Pictured Rocks is just awesome, also take a short detour and visit Marquette, the largest town in the UP. Great area, hope to live there one day.

IMO it gets a bit better east of Salina.

As somebody else said, it's arguably worse.

Yes, eastern half of CO is flat and plain ugly. But the other half more than makes up for it

I don't think it's hated on at all.

I think it's just seen as bland, generic, squarely-average America. It's just kind of the national baseline.
