Sault Ste. Marie

There are magical places on this planet that still speak to something in our hearts, places so gorgeous and diverse that they allow us to know exhilaration and peace, awe and understanding. The Sault Ste. Marie region is one such place. Rushing waterfalls give way to majestic forests, rocky coastlines lead to picturesque lighthouses, and engineering feats of man stand side-by-side with small fishing skiffs and buckets of bait. Michigan’s first place has long welcomed those looking for a place that speaks to them of a life lived differently, whether for a weekend or a lifetime. Come to Sault Ste. Marie, and let yourself step back and step closer—to your friends, to your family and even to yourself. You will be amazed at what you find in this wondrous part of the world .
