Travel Tips for Thunder Bay

by melody129

Visit the falls in WaWa, they are gorgeous. Someday, I'll get a picture up of them. We stop here each year for lunch on the way home after a week of camping and fishing. The first year that I came on the trip (1994) was the first year that any girl had gone, and it seems like I always had to 'prove' that I could keep up with the guys! I honestly think that climbing the hill and stairs to the top of the waterfall was well worth the exaustion that I felt! It was amazing to sit at the top and look down at the rest of our group.

How Thunder Bay got its...

by D_Shannon

How Thunder Bay got its name.

Thunder Bay used to be two towns: the fur trading post of Fort William and the shipping town of Port Arthur. In 1975 the towns were amalgomated to make one city. Many Thunder Bayers still regret this move, and there's sometimes heated animosity between the halves during high school sporting events and city council meetings. When the cities were amalgomated, a vote was held to determine the name of the new city. The options on the ballet were: Lakehead, The Lakehead, and Thunder Bay. Because the vote was split between the two versions of 'Lakehead', the new city was christened 'Thunder Bay'. For more true (and some not-so-true) legends of Thunder Bay, browse my off-the-beaten path section or check out the link to local legends on the TBay homepage: Sorry - this little oasis is accessed by personal invite favorite place in all the world.

Silver Falls - A hike worth taking

by brian43

If you have a few hours and want to take a hike to a an isolated fantastic spot you should check out Silver Falls. Drive about 1/2 hour west of Thunder Bay on Dawson Road (Hgwy. 102) until you come to a sign on your right hand side that says Silver Falls Rd. Turn right and drive for about 10 min. keeping to your left until you come to the Hydro One station parking lot. Take the path on the right hand side of the station up the hill and continue up the river following orange ribbon markers. Cross over at the rocks at the foot of the gorge to the left hand side, the trail resumes here...follow it to you come to the falls. Be careful along the sides of the gorge.
About 1 1/2 hours on foot in and back.

Provincial Park and the Lion

by KimberlyAnn

If you enjoy outdoor activities and have a car, drive to the tiny community of Silver Islet and Sleeping Giant Provincial Park for picnicking, camping, and hiking. You can access the Provincial Park from hwy 11-17, through Pass Lake on hwy 587, North of the city. In the nearby village of Silver Islet ask the shortest way to hike to “The Sea Lion”, a formation in Provincial Park. It is a nice formation, forming an arch over the lake, but I guess I don’t have much imagination, as I do not see the lion. Others do, however, so stretch your minds, and maybe you will be one of the lucky ones to see the sea lion.
