Northern Ontario

Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians!! Hope you’re enjoying your long weekend!

Spent the past week in Northern Ontario traveling for the television show we’re filming across the Canada. On our off days, I’ve been trying to explore each city as much as I can.

This past weekend, I was in Thunder Bay. My last visit here dates back to 2006, while I was on tour across North America, tour managing two bands. I didn’t get much time to visit, so I wanted to make sure I hit up as many spots as I could this past weekend.

I loved rediscovering the downtown core, some of their newer restaurants and coffee shops. I particularly liked hanging out on Bay St. and Algoma St., it’s a sector that seems to be really developing. It has a lot of Finnish and Scandinavian shops but also a ton of cool places to eat and hang out. Calico Coffee Shop was my go-to hang out spot on Saturday and The Growing Season Juice Collective is without doubt my favorite healthy restaurant in the city. They make amazing vegetarian and vegan dishes as well as healthy cold-pressed juices.

I also really enjoyed visiting their comic shop, the Comic Zone, a place where you’ll find amazing vinyls, dvds, comic books, action figures, etc. So many gems in this shop! Nordcity was also really neat. I think the architecture and the look of the shop really goes well with Northern Ontario.

We also went for a run on Sunday and checked out the Terry Fox Monument, so make sure you check back soon for a full recap of Thunder Bay’s running routes for my #13Cities13Runs blog series, they are truly beautiful!
