Beardmore Snowman

In the quaint town of Beardmore, Ontario, you’ll find something a little unusual, and remarkable, on the side of the highway, the world’s largest snowman. The 35-foot snowman is along Highway 11 in Beardmore, one of the many communities making up the Municipality of Greenstone. During the seasons the snowman’s accessories change, sunglasses and fishing pole in the summer, and a curling broom and winter scarf, during the winter. Snow or shine the Beardmore snowman is always waiting to greet guests as they travel to and through Greenstone in Ontario’s Superior Country.

Terry Fox Memorial and Lookout

On Highway 11/17, 20 minutes east of Thunder Bay, the Terry Fox lookout is a great spot to stretch your legs and learn a little more about Terry Fox. This roadside attraction has a picnic area, information centre, and the Terry Fox monument with the lookout over Lake Superior. Offering one of the world’s most inspiring stories along with one of the greatest views of Thunder Bay, Lake Superior, and the Sleeping Giant, this roadside attraction is a must see and experience!

Paddle to the Sea

The Paddle to the Sea Park is based off of the classic book and film of the carved man in a canoe’s journey beginning in the Nipigon River through the Great Lakes. This interactive park begins at the Lake Superior waterfall in the heart of downtown Nipigon. Here you’ll see “Paddle” himself at the top of the waterfall with steps leading up to visit him. Enjoy the Splash Pad and children’s park, a perfect spot for families to come and cool off on a hot summer day. Follow the story through town to twelve playground stations with the Nipigon Marina being your final destination.

Watch the film Paddle=to-the-Sea which is based off of the book written by Holling C.

Terrace Bay Lighthouse

Along Highway 17, overlooking the beautiful Terrace Bay Beach and Lake Superior, you’ll come across a 50-foot lighthouse. The Terrace Bay Lighthouse, a replica of the one on the Slate Islands. The lighthouse towers over the surrounding area which offers impressive views of Lake Superior and the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area. Without a doubt the Terrace Bay lighthouse is a great stop to climb high into the clouds and overlook one of the most beautiful shorelines of Lake Superior.

Wawa Goose

In Wawa, Ontario, there is a unique statue that welcomes you to the city; the Wawa Goose. This impeccable, giant Canadian Goose stands next to the Wawa Tourist Information Centre and boasts to be the most photographed attraction of Ontario. It is fitting that the thing that made Wawa famous is a giant Canadian Goose because in Ojibway Wawa means “Wild Goose” or “Land of the Big Goose”.

Winnie the Pooh

This iconic statue is on Highway 17, in the town of White River, Ontario. The statue is of a tall tree with Winnie the Pooh, sitting within it with a jar of his favorite snack, honey. White River is the home of the black bear, Winnie, that A.A. Milne had based Winnie the Pooh on. There is an annual Winnie’s Hometown Festival in White River, in honour of Winnie and Winnie the Pooh. This is must see attraction Ontario’s Superior Country and is visited by thousands of Lake Superior Circle Tour Travelers each year

Nipigon River Bridge

At the most Northern point of Lake Superior sits the Nipigon River Bridge. This marvel of engineering connects the two sides of the famous Nipigon River. The river itself holds the record of the world record brook trout and is also the largest feed of water into Lake Superior. Great views of the bridge can be had from the Red Rock Indian Band and Nipigon. The most popular viewing places remain the Nipigon Marina and from atop the Nipigon Tower lookout.
