Where America Smiles

The sprawling states of the Midwest have a reputation for being warm and open. Enjoy the friendly vibe as you walk along Chicago’s “Magnificent Mile” and savor homemade fudge (a local specialty) on a horse-and-buggy ride across Mackinac Island. Cruise through South Dakota’s Custer State Park on a buffalo safari and take in the splendor of Mount Rushmore. There’ll be plenty of smiles to return along the way.
