Very well done, that dude is straight ignorant. It seems like that people need a region, a city or a state to America's whipping boy and it always seems like the Midwest is it. Plus, how can you judge a great drive or a great place from passing through on the turnpike or interstate? Maybe I don't get it.

I guess looking at fashion magazines for that poster, hasn't served them very well. Fun to look at, but doesn't sharpen the brain, it seems.

I'd be glad that at least there's greenery and trees. Want boring? Try driving through a flat plain with NO TREES.

US 27 from South Bay to 75 in Broward is pretty bad.

The Everglades? Naw, that is scenic compared to the Midwest. That highway stretch has trees and water, and it's only 20 miles long. Try driving for 600 miles and seeing nothing but wheat fields. Then you know what bad is.

I live in WI, and I have never seen a wheat field here. I do think they're beautiful, though.

There are no trees. It's flat and barren, just sugar cane farms.

I'm not sure which part of US-27 you are talking about. The urban part or the part in the Everglades Wildlife Management Area. But none of it looks particularly barron to me. It's pretty flat, but it's Florida. What else can you expect. LOL.

Clearly, you haven't traveled the Midwest very well. If you had, you wouldn't have such a bias. Wait, you, actually probably would. NO two states are the same, and some of them, are very scenic...Great Lakes States, in particular. I think you just have a bias, though, and want to just assume the Midwest is all barren and flat. You would be completely wrong, though....somehow, I think you wouldn't care, but it doesn't lend much toward your credibility.

Okay, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said Midwest. For the record, this is roughly the area I was referring to.
