Looking for a family-friendly hotspot for outdoor adventure? Look no further than Sault Ste. Marie.
Situated just a stone’s throw from the largest freshwater lake in the world – Lake Superior – outdoor activities are endless, including the Agawa Canyon Tour Train, hiking canoeing or kayaking, relaxing on a sandy beach, strolling the downtown boardwalk, or fishing for salmon in the rapids of the St. Mary’s River … breath and say ahhhh.
If outdoor activity is not your cup of tea, take a leisurely stroll downtown along Queen Street. There you will find independently-owned and -operated retailers who exemplify customer service, and a variety of brand name stores. Or take a trip to Station Mall, one of the largest shopping malls in Northern Ontario.
Transportation aficionados will appreciate access to the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre and the Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site. To combine love of the outdoors and transportation, take a boat tour of the Sault locks, connecting Lake Superior with the lower Great Lake
With the abundance and diversity of activities, don’t forget to relax when visiting Saul Ste. Marie!

Here’s a rags-to-riches – or, more accurately, a ragù-to-riches – story; owner Chris Lepore worked his way up from dishwasher to chef in the city’s Italian restaurants before striking out on his own four years ago.
Now, from his downtown base opposite the Essar Centre, the city’s major arena and concert venue, he does a brisk trade in lunchtime paninis and serves up trattoria classics for dinner. Solo-a-go-go!
