We have the big lake -- Superior -- too.....I don't get it.

I grew up on the shore of Lake Michigan and we always referred to it as the "big lake" in casual conversation, I guess in comparison to the many other small lakes in the area. So I meant I prefer WI because they have a lot of Lake MI shoreline/beaches.
Sorry, worded that badly, didn't mean to cause confusion.
