One reason I can't live in in the Midwest: I enjoy having hills and mountains.

Naw, she is a troll who cruises the rural/small town area of the forum and hates everything not LA. Spews stereotypes like fact and hasn't been to most areas she expounds on being so bad. Frankly with the garbage she tosses out and the derogatory language used, I have to wonder why the Admin allows her to remain a member.

This is such an interesting thread. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and I admit, I love it here. But I have a fascination with everything that is different than me, especially when it comes to people and places. To be honest there is a lot I don't know, especially to my California sensibilities, even places in California are different. I mean, Los Angeles feels different than San Francisco.

Although, my appreciation for America might be a rare one. I've always wanted to visit Kansas city. Is that midwest? Sorry for my ignorance. I want to visit as much as I can. My only qualm is a fear of how people would react to me. I am an asian-hispanic mix, and I don't know how the midwest or southern states would react to me. I just hope that there is someone who would accept me out there. I always thought it would be cool to have a white southern friend. Southern accents are so awesome.

I do have a friend from Wichita. I love it when he tells about life over there.

Kansas City, MO is not bad at all. Lots of cultural attractions and plenty of diversity. However, it is obviously nothing like San Francisco at all.

One can only suppose you've never heard of the Ozark Mountains.

Does the second largest theater district in the country count? How about an Orchestra ranked among the top ten in the world? World class museums? Thriving fine arts scene? National park ten minutes outside of town?
STL has a National Park right smack in the middle of downtown.
Just sayin.

There are plenty of hills in the Midwest, that's for sure.
