I know, it started in Detroit, it's in Cleveland. It's in Columbus Ohio Chicago it's kind of in those Rust Belt. Midwest states. Superman ice cream being blue and red and yellow supposedly the Blue Moon. Ice cream is a part of the Superman blue. Something I'm fascinated about finding now and I may have traveled, North when travel gets a little bit easier, cuz you can get Blue, Moon ice cream up in Wisconsin.

"On the boardwalk side so they look like old fishing shanties saying. Oh it's the the brown weathered wooden teas that some are still definitely used for fishing because charter. Fishing is incredible here But then some of those returned to cafes little coffee shops and mom and pop stores in olive oil stores and women's boutique. So you have the the beautiful blue harbor on one side. And then he had the fishing shanties on the other. And it's it's kind of a contradiction between the two but you see both of them on the cheboygan river and it's just it's it's something you find a lotta people down there. Just walking the past or riding their bikes or walking the dog. Stay on there. it's very pet friendly down in that area Some of the restaurants have outdoor dining and they have a section that is dining area. Just for you want to bring your pet with you so That's very nice. We we really liked that area. And it's kind of the hub of activity in the summertime. That sounds it sounds almost perfectly coastal because when you think of speech getaways you think. Of those big wide boardwalks with the shops in the restaurants and people right no roller skating or biking or wachner dogs so it sounds like that you know that east coast west coast getaway. It is in the middle of the country. it is. it's right there in the big thing with it being on the waterfront. Everything is so walkable so you you park your car We recently opened Our visitors center so Visit sheboygan just opened a brand new visitor center. That's right on the riverfront. So it's on the main street eighth street in downtown and the riverfront so you're encouraging people to park their car here We have a trolley. that runs all summer long. It's a complimentary trolley that around the downtown in down to the marina and down to some of the south peers. Sections brings you all the way up and down the main streets even with onto your farmers market So be really encourage people to park their vehicle in either take the trolley or we have segue rentals here. We'll be having the stand paddle board rentals here. The kayak rentals. So it's getting to be a very central hub where you can just come downtown parking vehicle while around for the day in and spend a day spending evening in it's it's very focused on a lot of the whole district downtown and waterfronts. That sounds absolutely lovely. So if people.

What expect visiting in the summer. They still can expect the same great views you know again. We really have one of the most unique. Waterfronts again is the way that we are situated. We do have a lot With our waterfronts sheboygan's always been pretty innovative with do net. So many people over the years didn't take advantage of the waterfront sheboygan has so much is your at around. The cheboygan river and lake michigan We have basically two different beaches. We have the cheboygan river that runs through the metal on that empties into lake michigan but our north beach is the big sandy beaches. That's where the surfers usually go. And there's no point but there's a pave path paved path that people can walk up through there. You're gonna find people from morning noon and night out there. Walking walking their dogs playing on the beach having the fires So it's a very active area. That's where our demand parkas so. It's a big green space with Couple of different playgrounds the beach volleyball So that's kind of the central location on north beach From north beach you can walk out to our lighthouse from there so it is a paved path that you can walk out. The peer out to the lighthouse in our marinas rate their status really active area for people being on the beach for going on the lighthouse for for docking their. It's on the other. Side of the river is south. Be each and that's a little bit quieter As far as being on the beach and in having you know sandy beaches and building your sandcastles or being adventurous playing lake michigan but the south beach is also The very popular area for kite boarding so Cape boarding windsurfing Some of that other activities goes on unselfish beach so you will find if the winds are right in the thermals right that they will be on the south beach so you see a lot of that activity We have like an unofficial beach. They're called caters beach. And that's where the answer. I go home and like i said boarding and win boarding which is two totally separate. Things is there.

