EXPLORE URBAN ART
Jump on the Windsor Graffiti Scooter Tour and zip through the urban canvass used by international artists.
The most Instagrammable tour in Windsor will take you to some of the city’s best photo spots and ensure you get the perfect pic. It’s a great way to explore the city for both tourists and locals alike and you’ll be able to leave with great shots that will give all your friends FOMO.
Every Saturday, the 12 kilometre route takes folks to see well over 20 murals and through one of the city’s most fabled alleys, and highlights a side of Windsor many may have never seen before.
CYCLE TO SOME WINERIES
One of the best ways to enjoy some vino is by bike, especially when it’s a national award winning experience. On the Wine Trail Ride, you’ll roll through the scenic, flat countryside at a leisurely pace and take in the sights, sounds and smells of a burgeoning wine appellation.
Savour at least 14 different wines along the Essex Pelee Island Coast while feasting on a progressive meal (this isn’t some lame boxed lunch!) at the stops.
Safety bonus: the Wine Trail Ride is certified with the Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel & Tourism Council.
ENJOY A CAESAR
Walkerville Eatery is officially bringing back their Caesarfest this weekend on Sunday, August 8. Booking your $20 tickets in advance is the best way to secure your spot.
ENJOY A FARMERS MARKET
Spending a morning at a farmers market always gives us a real sense of accomplishment and makes us feel good about supporting our community. On Saturdays, head to the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market to get some locally grown produce, fresh baked bread and even locally roasted coffees.
Also on Saturdays, you can make a little adventure out of it by heading to the Amherstburg Farmers Market at GL Heritage Brewing Company. Who knows, you just may stay for a pint.
GO TO A BEACH
Make it a throwback summer and head to the beach with the family. We love the beaches at Point Pelee National Park, especially the Northwest Beach where you can relax on your towel, soaking up the sun with a mocktail in one hand and a good book in another.
Colchester Harbour has become a hot spot as well, with accessible pathways on the beach and volleyball nets. While there you can also enjoy a meal at The Wreck and some ice cream at the newly opened Coolchester Creamery.
EXPLORE POINT PELEE NATIONAL PARK
Speaking of Point Pelee National Park…go to Point Pelee National Park! Get reacquainted with nature, take a walk on the boardwalk or go be the most southern person on mainland Canada by standing at the tip. There are trails to wander and, since it’s Canada’s most ecologically diverse national park, plenty of nature to see.
While you’re out in the Leamington, Ontario, area, you won’t want to miss out on their authentic tacos.
ENJOY A PATIO
WindsorEats has a map of great patios across the region that we’re constantly updating. Pick one that you’ve never been to or visit an old favourite to enjoy some well deserved treats.
We even have a great list of pet friendly patios so you don’t have to leave your best friend behind.
