Windsor Travel Guide: 321 reviews and 984 photos

Windsor the southernmost city in Canada, lies at the western end of the heavily-populated Quebec City-Windsor Corridor. It lies across the Detroit River and Lake St Clair from Detroit, Michigan, to which Windsor is linked by bridge and tunnels. Windsor's motto is "The river and the land sustain us."
Windsor, Ontario is located south of Detroit, and is the only major city in Canada where entering the United States involves travelling north.

Windsor was first settled in 1749 after farms started getting too far from the protection of a fort in Detroit making it the oldest continually inhabited European city in Canada, west of the Quebec border.

    Thanks for the introduction to Windsor. I’ve been through Windsor, on the way to Toronto, but never had a proper look around.

    Totally agree! Great sushi! Have to add that Nico Sushi is a stand at the Devonshire Mall (close to the food court)
