Perched on the edge of Lake Michigan, Chicago is a true boating haven. The lake is easy to navigate, with very few reefs and shoals, and has a lifetime supply of spectacular destinations. There’s something about being on the bright blue waters of the expansive Lake with the famous skyline in the background; you can be part of the scene or make a quick getaway from city life. If you’re anywhere near Lake Michigan this summer, getting out on the water should be your first priority. There’s everything from world class sailing to some of the biggest raft up parties we’ve ever seen, and everything in between.
