To say Lake Michigan is a large body of water is an understatement… it is HUGE!! While many of us know the Lake for its blue waters and sandy beaches, the lake has a dark side. Like an ocean, Lake Michigan is unpredictable, dangerous, and unforgiving. It is estimated that the lake is home to ~1,500 shipwrecks (holy smokes, that is a lot). Below are 4 of the more famous shipwrecks on Lake Michigan. Do NOT underestimate the power of our beautiful lake.
