From Chicago’s iconic soaring skyline to the remote beauty of the Great Lakes, get off the tourist trail and explore an American wilderness that remains relatively undiscovered by tourism. Holidays to the Great Lakes take you through this network of 5 immense freshwater lakes that are interconnected by a series of rivers and smaller lakes, surrounded by verdant farmland and expansive forests. On your Great Lakes fly drive discover the traditions and philosophy of the area’s Native American tribes who have revered the remote beauty of the lakes for many generations. Visit the largest freshwater sand dunes in the world, cross into Canada and visit the mighty sight of a world wonder Niagara Falls. On your holiday to Chicago soak in the views from atop the Willis Tower, ride the ferris wheel on Navy Pier and find a dark and cosy blues bar to escape the legendary elements of the Windy City.
