Why I Love Practicing in Thunder Bay

There are many advantages to practicing in the City of Thunder Bay. On summer nights it is great to be outside in the light at 10:45 at night. You can camp at many of the parks including Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park and Sleeping Giant Provincial Park where wildlife can be seen and experienced right up close.

Being located next to lake Superior,the world largest fresh water lake,affords us the wonderful view of the Sleeping Giant from Hill street.

Although Thunder Bay is isolated, there are many frequent flights out of the Thunder Bay International Airport, the third largest in the province.

If you are an angler or hunter you are just minutes away from multiple lakes and natural forested areas. More secluded areas can be reached by canoe or even floatplanes if you are very adventurous.

The story of Canada’s most famous person and his dramatic story are detailed in the Terry Fox Monument on Hwy 11 17. Located just kilometers from where he stopped his run in 1980.

In the early summer, Thunder Bay hosts the Blues Festival attracting bands from all over the map. Held in the open air venue of Marina Park it is a pleasure to all that attend.

Fort William Historical Park is a modern replica of the Northwest Trading Company’s post in the early 1800’s. It has been voted Canada’s best outdoor attraction, containing over 40 buildings contructed to duplicate how they would have appeared in the 1800’s. There is also space for RV camping and rentals of the old and modern banquet facilities.
