About Midwest Road Trip Adventures:

Midwest Road Trip Adventures 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 boils 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.”

If you know what I have been writing about lately, you know the pandemic has limited where we can travel, so people are really craving new ways to safely experience their own city, state, or region. I am the author of the Wisconsin section of the anthology and co-ordinator of the four-book series of Midwest Travel. “This book provides easy ways for people to discover interesting places close to home.”

I am a member of the Midwest Travel Network and my peers and I all hit the same wall in March when COVID hit. We lost our press trips, speaking engagements, and had to stall most projects we were working on. We were all pretty limited to our own states with quarantine, different state mandates, and mask laws. That is why the anthology is penned by authors who live and work in the states they cover. I headhunted the best of the best from each state in the Midwest – to bring together a consortium of writers and bloggers who specialize in the region.

Sharing stories about the Midwest falls perfectly into the laps of Midwestern writers,” says anthology author and Midwest Travel Network co-owner Lisa Dunham Trudell. “We live here. We work here. Most of us grew up here. It’s more than just a place to us; it’s home. We know the attractions and love sharing stories about them. Who better to tell the stories of the Midwest than the people who live in its backyard?

I wrote the Wisconsin chapter, which details several of my favorite road trips in the state. Readers can walk in the footsteps of Laura Ingalls Wilder, enjoy the beauty of dozens of state parks, learn the best places to grab a safe bite to eat, experience the Native American lifestyle, explore unique shops, and all while traversing the highways and byways of each corner of Wisconsin. I cover the Great River Road, Door County Coastal Byway, Lake Geneva Adventure, and the Wisconsin Lake Superior Byway. 431 miles of adventure for those looking to learn and see more about Wisconsin!
