I really liked it here. I mean, this place has all kinds of neat art & culture and family things to do! I think what I REALLY like though, is the architecture. There’s TONS of castle like (medieval style turrets) buildings, and dozens upon dozens of brick buildings and houses. Class and style from a forgotten time! Speaking of stonework, there are impressive churches all over the place! Large cathedrals, everywhere.
They also have a pastry called “the Persian” which is a specially made cinnamon donut topped with heaps of magical raspberry icing! Not regular icing mind you but a special Tbay recipe, I think! These delectable donuts seem to be only in Thunder Bay.
That’s why I love it here. Here’s some pics:
I like Thunder Bay! It’s a great little town. I didn’t realize how cool it was until I was there. It’s much smaller than I thought as well. The city of Tbay is about 200kms from the next town. It’s almost like Canada looked at that spot on the map and said, “we need to have something on the map there, it looks empty. Is there something there?” And BAM! Thunder Bay made it on the map!
By the sounds of it, this place was a landing spot for many folks from far away lands with nothing but a suitcase on their way to make a new life for themselves and their families here in Canada.
The town moves at its own pace. The traffic lights are LONG and the business hours are “most likely open from x to y”.
