Parry Sound to Sault Ste. Marie

Hi, Hubby and I will be on the last leg of our trip

traveling home--on Oct. 8. We are planning on doing the Island Queen ferry ride on the 7th then heading back home to Wisc. via Sault Ste. Marie. Driving all

day along the lake---any really nice stops/scenic

over looks we should stop at? We only have the day

to get to our hotel in SSM but can take time to

stop and have a picnic lunch at a great spot? Just

looking for something to break up the drive a bit.

The "Big Nickel" in Sudbury is interesting. There's a small mine that you go down into and shows mining history and methods.

There's a great rest stop/scenic area at the turn off to St. Joseph Island (40 mins outside the Soo) It is right at the base of the bridge with a nice view of the lake.

Note- it's not the carpool lot right at the corner of the highway (that's not pretty! lol) but a bit further up the road at the very start of the bridge.

There's also a restaurant or 2 right on the lake in Blind River (1.5 hours out of the Soo)

Once you're in the Sault, a walk along the boardwalk waterfront is a nice way to stretch your legs for 30 mins-1 hour.
