Some call it flyover country but there's a lot to see and do here! We have big cities, small towns, unique foods, lots of nice people, and yes, even beaches! Is anyone going on exchange here or otherwise want to talk about the region?

beaches on Lake Superior in Marquette MI are some of the best beaches I have been to... Florida beaches are nice, but nothing like swimming in fresh water rather than salt water (IMO)

I miss the midwest. While the midwest didn't like me (allergies up the wazoo) I miss it nonetheless.

I talked to a pharmacists in Michigan when I was there last summer and he said that Michigan is a breathing ground for just about every kind of allergy. Thankfully I have no allergies in Tennessee.

I'm allergic to SE Wisconsin. The further southeast I get, the worse it its. I had mild allergy issues in Beloit and Sheboygan, but I always had to take extra meds in Racine. So far so good in Milwaukee, but most things aren't growing yet so we'll see. I'm not optimistic...

Even with Zyrtec and Nasacort my allergies are acting up a bit. We're really giving quite the ringing endorsement for this region, aren't we? :P

I love the midwest, it is fairly awesome. But I really missed mountains while living there. The things that people call mountains are little bumps in the terrain.

Minnesota gets really cold! I spent my exchange year there and we got down to minus 40 degrees celcius. They have the same temperature now. If you have any questions regarding how to deal with cold Winters in the midwest, hit me up!
