A Guide to an Adventurous Day in Sault Ste. Marie

Sault Ste. Marie is a place for everyone to enjoy, even those with a little adventure in their veins. Here is a guide for those looking for an adventurous day in Sault Ste. Marie.

First, we start out by grabbing breakfast and a coffee. That may not sound very adventurous, but you have to start your busy day out right with a hearty breakfast and some caffeine! Stop by Superior Café, Oh Crepe and Coffee or any of the other wonderful restaurants in downtown Sault Ste. Marie to get your day started.

Next, enjoy a morning stroll through the shops downtown to find the perfect souvenir. Enjoy the Soo Locks Park and watch some freighters go through the locks as your breakfast settles. Stop by the Soo Locks Visitors Center to learn all about the history of the locks.

After you have spent the morning relaxing, it’s time to get your blood pumping a bit. Head down to Bird’s Eye Outfitters to go out on a guided kayak tour through the St. Marys River. Nothing says adventure like getting up close and personal with multi-ton freighters! There are plenty of guided tours to choose from, so you can pick the one that is right for you.

So, you’ve just finished a fun paddle around the waters of Sault Ste. Marie, what next? Well, you’re probably getting hungry again. Might I suggest heading to one of the very popular drive-ins here in the Soo. Whether you are team Clyde’s or team West Pier, either one will quench your hunger and get you ready for the rest of your adventurous day.

Now that you’ve filled up with some delicious food, it’s time to head over to the Museum Ship Valley Camp. Get a better look at what one of the big freighters looks like on the inside and see a freighter like you have never seen it before. Enjoy this new perspective while exploring the ship and the all the historic artifacts inside.

So, you have spent your day adventuring Sault Ste. Marie. You’ve seen freighters up close like you have never before. At this point, you’re probably interested in a new perspective of the locks as well! Lucky for you, the Soo Locks Boat Tours have you covered. Finish your adventurous day with a narrated dinner cruise around the St. Marys River and through the Soo Locks. A perfect, relaxing way to end your day, and you even get to enjoy some food!
