Splashing & Passing: Go-To Family Fun In YQG

Make the best memories together with our region’s most family-friendly experiences and attractions.

Start your day on an adventurous note by flying down a twisty slide then relax in the lazy river at Adventure Bay Family Water Park. Sit down to refuel with a slice of our famous Windsor-style pizza at Armando’s Riverside while gazing at the boats travelling the Detroit River and Peche Island. Amp up the energy with a round of disc golf at Lakewood Park, the only disc golf course west of St. Thomas! Let your creative juices flow at SKETCH Clay & Pottery and wrap up your day with delicious eats and a flight of craft beer at FRANK Brewing Co. Rest your eyes at the conveniently-located Holiday Inn Express & Suites Windsor East Lakeshore. After a great night sleep you’ll be ready to spend the day in Leamington with a stop for lunch and sweet treats at Lakeside Bakery Deli Cafe and then an afternoon spent exploring Pelee Island National Park — the most southern point of mainland Canada!
