC.

Sweet burn, bro.


Maybe as a Texas resident who "gets out" so widely you have noticed in your impossibly rich and certainly extensive travels that there is no section of the Midwest the size of Texas which is anywhere near as flat as Texas...or as boorish and dull as Texans.
