Readers' 15 Favorite Midwest Getaways
Can't decide on one Midwest location for a summer vacation? Try Roxine Hild's approach:
"We love to get into one of our classic cars and use the glove compartment map from the 1940s or '50s to road trip. It's amazing that many of the roads on the old maps are still there, although they may have a new number. We haven't gotten lost yet! Every small town in the Midwest has something to offer; perhaps it's a cafe or bakery, courthouse, unique shop or local museum."
