We are so glad we stopped to check out Soo Locks. We watched the ships pass thru which was really a cool thing to do. The visitor center was full of information! I think we spent a good hour in there reading the history which was really cool. We were in an RV and had no trouble parking on the street all tho it was late Sept when we were there. There is an old fashion dinner kind of down and across the street which was really good. I can't remember the name but it was really good!
