Thunder Bay

Thunder Bay is the largest city in northwest Ontario with a population of approximately 115,000. As the major service centre in the northwest, Thunder Bay provides an important "jumping off" point for visitors travelling west into the Sunset Country region.

Thunder Bay's main tourist attraction is Fort William Historical Park, a reconstruction of the North West Company's Fort William fur trade post as it was in 1815. The marina in downtown Port Arthur, an area known as 'The Heart of the Harbour', draws visitors for its panoramic view of the Sleeping Giant and the presence of various water craft. A statue of Terry Fox is situated at the Terry Fox Memorial and Lookout on the outskirts of the city near the place where he was forced to abandon his run.
