Whether you’ve visited Windsor or not, you might be familiar with some of the stereotypes surrounding it. A former automotive heavyweight. A sleepy border town. And the birthplace of Canadian country royalty, Shania Twain. But you probably won't know Windsor for its incredible farm-to-table restaurants, the abundance of boutique hotels and the craft booze scene that has revitalized the city, making it a foodie mecca less than four hours away from Toronto.
Foodies will find much to love in the Automotive Capital of Canada. Check out the iconic thin and crispy Windsor pizza with canned mushrooms, shredded pepperoni and mozzarella at Armando's. Head to Motor Burger for homemade ales and bun creations like the Asian-inspired Auto-Banh Mi. Stop for brunch at the Twisted Apron or sip on local brews at Kildare House in trendy Walkerville, the home of Canadian Club and Hiram Walker, producer of J.P. Wiser’s.
And it's not just the Whisky Capital of Canada; choose from over 30 local brews on tap at Craft Heads Brewing downtown, check out the premium small-batch spirits at Wolfhead Distillery, or take a trip to Windsor Essex, the hottest wine region in Canada where you'll find Sprucewood Shores, Ontario’s only beachside-winery.
Windsor is just a four-hour drive down the 401 or Via Rail train trip from Union Station. Alternatively, hop on a one hour flight from Billy Bishop after work and make it to one of Windsor’s eclectic bars in time for happy hour.
