The World's Largest Freshwater Lake

Superior, the greatest of the Great Lakes, is best explored on the water itself. Sailing on majestic Lake Superior really gives you a sense of this big lake, and provides fantastic views of the rocky, forested north shore. The Ojibwe called the lake gichi-gami , meaning "great sea." Whether you choose to explore by boat or via the stunning cities and trails along the shore, the serene beauty is sure to stay with you long after you leave.
