From the Great Lakes to the Great Plains, a new anthology helps travelers re-discover their home state – even during a pandemic.
I’ve finally done something I’ve always wanted to do – I am becoming a published author! I’ve helped to co-write the Midwest Road Trip Adventures, which is available for pre-order now and is being released early November 2020. Along with this book, I will be co-authoring three other books as part of a Midwest travel series. You can preorder Midwest Road Trip Adventures.
What is Midwest Road Trip Adventures about?
The book takes travelers along some of the most storied highways and byways in the nation, including The Great River Road and Route 66. Stops include historic lighthouses along the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio, canyons in Kansas, crystal clear springs in Michigan, Underground Railroad history in Illinois, Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, and authentic fish fries in Wisconsin’s Door County. Movie fans can visit the ballpark from “A League of Their Own” in Indiana or tour Iowa covered bridges showcased in the “The Bridges of Madison County.”
I think of the Midwest Road Trip Adventures as a book of pre-planned road trips across 12 states. Not only is it providing unique opportunities to see sights and explore each state, but it provides readers with planned road trips. The guesswork, planning, and researching are taken away, allowing readers more time to travel without the hassle.
What is an anthology?
The anthology is penned by authors who live and work in the states they cover. The group connected as members of The Midwest Travel Network, a consortium of writers and bloggers who specialize in the region. I am personally writing the chapters for Indiana and I’m excited to share all of my road trip adventures with you!
As an Indiana native, I’ve put my personal experiences into this book to provide readers with the best! That’s exactly what each of us has done with every state. In Indiana, road trips will take you to sights you may have never seen before. The trips include the best coffee shops, gigantic sized foods, waterfalls, Indiana heritage, sleeping in 1920s Pullman train cars, Lake Michigan & Ohio River Scenic stops, underground railroad church, hidden parks & sites.
“Now more than ever, road trips are a popular way to travel! We have created a book full of road trip ideas, think of it as pre-planned itineraries for every state in the Midwest. Recommended for you by local travel experts.“ says Jamie Ward of fieldsandheels.com, author of Indiana’s section of the anthology.
