After Ohio, we hugged the Lake Michigan “coastline” to check out Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.

Lunch the next day was in Davenport, Iowa, where I looked out at the mighty Mississippi River.

Omaha, Nebraska, was a pleasant surprise. It’s a foodie town, with interesting neighborhoods. We stayed near the Old Market, which is packed with shops and restaurants shaded by decorative awnings.
