Lake Michigan, the largest and greatest lake in the United States and one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. Chicago, Milwaukee, and Gary are the principal ports reveling in the austere beauty The Lake.
I hear there's a Bastille Days 5k run near The Lake on the 14th.
Lake Superior: Largest freshwater lake in North America.
Also known as Gichigami.
Bounded by Ontario and Minnesota to the north and Wisconsin and Michigan in the south.
Dumping this body of water out on the contigual United States would result in 2 feet of standing water over all lands while filling the Grand Canyon.
The Lake is big. Big like an ocean where you can't see the other side.
