Introduction to Greatlakesnorthamerica.com

The great lakes in North America are not only important geographical sights but are fast developing as tourist attractions with thousands of people visiting them each year whether for a weekend getaway or as part of a vacation pacakge. Some of the lakes in this region lie on the US Canada border whereas some others are there in Canada. These are some of the biggest, deepest and the best in terms of natural vegetation around them.

The Great lakes are a group of five large lakes namely Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario. The Great Lakes, sometimes also referred as Inland Seas, are the largest freshwater system on the earth. This region includes states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin and also borders Canada. Similarly, The Great Slave Lake is the second largest lake of Canada and is one of the deepest, and the biggest freshwater bodies on the earth.

The Great Bear Lake is the biggest lake that lies entirely within Canada. Compared to the other lakes, only Lakes Superior, Huron and Michigan are larger than the Great Bear Lake. The Great Salt Lake, as the name suggests is a salt water lake in Northwestern Utah. The Great Slat Lake, also known as America’s Dead Sea is far more salty than ocean, six to eight times to be precise.
