Check out some of these great Midwest-related stories I read online during this past month:
Tips for Visiting the Gateway Arch-Sarah offers a few inside tips about making the most of your visit to the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri at her Wandering Off blog.
An Anything by Lazy Sunday on the White River-Join Karalee on her kayak tour of Indiana’s White River on the 8 Great Towns blog.
So Much to do at Spring Mill State Park-I always remember the date of the launch pad fire that claimed the lives of the three astronauts preparing for the Apollo 1 mission at Cape Canaveral in Florida as it happened on my birthday (January 27). Indiana native Gus Grissom was one of those astronauts, so I found Nicole’s story about the Grissom Memorial and other Spring Mill Park attractions at the Indiana Insider blog especially interesting.
Summer Sky Entertainment-I sometimes take photos of clouds, but I don’t think I’ve managed any nearly as dramatic as Fargo photographer Don Such. Check out Andrea’s story about Don’s photo adventure at North Dakota’s Horizontal-Lines blog.
Historic Buildings along Fort Street-Detroit has an amazing wealth of beautiful architecture, and the ever-observant Charlie checks out some great gems as he traces the development of Detroit’s expansion and the evolution of the city’s architecture during one of his two-wheeled adventures at his Bikes, Books & A Little Music blog.
A Day in Yellow Springs-Ohio’s Hippie Enclave-Several people suggested that I check out Yellow Springs in southwest Ohio, and Amanda’s story about the town at A Dangerous Business makes this quirky, artsy town with a history that includes being a stop on the Underground Railroad sounds like somewhere I really would like to check out.
Roosevelt Park in Detroit-I’ve seen so many photos of the ruined Michigan Central Station posted as an example of what some people feel is wrong with Detroit, but I found this particular story at Visualingual about a park’s revival taking place in the shadow of the hulking ruin intriguing.
