5 Magical Midwest Places to Visit before Summer Ends

1.  Culver, Indiana, "Cape Cod of the Midwest"
Hidden off the highway so the crowds are manageable is your own private east coast here in the Midwest.

A world of fun and relaxation away from the city bustle awaits visitors lucky enough to discover the treasures of Culver, which stretches along the glistening waters of Lake Maxinkuckee, the second largest in Indiana. Weekenders and vacationers head to the water for sailing and fishing or just a refreshing dip off the community beach. On land, they might take in a round of golf or an afternoon of biking. You’ll find unique shops and boutiques that sell fine art, antiques, sweets and more; restaurants that offer delicious fare with everything from down-home breakfasts to upscale cuisine, and comfortable lodgings to tuck into at the end of the day.

Culver is home to the world-renowned Culver Academies, a private co-ed boarding school, that counts actors Hal Holbrook and Joshua Logan among its alums. Visitors love to watch the school’s legendary Black Horse Troop in action during Sunday afternoon parades. The Troop has ridden in Presidential inaugural parades since 1913.
