Holiday in Lake Michigan

Orientation

Getting There

Lake Michigan is the third largest body of water in the Great Lakes District and the only lake that is entirely situated within the United States. The body of water touches four US states in the Midwest region including Illinois, Michigan, Indiana and Wisconsin. Some of the biggest ports along Lake Michigan include Chicago, Milwaukee, Greenbay, Gary, and Muskegon. Visitors can fly into the Chicago O'Hare International Airport and then transfer by car to one of many cities and beaches along Lake Michigan's shores.

Activities

Destination for fishermen

Lake Michigan provides one of the most rewarding fishing experiences in the Midwest. Here you can find all kinds of fish including steelhead, coho salmon, rainbow trout, smallmouth bass and walleye. Some of the best spots to spend an afternoon fishing include Frankfort, Ludington, Southhaven, and Muskigow.

Destination for bird watching

Turn your eyes from the lake to the sky and see why “Magic Hedge” at the Montrose Point Bird Sanctuary in Chicago has become a famous bird watching destination. Since 2011, the urban city has gone to great lengths to protect natural areas so that people and wildlife can co-exist side by side. Over 300 recorded species of birds pass through the area on their way down south for the winter including Le Conte's sparrow, Northern Saw-whet, and the Lapland Longspur.

Destination for beachgoers

It's no surprise that the number one attraction on Lake Michigan is its miles of sandy beaches. Easily spend the afternoon working on your tan, reading a book, or splashing in the cool waves. If you're looking to spice up your traditional swimming routine, try deep swimming at 57th Street Beach near Promontory Point in Chicago.

Before the invention of radar, many ships were at the mercy of poor weather conditions and hampered visibility which lead to a host of shipwrecks. There are now so historically submerged ships, that you can now dive at the Straits of Mackinac Underwater Preserve which has 12 recorded vessles.

Lake Shore Drive - Illinois

Chicago, one of America's biggest Midwestern cities, lies right on the shoreline of Lake Michigan.

In addition, most of the city's main attractions can be found just off of the main Lake Shore Drive thoroughfare including the Museum of Science and Industry, Shed Aquarium, and Navy Pier.

Mackinac Island - Michigan

Ditch the rental car and take a ferry out to whimsical Mackinac Island in northern Michigan. Here you can enjoy the simple life without the rush of car traffic and ride bikes, horses, buggies, or take a walk through the unspoiled natural scenery. There are also a range of lodging options available on Mackinac Island from stately lodges to quaint bed and breakfasts.

Door County - Wisconsin

Known as the "Cape Cod of the Midwest," this charismatic tourist city in Wisconsin features lighthouses, fruit orchards, historical architecture, a maritime museum, and several cozy seaside bed and breakfasts.

One of the most popular summer events is Summerfest which brings over 800 acts to the Henry Maier Festival Park for music, art, rides, and more. A trip to Milwaukee also wouldn't be complete without a tour of the Harley Davidson Museum which calls the city it's home. Every summer, the motorbike brand also holds a rally which attracts thousands of riders from across the country.

Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore - Indiana

To avoid getting too waterlogged in Lake Michigan take a trip to nearby Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in Indiana.

Some of the recreational activities here include four-wheeling, horseback riding, hiking, or swimming.
