Midwest USA Holidays
From Chicago to Yellowstone National Park, the mighty Midwest USA is full of urban and natural wonders. It’s also the perfect place to start the road trip of a lifetime – after all, it’s where the iconic Route 66 starts. So when you’re done reflecting in The Windy City’s renowned ‘The Bean’ art installation, you can hit the tarmac, taking in St Louis, Minneapolis, Yellowstone, the Black Hills National Park and the mighty Mount Rushmore. The four 60-foot-high sculptures of America’s early leaders are one of the most well-known attractions in the country and gazing up at their features will be a moment you’ll never forget…

Where to Go in the Midwest USA
The Midwest USA covers a vast and varied region that stretches from the peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the vibrant cities of St Louis and Chicago.
