Headed across Lake Michigan toward the rising sun.

Video: A Lake Express Ferry journey

Every Milwaukeean has a Lake Michigan story and for the next seven days OnMilwaukee will share as many as possible during "MKE Lake Week," sponsored by the Harbor District. Love our lake? You're in the right place.

Our first stop on a long road trip east a couple years back? A 15-minute drive Bay View to board the Lake Express Ferry. The two-and-half-hour trip not only saved us navigating Chicago on a Friday morning, but was also great fun in itself. And there's definitely something to be said for arriving in Michigan ready to go with a full tank of gas.

The ferry season ends at the end of October, so you still have a little time this year to enjoy a sail on our great lake. It starts up again after the lake thaws next spring.

In the meantime, take a trip across with me ...
