The town of Amherstburg is a little gem. Very quaint and charming. Amherstburg is also the home to Fort Malden where part of the war of 1812 was fought. As others have pointed out, the Fort is situated on the lovely Detroit River just south of Windsor. It is an idyllic setting. When we were there, we witnessed several re-enactments of life in the early 1800's . We were impressed with the staff who showed us how the Fort operated in these years. The buildings have been restored and they have many original pieces of equipment. Also check out the wineries in the area.
