Call it the lake effect.


The largest city on Lake Huron, it’s no wonder this place has been referred to as blue water land for centuries.


Don’t believe us? Start by hitting up Canatara Beach, one of 26 internationally renowned Blue Flag beaches in Canada, for some of the bluest water this side of the equator.

Or, head straight under the Blue Water Bridge, (we mean it when we say we’re blue), and stand in the spot where the mouth of Lake Huron empties into the rushing St. Clair River. Enjoy some of the world’s best-tasting French fries and wave to neighbouring Michigan as you watch massive freighters and tall ships navigate this ancient channel.


When you’re ready for a different pace – set your sights on downtown Sarnia for some craft beer, funky riverside eateries, and unique boutique shopping before hanging out on a patio and watching the sun melt into the St. Clair River.

Between the blue water, talented creative community, and exciting downtown spirit, there’s an enchanting vibe to the region that’s sure to capture your heart.
