Lake Superior, Michigan, U.S.

Lake Superior is the largest, deepest and coldest of the Great Lakes. Our favorite part of it is Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, where sandstone cliffs extend along some 15 miles of coastline.

Although there are plenty of winter activities for hardy Midwesterners, it is summer that pulls people out onto the lake's pristine waters with spectacular views of the mineral-stained and weather-sculpted cliffs. Campers and hikers explore such treasures as the Grand Sable Dunes, Chapel Falls and Chapel Rock, and nature trails in the white-birch forest.
