Best Places to Swim in Chicago’s Michigan Lake Shores

A beach is a place of utter recreation may it be a seashore or a lakeshore, as long as there’s sun, sand, and water, there’s bound to be fun. It can be as simple as hanging out by the shores on a modest patio, or you can attend the various festivals and events that happen on the sandy lake shores. So, let’s gear up, gets some sun and have some fun!

While (obviously) not in our great state of Michigan, Chicago is planted firmly on the shores of our state’s namesake lake, Lake Michigan, so I think it’s alright if we give the city a pass this time. Also, before we begin, all of Chicago’s beaches are open from May to September and may adjust depending on how the season goes, so make sure you plan ahead.

Oak Street Beach

Arguably the most popular place to hang out on Chicago’s shores. It’s located at 1000 N Lake Shore Drive in Downtown. It’s the closest beach to the central town and hosts volleyball tournaments, various concession stands, restaurants, bike and watersports rentals, along with bathrooms, first-aid stations, and of course, a lifeguard station. Oak Street is not as crowded during the day and comes to a new life during the evening.

North Avenue Beach

Another one of Chicago’s popular beaches which is located in 1600 N Lake Shore Dr. It has all the amenities of a beach like concession stands, rentals for bikes and water sports like jet skis and kayaks. It also has the essential first-aid stations, restrooms and lifeguard stations. North Avenue beach is popular with teenagers and it’s not uncommon to have music parties in this part of Chicago.

Rainbow Beach

Located in 2873 E 75th St Rainbow Beach is a 60-acre beach. It contains the beach quintessential similar to North Avenue and Oak Street. During the day, it’s mostly casual fun in the sun for visitors, but at night, the fire awakens. It’s common for people to start barbecues during the night. A family friendly beach filled with all family-oriented facilities.

31st Beach Street

Not as popular, but considered one of the best if you’re looking for a decent beach that has a playground. 31st Beach Street is easily accessible by car and requires a bit f a walk by foot, but the result is worth it. Not as crowded and with that, the beach is relatively clean. It also has the quintessential of the beaches, especially the lifeguards who often go on canoes to supervise the beach’s visitors.

Kathy Osterman Beach

Found in 5800 North Lake Shore Drive, this beach is also called “Hollywood Beach”. The place is not as crowded and is popular because it has been unofficially known as the LGBTQ Beach. Also has all the quintessential needs of a beach, with food stalls and clean bathrooms. Chinese festivals are held here, like the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival and the Chinese Moon Festival. Easily a beach for all walks of life.

Montrose Beach

Not the largest, nor the most spectacular, this beach found at 601 W Montrose Ave, has its charms. It hosts one of the best, if not the only, dog beaches. Half the beach is a fenced area where you can bring man’s best friend out for some sandy shoreline fun. It’s also a good spot for bird watching as seagulls, hawks, and all manner of lake-faring birds flock and fly close to the shores, (but not too close to the people.) It has all the needed stalls for a lake beach, and it offers a great view of Chicago.

The Largest Lake in Michigan

Michigan is a state between two Great Lakes, Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. The state is comprised of two land masses between the two lakes, with the northern part smaller than the southern part. Southeast of the southern part of Michigan is Lake Erie, another one of the Great Lakes, but Michigan’s connection with it is pretty small. Still, today we are going to discuss which among these lakes is the largest in Michigan?

Michigan’s Great Lakes

Lake Huron is west of Michigan. This lake is also on the Canadian border and has the longest shoreline among all the great lakes. It’s the fifth largest freshwater lake in the world, which pays credence to how massive Lake Huron is. Is it the largest in Michigan though?

Lake Erie, southeast of Michigan, holds a special record being the warmest lake among the great lakes, yet oddly, it’s the one that freezes more than the other lakes. The reason behind this is that Lake Erie is not only one of the smaller Great Lakes by surface area, it’s also not nearly as deep as the others. Its total water volume doesn’t come close to the other Great Lakes

East of Michigan is where you’ll find Lake Michigan. This lake alone has more than 12 million people living along its shores, making it the most inhabited among the great lakes. The center of Lake Michigan is also quite deep, dipping at 281 meters into a place where there’s not much life and a whole lot of empty mud.

With all these facts, it’s still quite hard to definitively say which is the largest. Even if we start listing the numbers, there’s still room for argument. By largest do we mean the widest lake? Or the lake with the most amount of water? What about Depth?

The numbers are as follows:

By Surface Area

Lake Michigan:  22,300 square miles (57,800 square kilometers)

Lake Huron: 23,000 square miles (59,600 square kilometers)

Lake Erie: 9,910 square miles (25,700 square kilometers)

It appears that Lake Michigan is short by about 700 square miles, but that’s until you take a look at the amount of water.

By Water Volume

Lake Michigan: 1,180 cubic miles (4,920 cubic kilometers)

Lake Huron: 850 cubic miles (3,540 cubic kilometers)

Lake Erie: 116 cubic miles (484 cubic kilometers)

By sheer volume or amount of water, Lake Michigan takes home the gold. If there’s still room for argument, let’s take on average depth and see if Lake Michigan scores another point.

