30 Things Every Midwesterner Should Experience
See the lights
See the waiting white beacon of the Cana Island Lighthouse (left), a Door County, Wisconsin, icon. Walk the rock causeway leading to the tiny chunk of land on which it stands.
See the Chicago skyline twinkle at night from atop the sparkling 150-foot Ferris wheel on Navy Pier. Six bucks gets you one panoramic, seven-minute rotation.
See the streetlights glint off the chrome of a perfectly restored classic street rod during the Route 66 Festival's City Nights Cruise (held in late September) in Springfield, Illinois.