You can So we kind of evolved over the years with them. They created what was called the dairy lands. You don't of course you gotta play up on the plan on the dairyland surf classic which they started in nineteen eighty eight So you know through word of mouth and the you know the surfers kind of have their own thing and they go back and forth between florida and california and going to mexico and you really build up the reputation while the more they started talking about it and the more they got to know all the other surfers and surfers are tight. Knit communities stick together. They started bringing people.

Neither do you might notice you. Also local market and cleaning on top of that. I think clean companies are probably two years behind the curve in terms of marketing digital marketing Late with everything so as long as you're on pace with the way to the marketing is going. You're already ahead of the competition. So it's not that hard in my opinion to beat most of the competition just by doing based foundation stuff and a lot of local companies.

It was in two thousand eight when the economy was melting down here in america we were really feeling a lot of restlessness at the time. So we sort of collectively decided as a family to take a big risk. We decided to get rid of all of our sort of consumerist lifestyle stuff and we took our young family to the ancient croatian mountain village of my ancestors in it was. It was a pretty amazing. Right how long did you stay in. Croatia trump. We were in the country itself for about seven months. The majority of that in the village itself is your husband croatian. Also he's norwegian alsacien but he sort of adopted my ancestors for the time we were in the village. It was really like hitting the reset button for our family. They're in what way. Well jim and i have a fairly modest lifestyle here in the midwest but even a family like us sort of in our american culture tends to super size everything and we were just ready to kind of get away from the american buzz and we went back to the most basic way of living. We were living in a small pen sione in this very small village that felt like it was suspended in amber since my great grandparents left and it really gave us the time and space to connect as a family we wanted less business in our world and we thought there can be no better way of doing that than going to a place where there was really nothing going on We had heard a few things about mirka pie research and a scouting trip and indeed.

"Back over my own. Kansas travels and looking at the tour guide the travel guide and things like that. It made me realize how much i still haven't experienced in kansas. And how much. I really need to get back there but if people are thinking about planning a trip to kansas in twenty twenty one what are maybe three highlights of a that are coming up for this year. That maybe they should consider. I'd say the twentieth anniversary of the santa fe trails happening here in twenty twenty one. Great stop is mahaffey stage Stop in historic site which is in olathe kansas. It's actually the only open remaining stage coach. Stop from the santa fe trail. You're going to go there. You can see experience. What life was like on the santa fe trail and stagecoach travel also council grove which is in the flint hills. As they they have great santa fe trail history. There there they have some festivals going on One of them. I think start july sixteen through the seventeen. There's a gunfight that'll be happening in some reenactments there'll be some famous old west folks wandering through town. There's going to be live. Music and food great bend. Kansas also has many events planned. there's actually a website. It's like two hundred santa fe trail anniversary. Kansas is where you can see it. Just a slew of events happening across the state exciting. Yes i know you said name. A few another one would be medicine. Lodge peace treaty. This is a festival that happens every three years in a huge huge event so eh taught First starts off with this large reenactment. Like i say largely not meant like it's a large professional reenactment It starts off You know it has the tribal indians. Kinda has some lewis and clark a reenactment parts. There's some wagon. Travel there some cavalry rescues. But then also just a part of the three day event. There's an intertribal powell. There's education about native americans in the plains. Tribes there's rodeo. There's parades every morning. I mean this town really puts on a big show and that was in a double check the dates on that one. That one is september. Twenty four th through the twenty six and Happens in medicine lodge. Which is in the beautiful gypsum hills of kansas. And if i can name one more Kansas is home to the walnut valley. Bluegrass music festival. It happens in winfield. Kansas in it is the third weekend in september. And i can tell you this event you have generations four generations that have gone to this festival and it is centered around bluegrass. But there's a lot of people that have gone there like. I'm not the biggest bluegrass fan. I go for the experience. There's people that camp out a month in advance or month total before the event they have this thing called the land rush in. That's when everybody is rushing to the campgrounds and throughout the day you have your main stages you also have. It's also the world championship of flat guitar. Picking that happens there but also the magic comes at night when people are being in you. Have these set campgrounds. They'll have their names and they all have little stages on and you can see a merging bluegrass artists. It can be four in the morning and you might see a twelve year old boy picking his heart out there like. Oh my gosh. I can't believe i'm experiencing this and then winfield itself is fun There's a bunch of trails and outdoor activities to do while you're there for the festival Cool foodi stops.

