About Us

Hi Everyone! Welcome to All Around The Midwest: A Food and Travel Blog! Thanks for stopping by.

We’re Melanie and Travis and we’re 20 something’s from the Midwest. We love traveling and trying out new things so we have decided to start a blog that follows our adventures around the Midwest.

All Around the Midwest will be visiting different restaurants, business, and even small towns throughout states in the Midwest and write about our experiences. With that being said, please keep in mind that all reviews are our own opinion and we are being completely honest.

We love to visit new places, so if you would like to get in touch with us or would like us to come check out your business or restaurant, please email us at allaroundthemidwest@gmail.com. We look forward from hearing from you!


A little about the bloggers..

Blogger: Travis Clark

Hello Everyone,
The name is Travis. Born and raised in a small town in Missouri. Grew up always outdoors.. Camping, Fishing, Four-wheeling, Dirt Biking, etc. Loving spending time with family. Will do anything for them. Lost my father at a very young age. I was 12 years old the day my father left this earth. Mother had to work numerous jobs to take care of my sister and I so spending time with her was very minimal. Back in 2012 my mother was re-married and now lives 5hrs away. Every time she gets to come down to visit the family is always the best. I work for a large corporation that deals with printing and printer/copier maintenance. Love to keep myself busy.. with that being either remodeling my house, working, or spending time with family or traveling to some place new! Want to know more just ask.

Melanie and I  are out on an adventure to try new things and to meet new people. Let us know what your favorite places are that we could check out!

Thanks and please let us know what you think of our blog!

Blogger: Melanie MesserliHi Everyone! My name is Melanie and I am a small town Missouri girl. Born and raised in Missouri but currently live in Iowa, I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, and of course food! My friends, family, and boyfriend mean the world to me, they are definitely my support system in this journey we call life. Currently I am working full time while going back to school full time. I am definitely taking on a lot, but I enjoy staying busy so I would have to say that it works out for the best! I am a huge STL Cardinals fan and a Mizzou fan! GO TIGERS! While I have a weakness for pizza, I love trying new cuisine and drinks!

Thanks for stopping by!
