  • We visited Mount McKay the first day we were in Thunder Bay and the lady at the gate told us they were having a Pow Wow all day Saturday and that we should return. We did. There were Indigenous people...  more »
  • Not much in the general attraction, except for a great view of Thunder Bay and Lake Superior. Nice on a sunny summer day. Cool breeze off the lake, and a ham sandwich .Life's good.  more »

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.
