There is no better time than right now to experience the best that the Midwest has to offer. Whether you are in Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Nebraska or Missouri, this is a beautiful time of year. Nature is getting dressed in the most beautiful hues of yellow and red, slightly tinted with hints of magenta and orange. This is the time to pack your bags for a road trip and exploring the scenic roads.
Custer State Park is situated in South Dakota. The park offers many great hikes through the hills and prairies, the most spectacular scenery and an abundance of wildlife. This is indeed the home to elk, bison, antelope and bighorn sheep. Diarize your stay next year for the Buffalo Roundup & Arts Festival, when festival-goers are treated to the fantastic display as cowgirls and cowboys gather the 1 300 bison living in the park.
Buttered or sprinkled with salt, grilled or boiled, you have to have corn on the cob while exploring the beauty of Wisconsin. Here at Dane’s County Farmer’s Market, you will be able to purchase some cheese curds and other fresh ingredients and if cooking isn’t your thing, then rather sit down for a meal at one of the best farm-to-table eateries in Madison.
Whether you are just a fan or more deeply devoted as a sports better with some money dabbled on the odds, this is a football country, and it is football season. Here the severe punter can not only bet on but also attend the most exciting games between some of the best. Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears or the Indianapolis Colts are often the centre of attention whether it is at a live game or a vibrant sports bar.
Apples, Apples and More Apples
The Midwest is an agricultural treasure and crabs are undoubtedly some of the gems in the crown jewels of the region. Many farms offer apple picking adventures. Spending time under the clear blue skies, breathing in the freshest air and picking your fresh fruit from the trees, ready to crunch your teeth right into it, to get to the sweetest melodies of deliciousness. Another hot topic during this time of year is apple pie baking. Apple pie is a great treat and baking the best is serious business around here. Serving only the best à la mode, which translates to being served with fresh cream on top.
Spending time here in late November then stay a little longer and sit down at one of the many tables stacked with the most fabulous Thanksgiving treats. Green beans and pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffed turkey and only the best you can desire. This is a time to spend together, building bonds over a hearty meal, a time of being truly grateful for all the blessings in your life.
