Your Mar Mac wilderness adventure typically begins with a drive along the shore of Lake Superior to White River, ON.
Last week we showed you our 5 favourite places to stop to explore the natural world along the beautiful, north shore of Lake Superior. This week our stops center on our favourite man-made attractions that we feel are worthy of your attention. Again we have listed them from east to west, or Sault Ste. Marie to White River.
1 – As you leave Sault Ste. Marie, we suggest you gas up, grab an ice-cream and check out the shops at the Trading Post and Frontier Village.
2 – Next up is Batchewana Bay and The Voyageurs’ Lodge and Cookhouse where you can visit the beach and grab a traditional voyageur meal. Make sure you get one of their famous apple fritters to go!
3 – A trip along this segment of highway is not complete without a stop at the Wawa Goose! Park at the visitor center, check out the displays and make sure to get your photo with the famous Wawa Goose!
4 – Just past the Wawa Goose, take a step back in history at Youngs General Store. This is one of the most talked about tourist spots on the Trans-Canada Highway, with Henrietta the moose always standing on the front porch waiting to greet you.
5 – White River is your gateway to Mar Mac Lodge however make sure to spend some time here learning about the black bear that inspired the beloved Winnie-the-Pooh stories!
As we mentioned last week, there are countless places to stop along this route. We would be pleased to help you design a personalized itinerary for you and your travel mates.
