The leading Tourist Destination in Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan was derived from the word Mishi game which refers to a big lake. The lake is one of the great water bodies in North America. Lake Michigan is the only great lake lying entirely in the United States. It’s believed that the first Europeans to see Lake Michigan were French merchants and explores in the early 1600s.

Lake Michigan is classified as the leading tourist destination attracting people from all around the world.
