Lake Michigan's "Windy" City

Tom Malone/Adventure Tribune
This aptly titled sailing vessel pulls into Chicago and docks on the shores of Lake Michigan; standing on the gusty dock makes the lake seem much more like an ocean.

The Great Lakes are in fact so massive that they do have tides and waves, giving the untrained eye the perception that they're staring at an ocean.

Lake Michigan (and all of Great Lakes, for that matter) were used incessantly by the various Native American civilizations the surrounded the modern-day U.S.-Canada border. In the 1600s, French fur traders used the lakes as major thoroughfares to connecting rivers, where they could access trading posts and larger cities.
