Midwest Road Trip Adventures: Highways and Byways

I wrote about some of my favorite North Dakota and South Dakota road trips in a brand new anthology and I’m so excited to tell you about it. It’s called Midwest Road Trip Adventures: Highways and Byways and it details some of the best routes across the Midwest. Routes cover North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Kansas, Ohio and Missouri.

Some of these destinations and byways might be familiar. But there are a whole bunch of surprises in store. We wrote this volume with pandemic precautions in mind, so it’ll be relevant both now and in the future.

Pre-order now…

You can pre-order Midwest Road Trip Adventures: Highways and Byways right here so it’ll be shipped directly to your house in December. (It’s also an excellent gift for Midwesterners and for those that have moved away, but still like to know what to check out when they visit.)

Midwest Road Trip Adventures is available for pre-order now.

…and pick up some postcards too

Don’t forget to grab a few original North Dakota postcards to send greetings from the road. It’s a fun way to send your friends and family a little love from the road. You can see a photo of the postcards below.

A little about the book

I’m really excited to be a part of this anthology. The other writers are folks I go to for advice and itineraries when I’m in their part of the country, so you’ll get very good advice from local experts. It’s been fun to work with them so far and I’m excited to have all their tips all in one place. (Yes, travel writers nerd out over travel books too.)

Here are some of the North Dakota postcards that are free with your “Midwest Road Trip Adventures” pre-order

I’d especially encourage you to read and follow the ladies who collaborated on the South Dakota section with me. Theresa Goodrich penned the Illinois chapter, is the creator of The Local Tourist” and the author of Two Lanes Gems, so she’s no stranger to road trip stories.

Roxie Yonkey is the woman behind Roxie on the Road. I enjoyed her section on the Black Hills in South Dakota (which is easily one of my favorite places on the planet) and she also wrote about her home state of Kansas for this volume. This is her first book, but we’re all committed do creating a few more together in the coming months, so stay tuned!
