Meet the Midwest Travel Network Founders

Lisa and Sara

Lisa of  The Walking Tourists and Sara of Travel With Sara enjoyed working together and out of their love of travel, the Midwest Travel Chat came to be. Lisa and Sara quickly realized that bloggers and destinations needed a “go to” place online. Sara lives in Iowa and Tim and Lisa live in Omaha. They are both very passionate about their home states and want others to know of the awesomeness that the midwest has to offer.

Midwest Travel Network wants to help bloggers and destinations connect. Often times a midwest destination is looking for a blogger that lives within a certain distance. We hope to make those connections easier. And just in case you want to learn more about awesome midwest travel destinations, we will have that information for you too!

Sara Broers

The #MWTravel Chat happens the first and third Wednesday of every month of Twitter from 11 am- Noon (CST). This is where you can learn more about fun places to visit all across the midwest.


Sara Broers is a travel enthusiast. She and her husband live on the family farm in Iowa and have two grown children. Sara is a proud farmer’s daughter and enjoys calling Iowa home. She enjoys connecting people residing on the Iowa farm, beaches, mountains, the Caribbean and wherever her travels call her to go. Follow along at Travel with Sara to keep up with Sara and her travels.
