This is a popular place for wedding & engagement photos and it’s clear to see why that is!

If you’re all about swimming, boating, chillaxing, hanging by the water and possibly smoking and toking in the process, we’ve got what you are looking for.

Many Chicago locals and tourists are always out and about exploring Lake Michigan. Whether it be in their private boat, a kayak, or on a boat tour, it’s always a go to place.
