Sault Ste Marie, Ontario

Sault Ste Marie, Ontario (or the Soo as it's called by locals) is a nice little city of approximately 80,0000 people. We spent part of a day there on the way to Thunder Bay and three on our way home.

We visited Kinsmen Park and the Crystal Falls. Also walked along the beautiful boardwalk that runs along the St Mary River.

When you look across the water, you're looking at Sault Ste Marie, Michigan.

One thing that surprised me about the Soo was the large Italian population. It appears that many Italians immigrated to the area after World War II to work in the steel factories.
The annual Italian Festival was on while we in there. Lots of good food to be had.
