Upper Midwest

Middle of America, All-Around Favorite

As far as the eye can see, the Midwest welcomes visitors to thousands of the greatest of lakes, farmland that nourishes mankind, wide-open prairies and stately monuments. There's a spirit of adventure that sweeps through the bustling streets of Midwestern cities, where visitors encounter top-notch museums and All-American restaurants. Small-batch ice creams are found throughout the Midwest's rural countryside, and great fairs and festivals are as much a staple of a visit to the Midwest as is an adventurous trip across its rugged backcountry.

Select Registry properties in the Midwest stretch out across and around the regions plains and lakes. A boutique hotel and an urban inn live off the energy of their cities. B&Bs lie within the shadow of the moonlight streaking off nearby lakes. Country inns - some former farmhouses - are within steps of spring-fed lakes, caves and waterfalls.
