I understand its one of the biggest lakes in the US. It does not really look a like due to its expanse but we had fun taking photos. It helped that my cousin was a professional photographer :) Loved the surroundings although we went autumn so it was kinda windy and really cold.Recommended for:

Arguably one of the best things about Chicago is its prime access to the shores of Lake Michigan. I love to take long walks along the pedestrian path that starts off Lake Shore Drive near Northerly Island Park (and I like to end up at the Jamba Juice by the Hancock Center for a smoothie). In the summer, you can't beat the sights and sounds of people playing beach volleyball, tossing Frisbees, and sunbathing in the sand.Recommended for:

Ahhh the lake...it is as much a part of the city as Sears Tower is. Come summer, much of the activity Chicago has surrounds the lake - whether it is the beach, the lakeshore path, the parks, the concerts...not to mention all the boats.

Growing up on Long Island I'm a huge beach guy...and while we have awesome beaches there...you can't exactly go swimming in the waters surrounding Manhattan just yet...so when I went swimming in Lake Michigan years ago and then walked around Chicago in a bathing suit and sneakers with my buds...we found it fairly amusingRecommended for:

What's great about Lake Michigan is that there's plenty of ways to enjoy the lake from land. The city's constructed great running trails around it and parks for people to enjoy the area.
The biggest downside to the big city next to the lake is obvious to most. The lake negatively effects the weather in this area and can cause the weather to be unstable.

Lake Michigan has so much to offer. A beautiful sun set a night. Hot white sand beaches. My favorite is climbing up the sand dunes! There are seagulls and sea shells. The water isn't crystal clear but it's clean. Such a good relaxing family trip, the beaches never seem to be too crowdedRecommended for:

I called my mom the first time I saw Chicago's lake front.
"Mom... there's an OCEAN in the MIDDLE of the CITY!" It's been true love ever since. No matter the season, I find peace, unity and inspiration in and along Lake Michigan.
If you miss walking the lakefront, you've missed the whole thing.
