One thing cool with Chicago's skyline are visible from several distances. I saw a pic of the skyline taken from another state.

Chicago is near the border with 2 states - Indiana and Wisconsin. However, I think the view from Indiana around the south bend of Lake Michigan is the best.

Here is a shot taken by me on a flight into Chicago from New York. I should be over Indiana when the picture was taken.

Where I took the picture from the plane is around Gary, Indiana, which is an industrial city. Industrial properties tend to extend south of the Loop, but not so much industrial for the north and west ends.

Alot of famous people come from Gary. But the town is blue-collared and depressing.

Well, Gary's reputation isn't so great, but the view from the waterfront there should be quite nice on a clear day.

I would imagine that but unfortunately, Gary doesn't have any waterfront promenades

Are you sure about that? The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is accessible by Gary's public transport system and runs along the Lake Michigan coast.

More information : http://www.nps.gov/indu/planyourvisi...sportation.htm



Gary's 5 public beaches :
http://dev8.datamine.net/beaches/

For example, Marquette Beach fronts Lake Michigan.

Definitely many places to see Chicago's skyline from Gary.
