Check out some great Midwest-related stories I found online this past month:
Driving into the Ohio Covered Bridge Scene-I love bridges, and I especially love the sense of romance and nostalgia that vintage covered bridges evoke. I've seen a lot of covered bridges in Ohio, but Aaron shares some images of a couple of covered bridges he found in the north-central part of the state we've yet to see ourselves. Check them out at The Adventures of elATLboy blog.
Hike the Pleasant Hill Trail at Ohio's Mohican State Park-Take a walk with Tonya along a trail that starts at a covered bridge in this state park in central Ohio. We've long wanted to visit this park, so I enjoyed seeing these images of the trail at The Traveling Praters blog.
Treehouses and Cabins at The Mohicans-How cool would it be to stay in a treehouse cabin? Michael shares his experience doing just that in central Ohio near Mohican State Park. Check it out at the Discover Ohio blog.
Hocking Hills IQ Quiz: Can You Identify these Landmarks?-Bob put together this nifty photo quiz with 10 images of the beautiful Hocking Hills area in central Ohio. We've visited the waterfalls, caves and trails in the area several times, but there were a good number of places in this post that we haven't been able to visit yet. Check it out at the TrekOhio blog.
See Munising Falls-We visited Munising Falls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula last summer, but Amanda's story about visiting the waterfalls makes it clear that visiting during the winter is an entirely different experience! Check out the images of giant column of ice created by the falls at the Things to do in the U.P blog.
Four Types of Detroit Tours You'll Want to Experience-Dan from Visit Detroit neatly sums up some of the great variety of tours sure to entice and interest Motor City visitors. This list includes many places we ourselves visited and loved over the years. Check it out at the Pure Michigan blog.
Detroit's Historic Boston Edison Neighborhood-Take a look at one of Detroit's beautiful historic neighborhoods. The Boston-Edison neighborhood sits about 5 miles north of downtown Detroit and has some really great early twentieth-century homes. Check out Charlie's story about it at his Bikes, Books & A Little Music blog.
10 Things You Might Not Know About the Cincinnati Music Hall-This beautiful 1878-vintage performance hall in Ohio's Queen City has an interesting and somewhat spooky past. Check out Cassie's rundown on the building and its background at LocalView Cincinnati.
Quirky Attraction: St. Paul Indian Mounds-Scott specializes in finding quirky sites on his travels and shares this tale of Indian burial mounds near downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. Check it out at the Quirky Travel Guy blog.
Collinsville, IL: Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site-Here's yet another Indian burial mound site in the Midwest. Adam finds this World Heritage Site in southern Illinois near downtown St. Louis, Missouri. Check it out at the Visit Flyover Country blog.
Enjoying Conner Prairie's Great Outdoors-We've only visited the Conner Prairie interactive history park once-during a dark and rainy November evening as participants in their acclaimed Follow the North Star Underground Railroad experience. I loved seeing this story about some of Sarah's favorite Conner Prairie sights on a lovely spring day. Check it out at the Visit Hamilton County Indiana blog.
Borchers Egg Casserole-We stayed at Borchers Bed-and-Breakfast in Grayling, Michigan for a weekend of canoeing and hiking in the area. We had this fabulous Egg Casserole for breakfast one morning. but I didn't get the recipe at that time. Kath took care of my oversight and shares Cheri Hunter's recipe for this hearty breakfast meal at Great Lakes Gazette.
