Roughly around 15,000-ish people, this upper peninsula city in Michigan is full of yooper
s. Also called "Sewage Ste. Marie" and is surrounded by small towns or townships such as Rudyard (Garbageyard), Pickford (Hickford), Brimley (Buttley), and, to the south, St. Ignace (St. Ignorant).
Most people from the surrounding towns come to Sault Ste. Marie for social reasons and shopping... though there isn't much to do in the Sault, other than bowling and going to a movie.
The main bars & pubs, as of 2010, are seedy, full of high schoolers, and Canadians
on Saturdays. You always run into the same cast of townies week in and week out.
Twentysomething from Pickford: Hey! Let's go to sault ste. marie because we're all tired of shoveling snow and staring at cows.
Other Twentysomething: Damn. Are we that pathetic to haul ass 15 minutes in the snow for more snow and a bowling alley?
Twin border cities; Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Canada and Sault Ste Marie, Michigan, U.S.A. These two cities of a combined hundred thousand people with the Canadian side housing 75, 000 citizens and share a common border along the St- Mary's River wich connects Lake Superior and Lake Huron. Both c ities are mostly working class with the Algoma Steel Plant and the St Mary's paper mill on the Canadian side, but also have three post secondary education centers in the area. Lake Superior State University in Michigan and Algoma University and Sault College of Applied Arts in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario. Though both cities share a natural landscape, the Canadian side has a social advantage with a younger drinking age at 19, better beer and a more leniant attitude and price for marijuana ( a quarter goes for $60- $80 Canadian).
lets cross the river to Sault Ste Marie Canada and get some cheap weed.
