Top 10 Things to do in Sarnia, Canada

December 13, 2017 Etsuko Causey

Sarnia is a city in Southwestern Ontario, Canada, and had a 2016 population of 71,594. It is the largest city on Lake Huron and in Lambton County. Sarnia is located on the eastern bank of the junction between the Upper and Lower Great Lakes where Lake Huron flows into the St. Clair River, which forms the Canada–United States border, directly across from Port Huron, Michigan. The city's natural harbour first attracted the French explorer La Salle, who named the site "The Rapids" when he had horses and men pull his 45 tonnes (50 short tons; 44 long tons) barque "Le Griffon" up the almost four-knot current of the St. Clair River on 23 August 1679.

Reviewed By cmcl335 - Sarnia, Canada

Stones n' Bones has much to offer to ALL ages. Our 4 year old grand-daughter cannot get enough of this museum. Lots to see and learn. Extensive and interesting collections to wow you. Informed, friendly staff and a first rate, educational gift shop with interesting artifacts, books, stones, jewelry and so much more, at affordable prices. Do yourself a favour and check it out. No devices required. You will not be disappointed.
No time for the museum, browse the gift shop. Lots of must haves. A great place to pick up unique gifts. I did lots of Christmas shopping there.

Canatara Park

Reviewed By Engletina K - West Lafayette, Indiana

On a trip westward to the USA midwest, and not expecting anything out of the ordinary, we stopped by the city park for a bite to eat after stopping by the Real Canadian Superstore, and were very pleasantly surprised. It was a weekday after summer season, with hardly any visitors in the park, except for perhaps a couple in a tryst, a beachcomber, and someone or two on lunchbreak. We needed to stretch our legs for the long haul back to Indiana, and drove through the entrance, and through the park lanes to a beach, to park near the sand. Then, we had a lovely walkabout and photos, and the gently rushing lake waves provided a respite and special memory when the 90 minute wait at the Sarnia border was a bit overwhelming.

Refined Fool Brewing Company

We make small batch craft beer in Sarnia, Ontario. Refined Fool is a group of teachers, creatives, blue collars, entrepreneurs, musicians and pastors who care about beer, business, Sarnia and each other. We began by brewing out of our houses in midwinter with propane burners and frozen hoses and have since evolved into a downtown nano-brewery.

This is the perfect place for a craft beer. They have a great selection and there is a great atmosphere. Burgers from the Burger Rebellion can be ordered or taken in, which is an added bonus. A ‘growler’ to take away completes a perfect evening! If you like good beer a visit here is essential if you are in Sarnia!

I have seen many great shows, Concerts, plays etc. at this fantastic gem of a performing arts centre located in the heart of downtown Sarnia. Together with the Art Gallery a block away the theatre has helped spark a cultural renaissance in Sarnia's historic downtown located on the shores of the beautiful St. Clair River.

Bayshore Park

Reviewed By johnnyb2 - Dundas

We often visit Sarnia and always try to walk along the boardwalk by the river. Very nice Gardens and in the winter they have very nice Christmas displays. Today was very hot but there was a cool breeze blowing from Lake Huron. It was 10 degrees celsius cooler than our home near Toronto. You can walk a long way to such places as downtown Sarnia and its restaurants or to the other end at the marina with a nice restaurant on the water. In the winter you can watch the ice fishermen/women catching fish. I wouldn't mind owning a condo or living in an apartment right by the river. The views are great. On Canada Day or the American Fourth of July you can see lots of fireworks on both sides of the border. Lots to see on the Bayshore Park walk.

Mike Weir Park

Reviewed By sopranocharisma - Tewksbury, Massachusetts

Albeit it's a nicer park than canatara, which doesn't surprise me as its in brights grove, it's just a park, there's nothing too special about it. Grass, trees, a bit a play equipment.
It is much better maintained than canatara though and I've never seen this park ever need their grass cut since they keep up on it!
