Just across the Detroit River from Detroit, Michigan, Windsor is a Canadian city with a wide variety of cultures to explore. In fact, more than 20% of the residents there were not born in Canada. The river is a major attractant for both locals and tourists all year long but especially during the summer months from June through August. The waterfront is covered with tourist attractions from Windsor Sculpture Park to the Ambassador suspension bridge, built in 1929.
Founded in 1748 by Europeans, the area was already inhabited by the Iroquois, Potawatomi, Odawa, and Huron indigenous people. However, a French settlement was founded at the site in 1749, which makes it the oldest inhabited European settlement in Canada. The French-Canadian heritage is still alive in Windsor and shows with its French street names like Marentette, Langlois, Pierre, and Francois.
Being on the waterfront, the climate makes a big impact on outdoor activities. If you plan on doing some water sports like swimming or boating, plan your visit during the summer from June through September when the highs reach into the upper 70s and lower 80s. If you do not mind cool weather, you can visit any other time of the year.
We travel often, and we know that luggage can get in the way when visiting a destination. We created Bounce, where you can leave your bags with one of our many insured and vetted companies worldwide while touring. Locals can use our service as well. Headed out to the clubs after work? Drop off your things at one of our Bounce locations on the way out.
Top Things to Do
If you enjoy seeing and learning about the flora of the places you visit, head over to one of the gardens. Jackson Park on Tecumseh Road East has over 10,000 plants to take pictures of. Coventry Gardens on Riverside Drive East is also a pretty place. Take a walk along the river where you will pass through several excellent parks. Of course, you can also enjoy museums, shopping, and dining in Windsor as well. But leave your luggage at one of our Bounce locations first because most places do not allow them.
Being a multicultural city, you will find a variety of museums. A dozen in all. The Chimczuk Museum on Riverside Drive West will fill you with knowledge about the indigenous people. Or find out more about the Underground Railroad at the John Freeman Walls Historic Site on Puce Road. Here are some of our top spots.
Windsor’s Community Museum: The main museum of Windsor is located in the Francois Baby House, built by Francois Baby in 1812. Located on Pitt Street, the Windsor Community Museum has more than 15,000 artifacts and many important historical documents. The great thing about this museum is that it is three museums in one. You can visit the Chimczuk Museum exhibits with over 600 historical maps and the Baby House exhibits that will explain how the French came to Windsor and their relationships with the indigenous peoples. Be sure to stop at the gift shop for some unique souvenirs.
Prosperity Place Museum: This outdoor museum on Sandwich Street along the riverfront honors 10,000 years of the local European and indigenous peoples who traveled along the lakes. Follow the instructional billboards along the way and see an anchor that is seven feet tall and weight over 8,000 pounds. What a great place for some selfies! Be sure to get some shots with the stone canoes too. You can also enjoy some of the trails with murals along the way.
Canadian Historical Aircraft Association: Do you like airplanes? This museum in a hangar on Airport Road has some amazing planes to see. Right next to the Windsor Flying Club, take a guided tour where you can see some of the most famous aircraft ever built. See the Mosquito KB161 from WWII that is being restored by volunteers. And the Lancaster FM212, which is one of only 17 left in the world. This bomber also had its part in the war and is being restored as well. Get some selfies with these historic beauties.
Shopping in a city on the border is great because of the duty-free shops you can find. Buying without taxes of any kind can save you a bundle so you can stock up on things you need as well as things you don’t need. Drop off your bags with one of our partners first so you can carry all of your purchases.
Duty Free Canada: Found on the Ambassador Bridge, this is a fantastic place to buy all sorts of things because you do not have to pay taxes on any of it. You can get some one-of-a-kind souvenirs made by locals as well as jewelry, designer clothing and shoes, and specialty foods. You can even get some great deals on cigarettes, cigars, and booze. Crystal glassware and fine china are also popular items.
Devonshire Mall: With more than 175 stores to peruse, the Devonshire Mall on Howard Avenue is the place to go when you want to shop ‘til you drop. Purchase some nice fashion items at American Eagle Outfitters, Old Navy, or Guess. Shop for the kids at The Children’s Place or get some cute inexpensive gifts at Dollarama. The food court has 15 eateries with a variety of choices. Or you can get some wings at Buffalo Wild Wings or Asian cuisine at Mandarin before heading back for more shopping.
Whiskeyjack Boutique: Take a piece of Canada home with you. No matter what you are looking for, you will likely find it at Whiskeyjack Boutique on Maiden Lane downtown. It may be a small shop, but they have many items to choose from that are all Canadian made. From snow globes to clothing, jewelry, and food, the variety is endless. Grab some handmade gifts for the people back home and some chocolate or another treat for yourself.
If you are American, you may notice that Canadians do not eat much differently than you do. In fact, because of the diversification, you are more likely to find Asian or Indian food rather than traditional Canadian cuisine. Some of the unique delights you may find interesting are poutine, which is a dish of French fries, cheese curds, and gravy; peameal bacon (Canadian bacon), and Saskatoon berry pie.
Local Food: The Twisted Apron on Wyandotte Street East is famous for its poutine and peameal bacon. But you can also get a burger, tacos, or fish n’ chips. Don’t miss their fried pickles with ranch dressing! Try a Canadian pizza at Capri Pizzeria & Bar-B-Q Restaurant on Dougall Avenue. For a Canadian style pizza, stop in at the Walkerville Eatery on Walker Road. Some of the unique toppings include crispy duck, mango, and even peanuts.
Indulge: For a meal you will not forget, try being pampered at one of the fancy establishments in Windsor. Nero’s Steakhouse on Riverside Drive East has a variety of delights like lobster, octopus, and even bison. Spago Ristorante and Pizzeria has the best pasta such as gnocchi, tagliatelle, lasagna, stuffed shells, and Spagomade bomba sauce on everything. Niko Sushi on Amy Croft Drive is a popular sushi house with gyoza, tempura, and a quaint dining area. And the Take Five Bistro on Erie Street East has won many awards for their food from beef wellington to delicious duck breast with orange marmalade.
Fast Food: It may not be the local McDonalds (although they do have those in Windsor), but there are many foods you can get on the go in these quick bite choices. Frenchy’s Poutinery on Ouellette Avenue will tempt you with 10 different toppings on their poutine. The Shawarma Shack on Walker Road is a great place to grab some Shawarma in many different flavors such as beef, chicken, or falafel.
Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
