Chicago, Twin Cities, Madison, Ann Arbor.

On the whole, though, there's nowhere in this region that I really want to live, given the choice.

Ah. Well, try to make the best of it. Personally, as someone who moved to Chicago, I think the Midwest is underrated.

Well, sort of. Chicago isn't really "the Midwest". I mean, it is, but it isn't. It's a bit singular.

Three Rivers, Sturgis, Colon, South Haven, Traverse City, Houghton, Marquette, Hillsdale, and New Buffalo. All in Michigan.

I don't know why there are so many Midwest haters here. I would never want to live anywhere else.

There are cities int he Midwest like the Twin Cities and Minneapolis that are extraordinarily underrated. What would make the region a hell of a lot better is if they weren't so far apart. Not to mention if giants like Detroit were healthy again.

I'm curious as to why so many people always say that they like Madison, WI. It's not a bad city at all, but it would get boring pretty fast unless you're a college student.
