It’s time to change that, so cue up a playlist, pack your favorite snacks, and hit the road on one of these top Midwestern road trips, which are sure to highlight the best of America’s pulsing, vibrant heartland.

Great River Road, Wisconsin

The picturesque city of Prescott, situated where the pristine St. Croix River meets the Mississippi River, makes for a great jumping-off point for this road trip. Start at the Great River Road Visitor & Learning Center and drive south along the 250-mile-long National Scenic Byway, which hugs the Mississippi’s curves and bluffs. In addition to pretty views, this area of Wisconsin offers unexpected culinary delights in tiny river towns. Bay City’s Chef Shack is worth a stop, as it’s the brick-and-mortar location for James Beard Award nominee Lisa Carlson and her partner, Carrie Summer. If you can, sit outside on the lovely back patio.
