My first Journal

I know some facts about the Midwest from the project that we did a while ago. We live in the largest city of Midwest region. Chicago is also our Nation’s third largest city.
Lake Michigan is the fifth largest lake in the world. Lake Michigan is shared by four Midwestern states: Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Most of the states of this region are flat and this makes them good for farming. Rich black soil is another factor that makes this region a leading farming region in America.
I know that the Midwest is made up of 12 states: Illinois, Indianan, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri.  
Of course, there are so many other states, cities, parks, landmarks, and rivers in other regions that I would love to visit some day. I love to travel and I am always curious about new places and their history.
One city I would definitely visit is New York. It is full of history and culture. One might even say it is one of the world’s capitals. Besides, my dad proposed to my mom at the top of the Empire State Building – one of the most famous landmarks in the world.      
I have been to Florida, which belongs to a South region, so many times. I have stayed in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Sarasota, Orlando, and Tampa. I would love to visit North and South Carolina, as well. I have heard that these two states have some beautiful waterfalls, breathtaking mountains, and of course miles of beaches.
There are so many places in the West that I would love to visit. When I was little, I visited Nevada and Utah with my parents. I don’t remember much of that trip, but I can still see the gorgeous red color of the mountains in Utah. I love nature, animals, and wilderness and that is the reason my next stop would be Alaska, Colorado and Hawaii. All three states differ from each other. Alaska has the most wilderness, Colorado is one of the top skiing resorts in the world, that has luxury and wilds in one place. Hawaii is warm, inviting, with some of the most beautiful islands in the world, that also combines the luxury and wilds, including active volcanoes.          
So many places, so little time :)
I hope I get to visit all of them someday.
