“Relaxing and Educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We took several walks during our stay in SSM. It was always enjoyable and reading plaques along the way to learn about the area. There are many art pieces around too, and just a beautiful place to visit. Plenty of things to visit all along here.

“Relaxing walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

The boardwalk along the St Mary's River is a nice relaxing stroll, with benches placed along the route. It is very helpful not to have to watch out for bikes, as they have their own path right next to the Boardwalk. Along the way, you can sit and watch the Lake Freighters go by, and you can even see them lock through (albeit from a distance). In case of hunger or thirst, there are several Bistro type eateries close by, and the Station Mall shopping plaza (which is just a few steps across the St Mary's Drive road) has a food court. For those who like to gamble, the Casino is at one end of the board walk, and history buffs can visit the Ermatinger Old Stone House or the Bush Plane Museum just a few extra steps off the opposite end. In all, a relaxing walk.

The boardwalk/trail is very well maintained and has plenty of views along the way. Definitely be sure to stop by the Lock and get some great pictures!

“If your able to go to Canada stop for a short bit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

If you can go over to Canada stop and take a short walk on their boardwalk and see the Canadian view of the locks and see some of their old buildings. It is a pretty walk on a sunny day . We even made a point to stop the day it was raining so everkyone should stop and there is no charge just to walk.
