Whether natural or man-made, there’s no shortage of art in Sarnia, located along the shores of Lake Huron. If you’re a fan of the Group of Seven, also known as the Algonquin School, you’re in luck – you’ll have the chance to admire some of Canada’s greatest heavyweights on the walls of the Judith and Norman Alix Art Gallery, located in the city’s downtown cultural district and offering free admission five days a week.
The Stones and Bones Museum is another must-see on your Sarnia itinerary. From dinosaur fossils to gemstones and native Canadian artifacts, there’s much to keep natural history buffs busy here. Cap your day of sightseeing with a local dramatic arts performance at the Imperial Theatre or the Lawrence House Centre, or tee it up on local golf courses such as Brights Grove or Huron Oaks.
Make sure to budget time to admire the city’s natural beauty too. Watch the boats or fly a kite in the waterfront garden of Centennial Park, stroll along the shorelines of Canatara Beach, or take a trek through the region’s numerous picturesque conservation areas, including Warwick, Highland Glen, and Wawanosh Wetlands. For kid-friendly fun, pay a visit to the year-round Children’s Animal Farm, and, in the warmer months, take a trip to Macklin’s Farm to pick your own produce.
