They arent scenic to you, but to the rest of us who enjoy more things in life, do find it scenic and impressive.
I'm glad you find it scenic and impressive. For Midwest standards, it certainly is.

The point is that the Midwest is the flattest and most boring part of the country. This wouldn't be considered scenic in most parts of the country.

He only has a negative outlook on it because he made an asinine comment, and instead of admitting he was wrong, he continues to dig himself a larger and larger hole.

That is a personal preference, you are more of a negative person and a nay sayer so you won't enjoy as many thing out of life compared to most people who love to live or visit in the midwest.

It's a beautiful drive by anyone's standards, regardless of where you're from. Like I said, I have never met anyone from anywhere who took Hwy 35 up the Wisconsin border and came away less than impressed.

You're right, it is a personal preference.

But I bet you it's the most common personal preference in the U.S. Most people will agree that, say, Indiana is less scenic than, say, California.

And I have been to the supposedly "stunning" portions of the Midwest (Michigan Upper Peninsula, Northern Wisconsin, etc.) They're fine, but nothing special. Not worth a 7 hour drive to see some hills and trees.

I've seen Great Lakes beaches on Lake Michigan and while they are beautiful, no way are they more beautiful than many ocean beaches throughout the country and world (you mentioned Jamaica). Talk about homerism. Wow.
Meh, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Michigan beaches do have something those others do not, and some of us find that quite enjoyable.
