"That's one sleepy Giant!!!" Thunder Bay Things to Do Tip by tequilagirl

Thunder Bay Things to Do: 69 reviews and 67 photos

  Sshhhh, the giant is sleeping!
by tequilagirl

There is a legend of Nanabijou, the Spirit of the Deep Sea Water, punishing the Chief of an ojibway tribe by turning him to stone. This is the legend of the Sleeping Giant, a peninsula that is visible across the bay. It is very easy to see why this peninsula got it's name....look at the picture below and envision a man laying on his back with his arms folded over his chest. This is clearly Thunder Bay's best-known tourist attraction!
