"Swimming" Lake Michigan Tip by dlandt

Lake Michigan, Chicago: 2 reviews and 2 photos

Apparently, there is something unique about the Lake Michigan beaches. When there is a chance for thunderstorms, for some reason it creates very powerful currents that can sweep a swimmer well out to sea in a matter of seconds. It sounds odd, but this happened seven times over one holiday weekend, including excellent swimmers in good physical shape.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
