Snow Map


In the Spring, things are starting to warm up. For tourists, most of the seasonal businesses and restaurants don’t open until May, but some of the local services and activities are available.

Big Bear Arena in Sault Ste Marie, MI has skating, youth programs, and a 1.4 mile nature trail for hiking, or snowshoeing – if snow is still on the ground. Stop by Cup of the Day for a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate to get your day started. Keep in mind, it will be quieter in town due to the weather, but still a great experience for an out-of-towner.


Summer-time in Sault Ste. Marie, MI is always a good time to visit. Stop in at one of our downtown restaurants, like the Lockview, or Grillroom 1901. There are several restaurants with fresh fish from the lakes, deliciously served.

Then take a tour of the Soo Locks – either visiting them from the sidelines, or going through them in a boat. The Original Soo Locks Boat Tours is a great option.

Then head over to the Tower of History to see how things used to be!


Fall colors are beautiful in Sault Ste. Marie. If you are staying or driving through, you are 30 minutes away from Point Iroquois Light Station, and an hour and half from Tahquamenon Falls.
