Midwest Wanderer Newsletter – June 1, 2022

Welcome to the new Midwest Wanderer newsletter!

Life is getting back to normal! We’re experiencing far fewer mask mandates and cancelled events. Time to get back to exploring, and the Midwest Wanderer newsletter will guide you to some fun and interesting places to explore.

This issue begins on an island off of Mississippi’s Gulf Coast, then back north to Minnesota’s Mississippi River headwaters, where we follow the Great River Road to the Quad Cities in Illinois and Iowa. We follow up with Oklahoma City, and attractions in Indiana and Kansas.

Check out our featured roadside attraction. This one we found in New Mexico.

And be sure to reply to our survey at the end of the newsletter. We’ll post the results in our next issue.

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.
