Enjoyed a portion of the Sault Ste Marie boardwalk- which is cement, not boards- after a long drive and crossing the international bridge. It was accessible, smooth, level, wide, scenic, clean, and unlike a lot of downtown areas, seemed to be pretty safe even at...More

A nice walk after dinner. A long boardwalk along the waterfront with plaques explaining the surroundings and history.

Wasn't a super exciting walk until we saw to coast guard ships. Very cool to see up close, signage around the locks wasn't great as it was under construction. Overall the boardwalk was very nice. Loved the bear statue.
