Uncommon Midwest road trips?

The SO and I live in Chicago and have taken several road trips over the years. We're up for more, the problem is, we seem to have tapped out all the obvious choices.

A short list of our previous destinations include: Bourbon Country and Louisville, KY; Galena and Springfield, IL; Mall of America, MN; Columbus, IN; Cincinnati, OH; Madison, Milwaukee, The Dells and Lake Geneva, WI; St. Louis, MO; and Des Moines, IA. Nobody can say we haven't seen the buckle on the Bumpkin Belt.
We enjoy museums, small towns, thrift stores, tacky tourist attractions, natural wonders and great bargains! We can spend 4-5 days on the go and money really isn't the big issue. We love the Midwest; what's worth seeing that we haven't seen yet?
