All five of the Great Lakes are connected to the Atlantic via the St. Lawrence Seaway. You can travel all the way from Duluth, Minnesota to the ocean, depending on the size of the ship...and of course that involves a lot of slow, tedious lock rides.
An interesting factoid is that the Chicago River doesn't flow into Lake Michigan any more. It flows to the Gulf of Mexico. They had to reverse its flow because sewage flows into it and they couldn't let it contaminate Lake Michigan which is where Chicago gets its drinking water from.

Nice thread. Some more out of downtown shots would be nice.

Wow! I love the sight of the river flowing between skyscrapers. Chicago is very impressive.

Very nice! I knew that Chicago is not grey, it has many parks and I saw a TV program about green roofs, they will build many new such roofs to make the air fresh.

Some great panoramic shots. I love Chicago's position on the great lake.
