Sarnia is a city in Southwestern Ontario with a population of around 90,000.

Contents

Get in

By car from elsewhere in Ontario, take Highway 402.

By train, VIA Rail runs two trains a day from Toronto to Sarnia.


Get around

It would be best to have a car. You can walk around downtown on Front street no problem but the bus system is very poor and not to be relied on.

Lambton Mall: The largest mall in the area with a fantastic Canadian tire store and many clothing boutiques to meet most styles.

Do

In the warmer months go under the Bluewater bridge for fresh cut fries and to watch the boats in the St. Clair River.

Located on Lake Huron, there are many public-access beaches along the shore. Canatara Park has a large public beach with plenty of parking, although it is known to be somewhat rocky and the water is colder, due to the current of the St. Clair River. Beaches in Bright's Grove (the most North-East end of Sarnia) are generally sandier and warmer, and there are large areas of public access, notably at Mike Weir Park (the largest public park on Lake Huron, it has a large sandy beach, with parking, playground, baseball diamonds, and sheltered picnic areas) and Kenwick Park (which has tennis courts, a basketball court, playground and sheltered picnic area)

If you have children, The Animal farm in Canatara Park is a hit. This attraction is free of charge and the animals come right out to greet you. It's very safe and the whole family will have a ball.

Canatara Park also has a great beach, hiking trails, and a big park for barbecues or family picnics, sports fields, and a lot of bird wildlife.

Buy

Eat

Lola's Martini Lounge on Christina is a very popular spot on the weekends for more upscale appetite.

Albert's in Point Edward is busy in the summer with their take-out style burger's and fries, along with a great selection of Ice Cream.

Salvatore's. A cute little Italian restaurant that is a hit with the locals. Will most likely need reservations, is located in Point Edward with a 4 minute walk under the Bluewater Bridge.

Stokes Inland, located down town and Stokes By the Bay, which is close to Bluewater Bridge are great for pub food, good beer and a great atmosphere.

Drink

  • Lazy Duck. Dance bar with a younger crowd, gets busy after 11 on the weekends
  • Limbo Martini Lounge on Christina has a large menu of fun, delicious martinis. The service isn't the greatest but the drinks are.
