About Windsor

Windsor Skyline

Windsor Ontario, a regional hub city of 329,000, boasts the warmest climate in Canada, with the same latitude as Barcelona, Spain and Northern California, and the southernmost point in Canada! We are also directly south of Detroit, Michigan. That’s also why you will find one of the fastest growing wine regions in Canada right here in the Windsor-Essex region. Find out all about our wonderful local wines and events at EPIC Wine Country. Essex county is also home to some of the largest greenhouse producers in North America, producing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and a variety of other vegetables to complement the corn and other significant local crops. Tourism Windsor-Essex is a fabulous resource for things you can do while in Windsor. If you’re coming in for the Summit, why not come for the weekend?
Our waterfront showcases miles of parks, gardens, sculpture gardens and a wonderful walking/biking trail, all with a vista to the architecture of Detroit just a few hundred metres away across the Detroit River. The River also hosts Riverboat Cruises in the warmer months.
Windsor’s climate is generally pleasant and mild in May, with an average low of 10 degrees Celsius, and a high of 20 degrees Celsius.
