Readers' 15 Favorite Midwest Getaways
Bennett Spring State Park, Missouri
"Bennett Springs State Park, Missouri, is one of my favorite Midwest summer vacation spots. It is not as commercial as some of the other parks we stay in. On our first visit, I 'chased' butterflies with my 35mm camera. My husband enjoys fly-fishing while I read, write or take photos. We stay in a cabin and enjoy eating in the park's dining hall and in [the city of] Lebanon. We also enjoy hiking and riding around the area."
