10 coolest cities in the Midwest
America’s heartland too frequently gets labeled as flyover country -- the states you fly over to get between the East and West coasts.

You didn't iinclude Grand Rapids, the diamond ring hidden in Michigan's mitten...... and you should have! It's west Michigan's beauty coupled with a huge emphasis on the arts: Festival in June, Art Prize, Meijer Gardens. There's great shopping and restaurants galore, plus the big lake a short drive away ..... a great place to visit ...... or live!
Columbus is the world's largest small town, and has been for quite some time. The sidewalks are rolled up at 5. It's all about Ohio State and Ohio State football and state capitol. If it wasn't for those three things, Columbus wouldn't even exist. A lot of kids I went to high school with attended Ohio State, and rhapsodized about how great Columbus is, yet every one of them couldn't wait to come home to the Cleveland area every weekend.
