The opening of the Northern Ontario Sportfishing Centre in Sioux Narrows creates another attraction for residents and visitors to Northwestern Ontario to go to.
As a sport fishing centre, it will attract visitors who come to the area to fish the great variety of fish found in this corner of Ontario.
Other attractions in the Rainy River district include the Morson Tomahawk Lighthouse, Engine 4008 in Rainy River, the Emo Pioneer Museum, the Fort Frances Museum, the Hallett tug boat, and the Lookout Tower located on the waterfront of Fort Frances.
East of Fort Frances, the Atikokan Centennial Museum tells the story of the logging industry and the development of the mines in Atikokan. White Otter Castle is another attraction.
Our region is rich in history with its pictograph paintings found on many of our lakes. We can celebrate our cultural diversity.
Almost every weekend throughout the summer, there is an Ojibway First Nation Pow Wow on one of the First Nations in the district.
Fishing and golf tournaments from late May through to the end of September also attract competitors and visitors to the region.
Every additional attraction or event creates more activities for visitors to enjoy.
The museums, historical sites, cultural events, fairs, and fishing tournaments all are valuable and help to stimulate the economy and employ people in the service industry.
