“Being in the Midwest, you get the best of all worlds and add your own flavor to it.”
– Big Sean
1. It’s cheap
A few weeks ago I was talking with some Californians who commented on how inexpensive everything in my state is. Aside from the necessity of having to drive everywhere, the Midwest is super cheap. I have a friend whose family owns a small mansion that cost slightly less than half a million to build, something that would be near impossible to do on either coast.
2. It’s beautiful.
While summertime doesn’t last very long, it is spectacular. If you’re into hiking, windsurfing, boating, or mountain biking; you’ll love the scenery.
3. Tons of partying.
University of Iowa is the number two party school in the country, La Crosse had (until recently) the most bars per capita in the entire world, and the State Street Halloween Party in Madison Wisconsin gets over 100,000 attendees a year. Thanks to the low cost of everything bars and clubs are cheap enough for everyone to get into. If you like to rage, you could do a lot worse than the Midwest.
4. The women are suspiciously hot.
Outside Florida, New York, and California there aren’t a lot of hot coastal girls. I’ve never heard a dude say “the women of Rhode Island are amazing.”
In fact, I usually hear guys complain about the appearance and attitude possessed by girls in places like D.C. and Portland. While Midwest women lack the plastic surgery and cosmetic work of Miami girls, they’re still quite attractive. As an added bonus, none of them have the over inflated ego that accompanies girls from places like Los Angeles.
As long as you put in some effort and plan ahead, the Midwest can actually be a ton of fun. Whenever people complain about the area, it’s usually because they haven’t put in an effort to find the region’s more enjoyable features.
