30 Things Every Midwesterner Should Experience
Hear rustles and honks
Hear the gentle rustling of late-summer corn shifting in a breeze from within the Field of Dreams near Dyersville, Iowa. Walk into the very field the movie's ghost players emerged from deep enough to get the full effect (left), but not so far you get lost. By August and September, it's taller than you are.
Hear the powerful, jarring honk of an immense ship's horn as it makes its way through the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, the world's largest single-step lock system, located in America's third-oldest continuous settlement. The ships don't need to honk anymore. They have radios. They do it for you, the watchers of the hardworking cargo ships entering and exiting tremendous Lake Superior.
