Visiting beautiful Chicago February after the Polar extreme weather. Fortunately it was a blue sky day and Lake Michigan looked beautiful from ground level and fro. The 360 Chicago tower.

It is a beautiful and scenic lake. You can take a scenic drive along the lakefront or walk. There are lots of activities along its shore, parks, statues, museums, etc.

One of the biggest lakes in the Northern America. Cold wind usually blows from the lake, so Chicago is known as windy city.

The lake is so huge, it looks like ocean. You can enjoy Lake Michigan view from multiple points. I went to the side near Millenium park and near the planetarium. It was so windy I could hardly take a picture with proper hair. The lake side is indeed a perfect place to jog.

Lake feels like an ocean, amazing views, close to hundreds of activities in downtown chicago. Many watersports available at reasonable prices.