"midwest" Discussed on Exploring the Midwest with Jody Halsted

"Take a screen shot and tag me on instagram. At jodi halstead and leave just a few kind words. I really appreciate it now. Let's start exploring the midwest. I everyone thinks so much for tuning in again to the exploring the mid west broadcast now. If you have ever driven across kansas from the east to the west you begin to understand the sentiment that inspired brewster higley to penn my western helm which was later known as home on the range. My guest today is coby. Carry the pr and communications manager for kansas tourism hobie. Thanks so much for joining me today. Thank you for having me. So i am really excited to talk about kansas. Because it's a state that if you enter along the eastern border at the mississippi river it feels very very urban but as you continue west you really you encounter those wide open spaces and there are times that you can feel like you are just completely alone. Yes that's true but also people mistakenly think that western kansas that there's not stop to see and do and culture and so you can't have that feeling of being alone buying that soulless speak also these hidden gems all across kansas. So do you think there are any misconceptions. That people have when they when they think about kansas. Oh absolutely that were flat. That were boring. There's nothing to do you know we. We hear those words quite frequently and they're just so wrong wrong now. Let's start with that whole you know. The state is flat. Kansas has some amazing rock formations. That really feel almost like utah. Yes absolutely so we have a new state park. It opened two years ago. It's called little jerusalem badly state park and it's part of the badlands and it's this beautiful park with cool about his as you're driving up you can't see it. It's like once you walk up and hit alleged and you can just see all these nine. Aubrey chalk formations. It's beautiful people. Don't think about it when they think about kansas. There's also in that area of western. Kansas there's monument rocks there's castle rocks and all that's from. Kansas was actually the inland sea. So these are the rocks that remaining from when it was was this inlands dean. It's also a great great spot for a dinosaur lovers. There's been great archaeology. This happened in that part of the state but also in north central kansas. We have rock city. Which are these mounds of dakota rock formations. There's mushroom rock state park. So there's there's lots to sink in this it's not flat we have rock formations. We have mount sunflower. Which is the highest point in kansas. And then anybody who has ever done any gravel grinding. That is like the grabble mountain biking type stuff have done like the dirty kanza trail will tell you. Kansas absolutely not flat. And you know when you when you talk about how you can't really see The badlands area. Until you're on top of it you kind of have to wonder what those pioneers and early.

