There is a schedule of when the freighter ships will pass through the Locks and it’s so amazing to see this up close on the viewing platform. I could spend hours here waiting for freighters ❤️

Very interesting watching the big ships pass through the locks. .
Very quaint down town lined with souvenir, fudge and ice cream stores across the street from the Soo Locks park - Call 906-253-9292 for information when large ships will be passing through the locks.

Watch the freighter ships as they pass between Lake Superior and Lake Michigan via the Soo Locks and the St. Mary's river.

Soo Locks is where the American side of the canal of moving ships from the Greats Lakes of Huron and Superior. Disability access is provided. Disability limited to on street, and if you have you disability tag or license you can park all day in a regular spots without paying in a parking meter, (as of June 2013). You will need at least 1 hour to visit the site, more if you want to see a ship go through the locks.
