Sault-Ste-Marie is situated in the northeast portion of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The St. Mary's River provides the northern border of the town and connects Lake Superior with Lake Huron. Established in 1668, Sault Ste. Marie is America's third oldest city and the oldest city in the Michigan. It is surrounded by scenic beauty and offers clean, fresh air with four seasons of outdoor recreational fun. Two of the most impressive attractions in town are the Soo Locks and the International Bridge. The Soo Locks provide safe passage between Lake Superior and Lake Huron, which have a 21-foot difference in elevation. The first U.S. lock was built in 1850 by the state of Michigan, with various other locks constructed and replaced over the years. Operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, more than 11,000 vessels carrying up to 90 million tons of cargo pass through the Sault Ste. Marie locks every year. The International Bridge spans the St. Mary's River and connects Sault Ste. Marie with Canada. Each year, an International Bridge Walk is held, which allows pedestrians to walk the stretch of highway over the bridge that is possibly the most scenic roadway in Michigan. Other attractions in Sault Ste. Marie include Soo Locks boat tours and dinner cruises, the River of History Museum, the Valley Camp Museum, the Tower of History, Alford Park, Brady Park and much more. Special events held in the town include the Soo Locks Festival, the Professional In-Fisherman Walleye Tournament and the I-500 Snowmobile Race. Recreational opportunities abound year round whether it's snowshoeing through the woods, tubing and ice skating in winter or fishing, boating and hiking in the spring.
