It is indeed the "Coldest" of the Great Lakes as well. Lake Superior demands respect from anyone who enters her waters, regardless of the vessel, the purpose, or the time of year.

chicagoland posted earlier: I don't know about the other 3, but Lake Ontario seems a little depressing (Detroit, Buffalo, Niagra Falls NY, etc)

Detroit is not on lake ontario, it's on the Detroit river, and the closest lake would be eire. by the way lake michigan is not best known because of chicago, the freakin lakes called michigan! not lake chicago!

The best known city on Lake Michigan is Chicago, thats why people associate Lake Michigan with Chicago and/or Milwaukee.

Michigan may come to mind when you think of Lake Michigan, but that's not true to everyone... especially for many people in Chicagoland and the Milwaukee area.

there's also michigan avenue, which helps reinforce the association. as i recall, capone's cell hallway on alcatraz was nicknamed michigan avenue.