"Need to be sure to try and taste when they visit illinois. You know i'm gonna give a shadow to I have my book your lago mar chinos in your out. Because that's a huge part of illinois history. They've been there since. Nineteen o eight Immigrants that came to the midwest and The actual they have old school soda fountain in the hot fudge recipe that the us is the recipe they started using in nineteen eighteen. So i like that. Yeah i like that. Slice of history in at that recipe is still being used today. Ns delicious by the way but other playing state you know they have lunch there. They also have You handmade chocolates there so too which is kind of interesting and so did not. I mean it's it's the treasurer. So i recommend a visit but yeah i like the hot fudge sundaes there. So that's definitely something i recommend and i'm also going to divulge what i'm eating next week on my trip. I'm going to go to avantis. Impurity to have the pizza bread. So i went to college in peoria and We going loaded up on the avantis pizza over because it was affordable with the breaded avantis delicious. And so we go there every time. We're in peoria we go and we haven't avantis pizza. Bread can i. What can i add one more thing. Talk to bob being around for a while. So in. Beverly they have i forget the name of the original rainbow cone. That is very famous chicago. And i think they've been around for like sixty years as well So definitely something to check out those who have the week. We're in beverly so again it's a dislo chicago Southern i guess other neighborhood in chicago so we have touched on so so much and i know there's so much more we could talk about but if somebody is planning to visit illinois in twenty twenty one what is the one thing you would recommend that they add to their itinerary. Cindy i know you have something pretty specific to add. I do and i wonder gone to that. If you are in springfield too you also should have on the pony shoe glow. even what matters or ham with french fries in the cheese sauce over it. Dr seuss kind is my favorite place to go and a pony is half a shoe is a And is that in of if you like Seeing old farm machinery actually at work in the field every two years they haven't event In ran tool illinois at the former nude airforce base in salt. The has to true progress yet. It's the lean on the third weekend in in august. And it's unlike anything that you will ever see before it's right before the farm progress show in. It's an opportunity to see what farming was lied. from it's like fifty years prior so it would have been like in nineteen fifty one while farming is like so it's a real opportunity to see. Ceo machinery. they have it just on display in the now also working in you want might want to rent a golf cart. You're going to come because it's a huge huge grounds that it's just if you'd like to see me way. Farming was. This is a real opportunity to do it. Hopefully right now the plans are that is gonna take place of course with covid things can change. Always check the the website at the website. Hurtig what do you think people should add to their illinois tennessee this year so this is something that i haven't been but i'm just waiting for the weather to clear up and things to open up but there is adventure park in lock lockport illinois legacy adventure pockets basically about sixty plus acres. They have the pinball things you can try. They have an obstacle course zip-lining so if anybody thought illinois and the chicago area didn't have adventure this as it. It's a sixty plus acres so you can spend a couple of days. News break experience family for sure short and i know that you have a pretty special place that you think people should visit. Yes i would say to visit kochi mount state historic sites. That's actually a unesco world heritage sites. It is the largest mississippians settlement north of mexico so are also known as the mound builders and there's over a hundred miles that are there. There's just an amazing amount amount. That are still intact there. So i think that's a really great place to check out. Their interpretive center is absolutely amazing has interactive multimedia exhibits as wells artifacts. That they have found locally. So it's entirely fascinating once again. Though is kobe. you need to make sure of Arrangements needed to make. I think you have to reserve time. Slat to go into debt ever center would definitely. I wouldn't give bit. Also monks mound is is the tall prominent malnourished and you actually see people running up and down the stairs because that's the one mound you climb up to one mound you can claim and so we might see people exercising up and down but i recommend going on that mountain because it has a great view of st louis from on top of that mount which is kind of like a little hidden thing and also I also recommend birding. Interestingly in the area also there's hiking trails and then you're not gonna be too far from the world's largest hedge model so regretted that one out that's in collinsville illinois so you have to check it out when you're in the areas ladies. I can't thank you enough for sharing your illinois knowledge. There's obviously so much to do an illinois so much that we couldn't even touch like i said we didn't. We didn't talk about route. Sixty six at all. We didn't even mention my favorite place. Which is our sin in monticello. Which is a beautiful estate Like an english state and they have these great gardens. Public art in it's free to visit Said the champagne area.

