flyover states

The states located in the middle of the US, as opposed to those on or near the East and West Coasts. The phrase is typically used derisively to dismiss these states as unimportant, uninteresting, or not worthy of visiting (i.e. the states that one flies over on the way to worthwhile destinations). I want to take a road trip across the US this year and actually experience some of the flyover states for a change. The flyover states are just a bunch of rectangles. Do they even have names?
