Please offer your suggestions for where to drive. We're not looking to spend a whole lot of money, and she grew up around here so I need suggestions that are little less obvious than "go to the Dells". Also, we would like to avoid the holiday traffic as much as possible.
Not really looking for kitschy tourist traps, and we love nature and beautiful scenery, but we weren't planning on camping. Two ideas we had were to just dive to the Twin Cities, or check out some of the vineyards in Michigan (if anyone can comment or give advice or experiences on either that would be awesome as well).
She has explicitly said that Indiana is not an option, but other than that I'm all ears! What are some of the Midwest's best kept secrets?
