Right, thanks for stating this in a far more clear fashion than I - for some people (mostly here on C-D and nowhere else), the only thing worth visiting is a large metro. For the average person in this country, the opposite is true.

I don't believe anywhere near "hundreds of thousands" of Wisconsinites live within 100 miles of the Twin Cities. Maybe, if you include Eau Claire (which is 90+ miles away), 100,000-200,000 range over that quite large territory. Those folks definitely do visit the Twin Cities, though, as they don't have their own Milwaukee nearby, and it's the only true metro option.
Well I did have Eau Claire in mind, but even without that St. Croix and Pierce are still Wisconsin counties at the end of the day and are home to about 150K residents.

You are right about a lot of Georgians, including myself, vacationing in Florida, but their destination is not usually Miami...

It's apparent that they do, as it was ranked 8th in where people are interested in traveling, but much lower on where people actually go. So there is an interest, but fewer people actually make the trip, for different reasons.

There's actually a fair amount of Civil War-era history stuff throughout IL, including all the Abraham Lincoln stuff, there's the Cahokia mounds that are kind of cool and a UNESCO site, lots of Route 66 Americana stuff, there's a lot of outdoor recreation in the southern part of the state. I'm actually surprised Minnesota was listed for Wisconsin simply because Chicago is such a huge draw, tons and tons of people from the Midwest come here, and it's, well, in Illinois.
