About Windsor

Windsor is a vibrant urban community brimming with first-rate entertainment, luscious green space, and cultural delights—a city where there truly is something for everyone. Visitors can step back in time and experience Windsor's rich history through the ages at the Chimczuk Museum, Willistead Manor, and Mackenzie Hall. With 215 parks, the city is also a haven for outdoor recreation; but nowhere is better than the iconic Windsor waterfront, where strollers are spoiled for choice by a number of world-class gardens, the Ojibway Nature Centre, and the Windsor Sculpture Centre.

Known as a melting pot, Windsor is home to an eclectic blend of artistic styles and culinary surprises. For those who want a real taste of the city, catch a theatre performance at one of the many elite venues dotted around Windsor before hitting downtown to satisfy your appetite with a selection of delicious international foods.

Located across the river from Detroit, Windsor forms one half of the International Gateway between Canada and the U.S.—the second busiest border crossing in North America. The city also acts as a major jump-off point for national travel deeper into Canada via Toronto and beyond.
