Favorite thing: The Detroit River is a 32-mile (51 km) long strait in the Great Lakes system and forms part of the boundary between Michigan and Ontario.
By definition, this classifies it as both a river and a strait (a narrow passageway connecting two large bodies of water).
The river serves as an important transportation route connecting Lake Michigan, Huron, and Superior to the St. Lawrence Seaway and Erie Canal.
Fondest memory: Much of the lower portion of the river is now part of the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge.
The Detroit River is a large part of what makes Windsor such a big attraction for tourists.
