See St. Marys - Driftscape Top 3 Picks of the Day
First up we have a place that will pique the interest of baseball fans - The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
Originally located in Toronto, St. Marys won the bid for the new location in 1994. The museum is now a local favourite and a major driver in tourism for the town. So grab your fellow baseball enthusiasts and spend a couple of hours reliving all of the monumental Canadian baseball moments through the years! This stop will for sure be a home-run on your trip through the town.
Second on our list is Sarnia Bridge - A perfect mid-day adventure!
Take a stroll through the Grand Trunk Trail and cross over one of St. Marys most popular tourist attractions. For those into photography, you can get some great shots from the bridge of the Thames River! The Grand Trunk trail runs 3.2 km and you’ll hit the bridge about halfway through, so give yourself about 2 hours to walk it. By the end of your stroll, you’ll get why it’s such a popular landmark!
Finally, a trip to St. Marys is not complete without a visit to the Historic Water Tower.
This site is a major part of the rich history of St. Marys since 1899. You can clearly see the town’s slogan “St. Marys, The Town Worth Living In” on the side of the tower from a mile away - you can’t miss it!
