Sault Ste. Marie (known to the natives as "the Soo") is the gateway to the ruggedly scenic Algoma District, and also home to the world's busiest lock system. Visitors who come here sense the closeness of the wild right alongside human attempts to harness nature's awesome power. Explore the breathtaking Agawa Canyon aboard a train, hugging the canyon walls through 114 miles of dramatic panoramas. Experience the thrill of locking through the Sault Lock system, which connects Lake Huron and Lake Superior, two of the world's largest bodies of fresh water. Wave to the dwarfed freighters and international seagoing vessels that pass by. Grab a snack at a cozy bakery, but save enough appetite for a serious meal at one of Ontario's best restaurants.
