"With Detroit directly across the river, the two cities have enjoyed a long and friendly relationship." Windsor Tourism

Located at the western end of Highway 401, Canada’s southernmost city is also one of the oldest, dating back to 1749. The area was originally known as Petite Côte (Little Coast), and it's french heritage is still reflected in many of the street names, such as Ouellette, Marentette, and Lauzon.

Connected by the Ambassador Bridge, the busiest international border crossing in North America, there is long tradition of cultural cross-pollination between Windsor and Detroit. Canadians enjoy daytrips to Detroit to catch Major League sporting events, and discount shopping, while Americans pile across in the border by the thousands each year to gamble at Casino Windsor, catch a show at The Chrysler Theatre, or just stroll through the many picturesque gardens along the Detroit River.

Windsor, long known as the automotive capital of Canada, is also a lively city, full of entertainment. With most of the action centered around the downtown core, it's easy on the ankles to go on a shopping spree at the Devonshire Mall, pick some fresh produce at the Farmer's Market in the Ottawa Street Village, or simply go bar-hopping along Ouellette Street.

And no visit to Windsor would be complete without a stop at Point Pelee national park. Just 50 km south-east of Windsor is this island oasis, the southern-most point of Canada. One of the smallest national parks, it still manages to draw over 400,000 visitors a year due to its unique wildlife and annual migrations of birds, and stunning Monarch butterflies.
