The Sudbury Region has been described as Ontario's best kept secret. It is one of the largest municipalities by area in Canada, with plenty of open spaces, freshwater lakes, pristine forest and woodlands, park and recreational facilities. A few of the

choices include:

Science North is Northern Ontario's spectacular hands-on Science Center. Pet a porcupine, make friends with a beaver, create a tornado, find a fossil and take it home, marvel at the enormous skeleton of a Fin Whale, test your level of fitness, and even watch 3-D movies underground.

Big Nickel Mine go underground to compare various mining methods, inspect a powder magazine and see a refuge station where miners retreat in an emergency. In the underground nursery you will find pine seedlings growing as well as a garden sprout.

Big Nickel where the world's largest coin can be found.

Dynamic Earth where students descend in glass enclosed elevators into a 7 story deep chasm enjoying a spectacular multi-media show on the rock face. Tour through time in the underground mines and then above ground on the Earth Tour. Operate real mining equipment, make an earthquake, create a meteorite impact and plan a make-believe mire.

Ramsay Lake and Lily Creek Boardwalks where students can stroll along the shores of Lake Ramsay or explore a natural marsh on a wooden boardwalk.

Travel to Sudbury aboard the Chi-Cheemaun Ferry the largest and most modern ship ever built on the Great Lakes. It can carry 600 passengers and provides meals and refreshments in the cafeteria.

Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons is an experience of another lifetime. Here, students can get involved and capture the spirit life of life as it was from 1639 to 1649 in this reconstruction of Ontario’s first European community.

Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre here on the nature trails, students can experience ostrich ferns and cedar groves. A floating marsh boardwalk allows direct access into the wetland world. Indoors students can view the seasonal dioramas in the exhibit room and relax in the blue room for a shore video.

Discovery Harbour is a vibrant reconstructed 19th century British naval dock yard and military base. Explore the waterside boardwalk and tour the historic properties.
