Windsor Attractions

Teetering on the western peninsula of Ontario Windsor is the tenth largest city in the province. Its location south of the Detroit River and just across the border from the United States probably explains why Windsor is best known for smuggling liquor over the border during the 1930s American prohibition. Today Windsor is more famous for its extensive riverside parkland and as home the University of Windsor. Host to a number of annual events such as the International Freedom Festival and International Film Festival as well as a popular club scene and the Windsor Symphony Orchestra

this growing city is undoubtedly one of Canada’s most up and coming multicultural destinations.
