6 Ways to Gain a New Perspective in the Midwest

By Wendy Helfenbaum, November 16, 2016

Looking for an interactive and/or delicious way for your attendees to explore your host city in the Midwest without booking yet another been-there, done-that bus tour? These customizable tour options offer memorable ways to experience the Midwest.

For Art’s Sake!

For 19 days each fall, downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, (shown above) becomes a pop-up, open-air museum during ArtPrize, an international art competition. Destination Consultants’ art-themed walking tour, available year-round, can be tailored to your group’s interests, showcasing paintings, sculptures and performance art.

A Bird’s-Eye View

Attendees can learn the lay of the land in Columbus, Ohio, by getting up close and personal with Mother Nature via ZipZone Canopy Tours. Guided zip line tours run through the treetops close to Columbus’ city center. Adapt the two-hour tour by having guides educate participants about the science behind zip lining, or by adding on a free-falling experience for the thrill-seekers in your group.

Tasting Pleasures

In Indianapolis, custom-designed culinary tours by Taste Indy Food Tours combine architecture, history, culture, teambuilding and, of course, food! Guests can sample local dishes like the indigenous pork tenderloin mini-slider, the city’s official sandwich, and sip homegrown mead (honey wine) from a local meadery.
