The Midwest consists largely of great plains, which is perfect for the buffalo. Huge cornfields are also found in the region and make up part of the the American Corn Belt. And of course there are the Great Lakes, the huge inland seas that are great for surfing.

The fauna and flora

The biggest attraction in the Midwest is the buffalo, an emblem of the United States, but you can also see eagles, bobcats and other animals. As for the flora, you'll find the great western prairies and the dense forests that surround the Great Lakes in the Midwest.
