Sault Ste. Marie Travel Guide
Welcome to Sault Ste. Marie!Sault Ste. Marie 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. Sault Ste. Marie's proud history can be further explored at the Sault Ste. Marie Museum or at Frontier Village, where 19th century Sault Ste. Marie has been recreated. The surrounding area also offers many oppourtunities for unique day trips, championship golf and local shopping and dining.
Lake Superior is the largest of the five Great Lakes and also has the largest surface area of any freshwater lake in the entire world at 82,000 sq km (32,000 sq mi).
