CHICAGO — Lake Michigan may never again be au naturel, but the body of water sure is appreciated.

For this week's Chicago, Reviewed, we look at Yelp reviews of good ol' Lake Mich.

From 20 reviews, Lake Michigan has earned 4.5 out of 5 stars.

All reviews credited to Yelp and may be partial.

Coasts, what do we have to do to impress you?!

It sounds like we're not doing that well, though?

The winter show is wild. Summer is still 1,000 times better.

People watching and bird watching are far inferior to people-bird-interaction watching.

Sometimes the busy-ness of city life is overwhelming and you just have to stare at a big, blue expanse of nothing for a while. Pasquale gets it.

I love lake.

It's a nice idea to think that LM (how casual) misses us in the winter, too.

The weather is famously not why the Windy City is called windy, so three stars for you, Dwain.

Love everything about this review; it cannot be improved upon. LM's level of E. coli is SIMPLY SUPERB!

"Listen, I don't know much about lakes, but this one right here, this one could fit at least a Delaware."

"Chicago, please appreciate this lake." T-minus three weeks until Memorial Day. Beach umbrella emoji. Sun emoji. High-five emoji.
