Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan is a town of more than 16,000 people, and is located in the Upper Peninsula directly on the US/Canadian border across the St. Mary's river rapids from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The "Ste." portion of the name stands for "Sainte," but the abbreviated form "Sault Ste. Marie" is the official name of the town, and it is often referred to simply as "the Sault," which can also be spelled "the Soo." Home to Lake Superior State University, the Soo Locks, and the annual I-500 snowmobile race, Sault Ste. Marie is a common destination for visitors in all seasons. The natural splendor of the Upper Peninsula and Northern Ontario make the Soo an obvious base for outdoor activities of all types: boating, hiking, hunting, skiing, snowmobiling, and camping. Founded in 1668, the Soo is the oldest city in Michigan, and lays claim to being the third oldest city in the entire United States. It is the home of the Soo Lakers, the Lake Superior State University hockey team which has won four national collegiate championships, with the last three at the NCAA Division I level.
