Windsor

Windsor is the southernmost major city in Canada. Founded as a French agricultural settlement in 1748, Windsor has grown into a multi-cultural city of just over 200,000 people. Reflecting its American neighbor across the Detroit River, it has a strong connection with the automobile industry, with many car manufacturing companies basing their Canadian headquarters in the city.

The City Centre area downtown includes a variety of cafes and shops while the "Little Italy" area on Erie Street is lined with boutiques, bakeries and delis. The city comes alive after dark, as it's known for its vibrant nightlife and casino scene. On the "tamer" side, bird lovers flock to Windsor during the spring and fall to watch the many varieties of migrating birds that pass through the skies above. Exceptional lookout points include the nearby Point Pelee National Park and the Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary. The river-side area of Windsor has been developed into a lush area of parkland that offer spectacular views of the Detroit skyline, and is the city's most well known feature.

For a more quaint experience, Essex County and Pelee Island can be of interest offering many sight-seeing experiences such as wine tours (Colio Wines & Pelee Island Winery) and Point Pelee National Park, which is a 40 minute drive from Windsor to Leamington along Highway 3.