By Depth

Lake Michigan: 46 fathoms (279 ft/ 85 m)

Lake Huron: 32 fathoms (195 ft / 59 m)

Lake Erie: 10 fathoms (62 ft /19 m)

Lake Michigan scores another. Though Lake Huron is bigger by span, if you add all the other values up, Lake Michigan is the largest lake in Michigan.

There’s a slight catch though. Technically speaking, Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are a single body of water. At the point where North Michigan and South Michigan meet, the channels between the two lakes are level. In this case, we might as well consider the connected Michigan-Huron to be the largest lake in Michigan.

Nevertheless, each of these lakes in Michigan are wonderful to visit and are exactly why it’s so easy to show pride in our state with our exclusive Lake Girl gear.

The 3 Best Colorado Ski Resorts

The state of Colorado has 21 winter skiing resorts. Choosing the top 3 from the 21 world-class resorts is difficult. All of them have amazing views and have their own special characteristics that can’t be found in other resorts. Just for 2015-2016 season alone, ski resorts in Colorado had 13 million visitors. Obviously, this is a sizable amount. Statistics for the demographic who primarily ski shows a .5% increase. It is said that there are 53.9 million skiers in the United States, and visitors to Colorado account for the lion’s share of the country’s skiing tourists.

The numbers show just how dominant Colorado is in the skiing tourism industry. What is also interesting to note is that one resort alone takes 5.6 million visitors of the 13 million reported tourists. Here you can read about three world-class mountain skiing resorts in Colorado that you should visit.

1. Vail Ski Resort

Vail Ski Resort is the most popular and most visited company on this list. The parent company has four resorts that are among the top destinations in the country, but we will be talking specifically about their main resort, which is the Vail Ski resort.

This location gets around 370 inches of snow each year so you can be assured of the quality snow to ski on. The lift that you use is also absolutely amazing, which offers 4 miles of breathtaking views. You will not miss this resort as it has all of the amenities you would ever need and is confined in an urban setting. In this resort, convenience and beauty is paramount.

This resort has more than 5,200 acres that you can play and frolic around. It also has a lot of quality restaurants for you to enjoy. For instance, you can go to the Mountain Standard if you want to taste local cuisine, to Sweet Basil for fine dining, or to any other restaurant in the area.

Being one of the most popular resorts has its advantages. The lodgings are impeccable and the staff are friendly and competent. The downside of this resort is that due to the number of visitors, parking can occasionally be problematic.

2. Aspen Snowmass

This is considered to be one of the best skiing resorts in the country. The goal of this resort is to give family a wonderful skiing experience. If you are planning a family vacation in Colorado, this is one of the better choices. It has world class facilities. That is to be expected since a lot of the rich and famous come and visit this resort.

It has a lot of skiing runs available to the tourist no matter the skill level. It also has a lot of activities that cater to kids. The view is immensely amazing and it has 3 terrain parks that are incredibly fun to play in. It has a number  of world-class restaurants as well. You can choose to dine in the restaurants in the town or to it out overlooking a panoramic view from a mountain top restaurant.  The Sun Deck restaurant is known for its amazing food and equally breathtaking view of the mountain ranges.

On the other hand, this resort can be both pricey and a bit crowded. This is to be expected since this resort has one of the best schools in America as well as world-class restaurants and convenient facilities. There is a very big chance that you will meet celebrities in this resort as well. The staff is made up of amazing people not only professionally but also personality-wise. This resort has definitely earned its stellar reputation.

3. Arapahoe Basin

On the other end of the spectrum, this resort offers possibly the best skiing experience you will find. Locals and professional skiers alike call this resort the legend. The reason why is because the skiing trails and runs are perhaps the longest and most difficult slides and slopes that are offered in the country today. It has 960 acres that you can play around, but take note that of the 109 trails that it offers, less than 10% or around 19 of those trails are for beginners.

This mountain skiing resort is located 68 miles from Denver, but the great thing about it is that it has its own local culture that really stands out. The staff are immensely competent but that is to be expected if the resort that you are working on is considered to be one of the more difficult hardcore skiing and snowboarding destinations in the country.  

Another great thing about this resort is that overcrowding will never be an issue. The operating company of this resort is more laid back compared to other skiing destinations. Those two characteristics bring together culture of friendly competitiveness and a real appreciation for skiing and snowboarding. It has a vintage appearance which gives it the untouched classic ambience.  The mountains and the view are also great, but this is really for those who prioritize skiing over having a 5-star classy dining experience on top of a mountain.

The downside of this kind of setup is that there are not a lot of commercial facilities in the area. This may mean vacation that is less convenient for you and your family. Due to the nature of the terrain and difficulty level, you will also encounter a number of competitive people at the resort. 960 acres may seem small but you should not underestimate the difficulty of the slope. There is a reason why most of the skiers here are off the expert level. If you are looking for a great adrenaline rush, then this ski resort will give it to you in spades. It is truly an experience to ski in the legend.

With those three best skiing resorts available, choosing which ski resort to go to might be a little more challenging than you thought it was going to be.
