15 Reasons to Visit Lake Michigan in Winter
Try frozen dunes -- and hot treats
1. Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore's famed Mount Baldy, snow-streaked in winter, offers a gently sloping path to the crest. From there, Lake Michigan opens up, silent, still and breathtaking -- a vast lake rimmed with choppy ice.
2. Caffe Tosi in St. Joseph, Michigan, tempts visitors with a rich tiramisu layered with creamy mascarpone (pictured at left). Nearby, at the Chocolate Cafe and Museum, the barista whips white chocolate, steamed milk and espresso into Lake Effect Mochas.
