The Beach And Buildings Of Chicago In Illinois Pictured On A Vinyl Fridge Magnet
There are thirty three beaches in Chicago in Illinois, along the banks of Lake Michigan. One of the five great lakes of North America, Lake Michigan is the largest by volume. It is also the only one that lies entirely in the United States of America with the other four being shared with Canada. The most popular of Chicago's areas of sand is the Oak Street Beach. Due to its popularity it is also the most crowded but has the advantage of being easily reached by foot at the north end of Lake Michigan. A much quieter area is Ohio Street Beach. It is a relatively thin sliver of sand for sunbathing but it can, at times, be like having your own private beach. For refreshments and facilities the Navy Pier is right next to the beach. The beauty of the Chicago beaches, fronting the familiar skyline, can be seen on this attractive vinyl fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts.
The Chicago Shoreline On Lake Michigan
The Lake Michigan shoreline in Chicago is not just about sunbathing. One of the must visit sites is that of Navy Pier; covering a total of fifty acres this is a playground for young and old alike. For views over the city and the lake a ride on the one hundred and fifty foot high Ferris wheel is perfect. There is also a miniature golf course and an old style traditional carousel. For younger visitors there is the Chicago Children's Museum with an inventing laboratory and a dinosaur exhibition. After an exerting day of activity there is an IMAX cinema in which to relax and watch a movie and there is of course always just the beauty of the shoreline as pictured on our acrylic fridge magnet.
