Superior’s waters are cold but that doesn’t mean people don’t swim there. They’ve been doing it for a long, long time. As for Lake Michigan, with its more populated shoreline, beaches packed with swimmers have been common for decades.
A June 8th article on Mlive provides a photographic history of swimming in Michigan, on both Lakes Superior and Michigan.