"Unique visitor experience for people. So i i. If i had tried to sum it up perhaps more succinctly than i've done rambling here for minute. It's really that. There is a wide variety of things for people to see and do in missouri and i really think that vacationers of all types a we'll find something they can enjoy hearing the show me state and you know when you get out of the cities and into the small towns Hannibal is one that people probably have heard of and know very well. Due to mark twain a boon ville is a place that my husband and i we actually used to take little romantic getaways there to bnb so there are many great small towns to visit as well. So you're really not that are from kind of a center of of something to do someplace to kind of based yourself and explore out from absolutely no le. Let's on the topic of small towns. We can look at a place like hermann missouri. For example which is well known for its german heritage and cultural opportunities there it's in the heart of missouri's wine country region. There's some big festivals that happened throughout the year. And really you know thinking about its proximity. It's about an hour and fifteen minutes or so away from saint louis. It's not very far here from jefferson. City missouri's capital in central missouri Hannibal as you noted the boyhood home of mark twain again. Just a couple hours drive north of saint louis. It's a great day trip and utilizing highway thirty six which runs across the northern part of missouri If you go up from kansas to kansas city excuse me to saint joseph's and then go across on highway thirty six. A hannibal is a relatively easy. Drive there along that highway. Thirty six core or there's some really interesting stories and communities there We call that the way of american genius. Because people like mark twain walt disney. Jc penney a have ties to different communities along their home of sliced bread is in chillicothe e so us some really wonderful small towns a couple of others you know of note are saint genevieve which is home to missouri's european settlement That has a lot of french. Heritage and cultural cultural opportunities there and Augusta is another area. That's kind of over by which we touched on. That's another big part of missouri's wine country in Kind of north central or missouri. Now i used to actually live for a very short time in the northern part of missouri. I did not know chile. Coffee was the home of sliced bread. Often we lived very nearby in princeton. And i also had not heard the name for that you know highway thirty six. The and you just lost the the way of american genius. Yeah their way of genius. I've never heard that before. And i think that's really an interesting kind of thought when you're thinking about travelling to missouri that you can follow that that trail if you will and discover the things that came from the area speaking of trails there other places that you can kind of follow along that route sixty six kind of cut through the southern part of missouri. But what other maybe pathways or almost itinerary based kind of trails would missouri had to offer sure so backup real quickly The you talk about route. Sixty six at cuts a pretty good portion across missouri from saint louis is kind of the eastern edge of way route sixty six enters the show me state and then it kind of in southwestern missouri down by the joplin area. And there's a lot to see and do along the way they're know meramec caverns in the stanton areas longtime Route sixty six destination for people and communities like raleigh and saint robert and fort leonard. Wood areas In springfield missouri..

The cicadas will emerge from the ground, shed their skins and partake in a month long mating ritual, making quite the scene, climbing trees and singing mating songs as loud as 100 decibels.

"Like susan. A you like state park. That is a little more difficult to get to and probably not as many hiking trails as i task. Yeah so it's actually a national park. It's voyageurs national. Park is kind of unique because actually over. A third of the park is only accessible by water. So you can paddle or rent a boat or bring your own boat. But it's really meant to be explored by water It's kind of located central minnesota along the border with canada. So it's also true northwards experience that you that you wanna have here in minnesota. That's you know that's one of those places. I think that people don't realize number one how vast it is and number two how dark it can get both voyagers national park and the boundary waters canoe area are certified as international dark sky places. And that's that's a hard certification to get because we have so much ambient light from so many things. And i find that to be really exciting. Minnesota has not one but two dark sky areas a huge designation for those both to cheese relating for stargazers or if you want to chase the northern lights. It's a great opportunity here in minnesota speaking of chasing the northern lights. How often do those show up. And how north do you actually have to be to see them optimally. Yes so you can travel to norway or alaska or any of those places. We also have the northern lights here in minnesota from between around october to march. And you look has to be on your side of the start. The skies have to be clear but really the northern border lung canada up the gun flint trail near grand marais cook county. Also were grandma says and then voyagers national park in the boundary. Waters are all airings. If you're lucky you can chase them and hopefully get a glimpse here in minnesota and minnesota has something that most people probably know about with national parks and that's like a stamping system or something like that right. Can you tell us a little bit about the minnesota state park club. The passport club is an awesome way to explore. We have seventy five state parks and recreation areas. I've been fortunate to live in a number of different states than i can say that minnesota state parks or some of the best that i've experienced in so you earn a stamp at each of the different perks that you visit kind of forces you to try out some new parks or explore new areas and bonus you earn free nights of camping as you hit milestones along spelling your passport so it's just a really fun way to get out and exploit the state that is really i didn't know about the three campaign. Minnesota also has some really great off..
