The Midwest of America is home to the wide open plains of the prairie states, which make for rolling green countryside that shines in the sun. Due to this idyllic landscape, it’s a place which has become a hotspot among those wanting to discover the outdoors. It is also why it’s a great idea to rent one of these cool places to stay while you are here, as it will place you right in the heart of the wilderness. Swim in the Lake of the Ozarks when the weather starts to warm up, or head to Shawnee National Forest to follow hiking trails, and to catch excellent countryside views. You can even stop by the shores of Lake Michigan, where you can hike around the water’s edge, or fish in its depths.
