Thunder Bay Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Sitting on the northwestern shore of Lake Superior, the city on Thunder Bay is an important port. On its waterfront the 32ha/79-acre Keefer Terminal shifts cargoes among ships, trains and trucks. Prairie grain arriving by rail, accounting for about 70 percent of port activity, is cleaned and stored in the port’s nine grain terminals for transfer to the huge ships of the Great Lakes fleet. As the largest Canadian city on the lake, Thunder Bay has assumed the role of a metropolis, despite its relatively small population; it boasts a symphony orchestra, an art gallery and a lively theatre scene.
