8 THE LAKE MICHIGAN SHORT CUT = An unforgettable experience M ilwaukee's Lake Express high-speed ferry from Milwaukee to Muskegon, Mich., puts on 62,500 miles each year. That's equal to two and a half times around the earth. What's more, the distance traveled in this unique car fer- ry's first 14 seasons equals the distance to the moon and back…TWICE. Now in its 15th season, the Lake Express is a Mil- waukee original and, in fact, an American original. The ship is especially envied by all the other cities on the Great Lakes (Chicago included), which have nothing like it to bring visitors from other states. "We think it's significant that our terminal is a unique entry point into the city, a major link from Mich- igan to Milwaukee for leisure and business travelers," notes Aar- on Schultz, vice pres- ident of marketing for the Lake Express. A major link from Michigan to Milwaukee for leisure and business travelers. L A K E E X P R E SS H I G H - S P E E D F E R R Y Ferry rides 2½ times around the earth each year
