Best Places to Visit in the Midwestern United States

When you’re traveling overseas from the UK to visit the U.S., you might not necessarily think about the Midwest as being a must-go region, but it’s actually a part of the country that has a lot to offer both domestic and international travelers.

One of the best ways to see the Midwest is to do a road trip.

You can start in Detroit and rent an RV and go from there. Starting in Detroit tends to work well because it’s a major airline hub, so it’s easy to get to from overseas.

If this is something you’re considering, the following are some spots worth checking out during your trip.

Enjoy Detroit

If you’re starting in Detroit, you should take some time to enjoy the city itself. Detroit has somewhat of a bad reputation, following its fall from glory as the automobile capital of the world, but in recent years there’s been’ a lot of effort to revitalize the once booming city.

It’s now becoming a hub for young professionals and artists, and that means there’s a burgeoning cultural scene that includes cafes and museums. There’s also some great architecture and sprawling old mansions if you’re interested in that sort of thing, like Fair Lane, which is known as The Henry Ford Estate.

Bayfield, Wisconsin

For outdoor enthusiasts, there’s Bayfield, Wisconsin, which is on Lake Superior and opens the path to the Apostle Islands.

Bayfield is all the way at the tip of Wisconsin, but the islands that it’s part of are known as the “Jewels of Lake Superior.” Depending on the season you can explore the sea caves that are there, hike, camp and scuba dive. There’s also sailing, and six historic lighthouses.

Mackinac Island, Michigan

Mackinac Island is historically beautiful, as well as being naturally beautiful.

Mackinac has the look and feel of a charming old town and visitors to the island travel by horse, bike or foot.

Mackinac was one of the premier vacation destinations during the Victorian era, and the wealthy came from Detroit as well as Chicago and Buffalo to enjoy the island.

Chicago, Illinois

Chicago isn’t as under the radar as some of the other destinations on this list, but it’s definitely a can’t-miss if you’re visiting the U.S. from overseas.

Chicago is one of the biggest cities in the U.S. and when you’re there, you should visit the Skydeck Chicago located in Willis Tower. If you’re not too afraid of heights, you can step onto The Ledge, which is a glass box that puts you more than 1,300 feet above the ground below.

Other must-dos in Chicago include the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd Aquarium, and Magnificent Mile, filled with some of the best shopping in the world.

Finally, if time allows you should also think about St. Louis. St. Louis features the iconic Gateway Arch, but there’s more to this Midwest city. You can go to the Anheuser-Busch Brewery for example, or do a full pub crawl around what’s called The Loop. You can also take in a Major League Baseball Game at Busch Stadium, home to the St. Louis Cardinals.
