A place where the locals from the dating sites choose to stroll and sip coffee while pretending to be interesting. The fishermen in this area are fiercely territorial, if you go often enough youre likely to see a dispute over who owns the fishing rights to a particular spot ... I once seen one man throw the fishing rod of... More

Best in summer, I like to start at the Sault Ste. Marie library and art gallery and head west towards city hall. In this area, I have seen mergansers, muskrats, beavers and always ducks and geese including a few nesting areas. If you like drinks on a warm summer day there are a couple patio bar/restaurants. Usually in the evenings... More

Part of the hub trail, walking along the boardwalk is very scenic, ships going by, great place to people watch and if lucky you can see an angler bring in a fish!

Along the St Mary's river, well maintained, scenic boardwalk - with a separate bicycle path, to keep residents and visitors active and entertained. Stop and fish, enjoy the view, rest a while. Great for family and bring Fido for a walk.

The boardwalk is centred in the heart of downtown adjacent to the Station Mall, across from the Roberta Bondar Pavillion and gives you a direct view of the international bridge going to Sault Ste. Marie, MI. Its a very pretty scenic walk that takes you to the hub trail (a trail going around the city accustomed to bike riders and... More

My wife and I drive down to the board walk at least 3 times a week in the summer. We enjoy the breeze on a hot summer night and stop at the local pub for a pint or two.
