  • One of the best places to overlook the city, the port, and take some of the best pictures of the Sleeping Giant from Sunrise to sunset.  more »
  • I love visiting Hillcrest Park in every season. The view of the harbour and the Sleeping Giant are breath taking.  more »

  • Good place to visit in day time night time is not usually safe lot of cars will be there at night be there at your own risk(saftey warning) Best destination ever to watch sleeping giant,sunrise sunset and night life.....
  • Great view of city & Sleeping Giant. Play centre & hidden slide for kids. There is some military history as well. Gorgeous gardens in summer. If visiting Thunder Bay, this is a must stop.
  • Probably the best view of the city we have. Other than Mt. McKay. The playground needs some.fixing up. Everything is broken and there are ever beer bottles shattered every weekend. However if you are coming to Thunder Bay for the first time I definately would recommend this view. You can see the city and its a great view of the sleeping giant.
  • Awesome view. Very nice place to hang out with friends.
  • Always great to come home and do some of my own site seeing.

Where to stay in Thunder Bay

The city center doesn't offer much in the way of accommodations, with the relatively industrial surrounds featuring little to interest tourists. Most visitors stay north of the center along the waterfront, where Water Street and Cumberland Street offer the biggest range of motels and inns. Here, you'll have views over the city's marina and port, giving you a sense of the region's maritime culture. Arthur Street West, which sits at the entrance to the airport, offers a range of motels and chain hotels perfect for visitors just passing through the city.
