It's no surprise that the Midwest is often called America's Heartland.

There’s something for everyone to love here, like our affordable housing, stunning geography, friendly residents and excellent schools. Here are just a few more reasons to call the Midwest home:

  • Big-city access. We enjoy most of the amenities found in large metropolitan areas without all the big-city hassles. Plus, the cost of living is lower. If you start missing the hustle and bustle, you’re never more than an afternoon drive from Chicago, Minneapolis or Kansas City.
  • A sense of community. With family-friendly neighborhoods and a passionate sports culture, Midwestern towns cultivate a sense of belonging. You’ll have infinite choices for joining the fun, from intramural sports to local clubs to small town festivals. And there’s always more room for fans to cheer on the local sports teams.
  • Culture. There are many museums and historical monuments to experience. And if you like art, the Midwest has you covered with top-notch art museums and fairs.
  • Outdoor adventure in four seasons. Skiing and sledding in the winter, boating and hiking in the summer–with its diverse landscapes and plentiful lakes and rivers, the Midwest has countless opportunities to get outside and play.
