What is your favorite midwest town in terms of aesthetic appeal?
Burlington Iowa seems nice

If we're talking "towns"; Nebraska City is pretty cool. St. Joe, MO, second.

I've always been a fan of Columbia, Missouri and Carbondale, Illinois myself.

This depends on how much you consider Ohio to be the midwest or not, which seems to be a never ending debate that doesn't get us too far, but Northern Ohio certainly has some charmers:

Chagrin Falls: https://www.google.com/search?q=Chag...yZCzUQ_AUICCgD

Geneva on the Lake: https://www.google.com/search?q=Chag...a+on+the+Lake+

Put in Bay: https://www.google.com/search?q=Chag...ut+in+bay+ohio

Medina: https://www.google.com/search?q=Chag...&q=Medina+Ohio

Burton: https://www.google.com/search?q=Chag...+Ohio+Downtown

However, I'm not sure there's a more charming town anywhere than Mackinac Island, MI.
