5 Things To Do In YQG

In partnership with Destination Ontario, we invited Live In The D for a fun-filled week in #YQG and they’re showcasing 5 of the top spots in Windsor Essex to entertain even the toughest critic. These feature videos aired between June 27th and 31st during Live in the D on WDIV Detroit. This promotional video series featured five partners from the region including:

  1. Experience the story of Canadian whisky – from its vibrant history to the craftsmanship and process behind making it. Sample award-winning whiskies J.P. Wiser’s Experience.

2. Using unique materials under the expert guidance of one of Ford City’s true originals… Michael Difazio. The Ford City Original Makers Club is a perfect experience for friends, singles or couples not afraid of a little sawdust or becoming a Ford City original!

3. Enjoy a delicious meal at Spago and find out why Windsor-style pizza is so well-loved! Spago has three locations: South Windsor, Windsor’s Little Italy and Caesars Windsor.

4. Explore EPIC Wine County with the EPIC Wine Pass and sip your way through 8 of Canada’s most southern wineries, including Oxley Estate Winery. Why not do it on two wheels? Rent a bike from The Grove Bike Co. and get up close to the vineyards that make up the Lake Erie North Shore.

5. Go back in time and experience Fort Malden National Historic Site, the site of the longest American occupation on Canadian soil.
