Windsor offers incredible waterfront parks and gardens, lively downtown venues, and fascinating historical and cultural landmarks.

Whether walking, cycling or jogging, the Ganatchio Trail lets you explore 8 km of scenic trails stretching from the City of Windsor to the Town of Tecumseh. Named after the First Nations word for Lake St.Clair, the Ganatchio Trail features three distinct sections: urban, suburban and naturalized parkland. Along the way, why not stop for a swim at Sandpoint Beach with picnic areas and kayak rentals on the Detroit River.

As you head west through Windsor, stop in Ford City. This ‘Company Town’, named after the Ford Motor Company, is the birthplace of labour unions. Here, thirty-six outdoor murals have been erected on twenty sites along Drouillard Road, the hub of the District. These works serve to honour and preserve the area’s place in Windsor’s history, and that of the global auto industry.

Just down the road is Olde Walkerville, Windsor’s Distillery District and home to J.P. Wisers’, Hiram Walker, and many stops on the Barrels Bottles and Brews Trail, including Walkerville Brewery! With a rich history steeped in the rollicking days of smugglers and Prohibition, Walkerville retains its heritage while offering vibrant boutique shopping, theatres and seasonal festivals, and trendy dining experiences.

Ride along the riverfront to Dieppe Gardens, part of Windsor’s scenic, downtown waterfront. With a backdrop of the breathtaking Detroit skyline, pedal along the Windsor Sculpture Garden, a ‘museum without walls’ consisting of 31 large-scale, internationally recognized works of contemporary sculpture by world-renowned artists. Stop for a ‘selfie’ at the Ambassador Bridge, the busiest international boarder crossing in North America.

While downtown, don’t miss the opportunity to have some fun at Caesars Windsor Casino Resort. Canada’s largest internationally branded casino offers non-stop gaming, world-class entertainment, and a variety of dining options.

Stay overnight and enjoy Windsor’s lively downtown scene, with great restaurants, theatres, music venues, shops, and artistic landmarks. Have a look around and see where W.E. can take you.
