Why It’s Great To Live In The Midwest
Life in the Midwest is appreciated. It’s not the hip West Coast or the historic South, but it is America’s Heartland and the home of open skies, rows of corn, and more lakes than you can wrap your head around. What exactly makes the Midwest the place to be?
Still need some convincing? Here are some reasons that the Midwest is just simply the best:
- Midwesterners are friendly. (A lot of people will say they’re THE friendliest people!)
Everyone in the Midwest is genuinely interested in you. They take the time to get to know you and your story. It’s actually scientifically proven. The University of Cambridge did a survey of 1.6 million Americans via Facebook and surveys to prove that Midwesterners are the best.
- Everything in the Midwest is so cheap!
The Midwest is extremely affordable for families and young professionals. There are a lot of mid-size cities you can plant yourself in, but if the metro isn’t your thing, then there are plenty of smaller communities.
- Our Midwestern air sparkles! Not really, but it should.
Yes, there is still pollution here, but the Midwest does have some of the best air quality in the U.S. This part of the region seems pretty satisfied with the quality of air.
- Midwesterners are BIG on family values.
According to 2008 Pew survey and analysis of the U.S. census, the data suggested that about half of all adult Midwesterner residents have spent their entire lives in their hometowns. This is because most of their relatives aren’t more than an hour away.
- The Midwest is home to the very best of higher education. (Well, really just education in general.)
The Midwest has a very impressive list of colleges and universities, along with great primary and secondary educations.
- The Midwest has easy access to a laundry list of big cities.
Sure, New York and California are great, but you don’t need to go there to experience big city living. If you live in the Midwest, you can be in a number of big cities in just a matter of hours such as Kansas City, Chicago, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Denver, etc.
- The Midwest is all about the sports.
Living in the Midwest gives you more than a handful of college and professional teams to support and Midwesterners aren’t shy about their favorites. Not to mention, we take tailgating very seriously.
