The Place Where Michigan was Born

“We say life here is about drinking in the atmosphere; of looking up at the sky to see that night sky with the stars and the beauty, or to walk a trail and to think of those a thousand years earlier who walked it before you. It is the center of the Great Lakes, and it always has been.” – Cecil Pavlat, a cultural affairs expert and a member of the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians and lifelong resident of Sault Ste. Marie.

Sault Ste. Marie is celebrating its 350th anniversary in 2018 (1668-2018). Come visit us during this historic year-long celebration to commemorate our unique heritage, and to make your own memories of, “the Place Where Michigan was Born.”

We’re a diverse waterfront community, and we offer a wealth of things to see and do. Visit us for year-round recreational activities, historical sites, the world-famous Soo Locks, Tahquamenon Falls, spectacular lighthouses, and pristine natural environments.
