The "Midwest" is a huge region of the United States, oddly enough not really in the West at all, but somewhat North-central in the United States. There is a specific accent and culture associated with the Midwest, even though its a region made up of many states that vary considerably. Are you from the Midwest? Let's see if we can guess which specific state in the Midwest you're from based on how you answer these 18 questions! Of course there is a good amount of overlap, but there are a few things that set each individual state apart within the Midwest including accent, terminology, sports teams and colors, universities, and favorite foods.

Women.com has geographic based quizzes not only to offer some fun trivia on specific places, but also in order to help reconnect you with your home city, town, state, or region. Whether its a place you went to school or worked, or if you lived there for a period of your life, we want to have a quiz for you so that you can relive some nostalgic memories associated with that place.

Did you or do you live in the Midwest? If so, then you likely have specialized knowledge about the region that you are probably not even consciously aware of—but it makes that location a part of who you are and very important to your identity.

Be sure to share this quiz with your friends and family, no matter what score you get, so that you can strike up a conversation about regional differences with your friends who may be from the same area but a different state, or even just a different region of the state!
