I can maybe, kind of, sort of, not really see Wichita as not being Midwestern but Lincoln? You've got some explaining to do there.

First choice is Omaha, since I've actually been there a number of times. Clean city, friendly people, kind of conservative and small-townish.

Don't hate you, but don't agree. Lincoln is in the Midwest. Sorry. It has the same terrain around it as Omaha or Des Moines, etc...

Voted Omaha. But St Louis and then Lincoln (yes Lincoln) would be second set.

I voted Milwaukee. Good beer , lots of sports and activites, culture, big lake, lots of outdoor activites, there is very little traffic for the size of the city and Chicago is a hop skip and a jump away

How in the world can you say Lincoln is not MW, but Wichita is? If anything Wichita is southern. Or both cities are plane states.

Stop avoiding the truth. The culture is not uniform across the Great PLains, nor is the agriculture or the dialect. Texas and OKlahoma are heavily different from Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, and North Dakota as far as agriculture, weather, dialect, etc. are concerned. Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota all by far have the most in common with the Midwest.
