Sault Sainte Marie Things to Do

The drive along Highway 17 (Trans-Canada Highway) from Sault Ste Marie to Wawa is considered to be one of the best fall leaf viewing drives in Ontario. I will have to agree.
The last week in September through the first week or two in October are generally the times that the leaves peak. A lot of people will book a trip through the Agawa Canyon with the Algoma Central Railway for fall leaf viewing, I can't comment on this, as I have never personally taken the train, but I ran into a few enthusastic people in the Soo that loved it.
The area from the Soo to Montreal River has a nice mix of red, orange and yellow leaves, while the section from Montreal River to Wawa tends to be more the yellow leaves.Related to:

Going up and down the riverfront seems to be the natural choice of a visitor to Sault Saint Marie. Here are the best views of the opposite side built-up area with bridges leading to the U.S. Obvious effort has been made to tart up the park and the surrounding old port with a ship turned into a museum, entertainment edifice in the shape of a tent, glitzy hotels, local pride astronaut-named center and some restaurants. At night, illuminated waterworks and bridges add to the fairy-tale ambience propped by a naughty moon.Related to:

The Norgoma is an old ship that used to cruise along the Great Lakes. It is now a museum about ships and shipwrecks of the Great Lakes. Lots of interesting reading, plus you can wander all over the ship, from the boiler room to the captain's area. You can even visit the rooms where passengers used to sleep!Related to:

Sault Sainte Marie Restaurants
Dock's has 3 areas - a restaurant area with a great view of the river, a second restaurant area with a cozy fireplace and marine-themed decor, and a bar/pool-table area where they have live bands on the weekend. Part of the restaurant turns into a club at night. Great food, reasonably priced. In the summer there is a patio looking out on the water.
Sault Sainte Marie Favorites
Favorite thing: Sitting along St. Mary's River, soaking up the sun and watching the ships go by is a nice relaxing way to spend a sunny Saturday. Bellevue park in the east end of town is a great spot - lots of picnic tables. Or take a walk along the boardwalk downtown.Related to:

Favorite thing: The 'Soo Locks' host large ships passing through to Lake Superior. This view is looking West, the USA on the left, Canada on the right.
