CHICAGO, Ill. – How’d you like to be swept away to a tropical island…in Lake Michigan?

A company called Breakwater Chicago is proposing a floating resort that would be docked in the lake by the city.  Visitors could shop, drink and admire the lake and skyline on the vessel that looks like an island and is the size of a football field.

“Breakwater is a floating entertainment complex for Chicago,” said President & Chief Executive Manager Beau D’Arcy on their website. “…I was working in Las Vegas, and I realized that daytime entertainment is something that Vegas has done very well – and other cities as well – and Chicago was missing some of that.”

The company says there is something similar in Istanbul, Turkey.
