Lake Michigan & Lincoln Park, Chicago: 52 reviews and 81 photos
Lake Michigan is the third largest Great Lake by surface area and the sixth largest freshwater lake in the world.
Because Lake Michigan is joined to Lake Huron at the Straits of Mackinac, they are considered one lake hydrologically.
Many rivers and streams flow into Lake Michigan, and the major tributaries are the Fox-Wolf, the Grand and the Kalamazoo.
Lake Michigan's cul-de-sac formation means that water entering the lake circulates slowly
The northern part of the Lake Michigan watershed is covered with forests, sparsely populated, and economically dependent on natural resources and tourism, while the southern portion is heavily populated with intensive industrial development and rich agricultural areas along the shore.
Walking along the Lake Michigan offers you perfect viwes of the city and brings you to Chicago's most popular attractions like the Shedd Aquarium, the Adler Observatory and the Navy Pier.
Directions: Start your walk at Soldier Field and end at Navy Pier. It will take you about 3 hours.
