Going to repeat some, they really are pretty awe inspiring IMO, so Pictured Rocks and Sleeping Bear Dunes in MI, Letchworth Park in NY get my vote.
I'll add the underground lake at Sweetwater TN although I have yet to see it in person, but I love caves! http://infactcollaborative.com/wp-co...s-Lost-Sea.jpg
While not actually in the middle of the country, I'd also suggest a visit to a southern cypress swamp if you like eerily haunting yet beautiful places.

Kitch indeed, but man when we went here we were really disappointed.

The corn is really just the outside facade, you go in and there is this huge gymnasium of kiosks of vendors hawking stuff. It was on the way to everywhere else we were going, but if we took that route again I would not stop again.

Maybe it's changed??

I take it by "no coasts" you don't mean the North Coast.

Any Great Lake viewed from any angle or elevation
mountains in Tennessee and Kentucky
dairy farms in Wisconsin
Grant Park in Chicago
driving along the Ohio River in Ohio and Indiana
vineyards in Erie County, Pa., and Chautauqua County, N.Y.
along the upper Susquehanna and Allegheny rivers in New York and Pennsylvania
the view of Cleveland's skyline from Edgewater Park
the view of Cincinnati's skyline from the top of Sycamore Street or from Devou Park in Covington
the view of Dayton's skyline from the Dayton Art Institute

Neither is Michigan really, or it's kinda out of the way if you're going cross country. At least they qualify as not on the coast.
