Quality of Life

Windsor-Essex is a great place for outdoor lovers, sports fans, festival goers, and everyone in between. 
Lakefront living, award-winning wineries, golf courses to challenge every level of player, farmers’ markets, a temperate climate and festivals almost every weekend are just a few of the many advantages of living and playing in Windsor-Essex. 
Surrounded by lakes, the region is a boater and fishing aficionado’s paradise. Its golf options range from short par-three course to championship layouts. 
The region has built a reputation as a two-nation destination with even more cultural, entertainment and sporting events located across the Windsor-Detroit border. 
There are food and wine events and music festivals throughout the balmy extended summer months across the entire region. 
Windsor-Essex offers a one-of-a-kind foodie experience by being one of the most diversified cities in Canada which allows us to enjoy culinary delights from around the world — from Little Italy to Chinatown to Little Vietnam — we have it all from Middle Eastern shish tawook or local craft beer and everything in between.
