Enjoy many things to do in Sudbury, attractions and events that happen all around the hotel-like accommodations of Residence & Conference Centre – Sudbury West. Now the major retail, economic, health and education centre for all of Northeastern Ontario, Sudbury boasts a large Franco-Ontarian population that highly influences the cities arts and culture.
Sudbury’s diverse multicultural community has something to offer families, groups, couples and every type of traveller including Science North and Dynamic Earth which are just two of the numerous must see natural venues. Be wowed as you learn that from the fiery impact of a massive meteorite 1.85 billion years ago, this led to the discovery of one of the richest mineral deposits on the planet being mined still to this day. Discover the real reason why Apollo astronauts trained in Sudbury before their lunar voyages as the cities terrain in some areas simulated the surface of the moon.
Located steps away from our Sudbury hotel alternative is a must try Selkirk Walking Loop. This scenic loop connects the Terry Fox Sports Complex and Collège Boréal to Selkirk Park on Selkirk St. You can make this entire loop by walking up Selkirk St. and back along a path to Terry Fox Park especially great if your group is at the Terry Fox Park for a Sudbury sports event for the day and you need something to do. The trail follows a tributary of Junction Creek and shows off some of the city’s re-greening programs. This trail is part of the Greater Sudbury Trail system known as Rainbow Routes. The Rainbow Routes were to developed to preserve trail for the betterment of the people of the City of Sudbury, and the enjoyment of visitors that may not have access to nature paths.
