Windsor is located right across the river from Detroit, making day trips easy and practical.  Be aware that you have the proper documentation for crossing the border.  It is suggested that citizens of the U.S. read the information contained in the traveller article "Canada: Crossing the Border"

 If traveling into Windsor from the bridge or the 401 you can stop at the Regional Tourism Information Centre at 1235 Huron Church Road or if you are traveling into Windsor from the tunnel or you are downtown enjoying the day you can stop into Tourism Windsor's main office at 333 Riverside Drive West or you can go to the Ontario Travel Information Centre at 110 Park St E for a visitors guide and map of the City and the County.  Here you can also pick up other information on what this Region has to offer. 

Make sure to visit some of the city’s expansive parks, of which there are several. One of them stretches along the river for several miles and includes a sculpture park, several gardens and a festival plaza with a Peace Fountain symbolizing the harmonious relationship between Canada and the United States.

Also check out a few of the city’s fine museums such as the Windsor Wood Carving Museum (850 Ouellette Avenue), the Community Museum in the City Centre (1812 Francois Baby House) and the Canadian Historical Aircraft Association (2600 Airport Road).
