Thunder Bay

Canada's Gateway to the West

A welcome breath of civilization for travelers crossing the vast Canadian landscape between the two oceans, Thunder Bay represents a transportation hub linking the country's sprawling agricultural interior with the rest of the world. In a pleasant mid-sized town with a few historical attractions and plenty of dining/shopping options, holidays in Thunder Bay allow you to organize your time in whatever unhurried fashion you desire. You can spend days relaxing at the city's saunas, practicing your curling skills, and taking walks along the harbor. To satisfy your inner adrenaline junkie, take guided wilderness trips to experience the region's varied wildlife and picturesque scenery. Thunder Bay is in Thunder Bay District.

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.
