Are there any outdoor areas where a person can smoke?

Hi, Didn't realize until after we planned to come to Windsor for a few days that all indoor places are smoke free. We go to a lot of casino's in the U.S. and enjoy to have a drink and smoke while we gamble. Since that is not an option and also not an option to have a smoke in our hotel room can we find a place outside to smoke without breaking a law or offending local customs?

Any suggestions without criticism?

1. Re: Are there any outdoor areas where a person can smoke?

You can smoke anywhere you please if you are outdoors. Some government buildings like schools, hospitals, banks etc...have a rule that you must smoke at least 9 meters (27 feet) of entrance/doorway. Walking down the street having a smoke is fine. At the casino, if you step outside to have a smoke will be fine. You may also have a drink on a bar's patio and smoke....as long as you're not sitting under an overhang. If you use manners and try not to blow smoke in people's face you won't be bothered.

Also, not sure if you can change your hotel or not but here is a website for htoels that allow smoking. Select the country and then the city and have a look what's available. I checked and I see there are 12 hotels in Windsor that allow smoking. Good luck.

The Casino does have outdoor smoking areas, both on the main gambling floor and, I believe, on the upper floor as well.
