With the potential of lockdown’s lifting in the next couple of weeks, it’s never too early to start planning a summer road trip if you are near the Sudbury region. These 3 Landmark destinations are a must visit on your next drive through Sudbury:

1. Bay Used Books

Are you an avid reader? Look no further than Bay Used Books! Run by the Bouffard family for over 45 years, this bookstore is a well-known gem near downtown Sudbury. Bay Used Books carries over half a million used books at great prices, making their selection the largest in Northern Ontario! Both curb side pickup and delivery are available if you are driving through the city.

2. The Big Nickel

No trip to Sudbury is complete without stopping by The Big Nickel. Built in 1951, it is deemed the world’s largest coin and it makes the perfect pit stop for a photo break on your next road trip. Have a bit of extra time to kill? The Big Nickel is located close to the Dynamic Earth Science Museum. Grab your mask, there’s lots to explore!

3. Inco Superstack

Visible from nearly every corner of the city, the Inco Superstack is the tallest chimney in Canada at a dizzying 381 metres. That’s over 4 football fields tall! Sadly, the chimney will soon be undergoing demolition and will not be up for much longer. See it while you can!Be sure to keep your eye out for it on your next drive through Sudbury.
