Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario is located just north of the USA-Canada border along the St. Mary's River. The rushing waters of the St. Mary's, which connects Lake Huron to Lake Superior, is a main artery into Sault Ste. Marie and at one time was paramount to the city's growth and success.
In 1895, the construction of the Sault Lock provided an all-Canadian passage from the Atlantic Ocean all the way to Lake Superior. Today the massive canal system is a popular tourist attraction and is also used by recreational craft. In addition to the obvious water activities, Sault Ste. Marie's position in rugged Algoma Country provides an ideal base for a variety of hunting, fishing and hiking activities.
Area tourist attractions include the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, the Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site, boat tours of the Sault locks, Whitefish Island, the Ermatinger-Clergue National Historic Site, Casino Sault Ste. Marie, the Art Gallery of Algoma and the Algoma Central Railway's popular Agawa Canyon Tour Train.
Nearby parks include Pancake Bay Provincial Park and Batchawana Bay Provincial Park and Lake Superior Provincial Park. Winter activities include the annual Bon Soo Winter Carnival, the Searchmont Resort as a great ski and snowboard destination, the Stokely Creek Lodge (cross country ski resort) and Hiawatha, a nearby cross country ski trails.
