The Riverfront is a great summer place to visit. Always so much going on. Carnivals, tall ships, fireworks. Parking areas right on the water. Great place for an evening stroll.

A great hang out spot in Summer. Check out the huge flag pole that went up this spring at the foot of Oulette. Would recommend biking, walking, and roller blades any day of the week. Best to head in doors when the sun goes down.

Well kept. Beautifully landscaped. Perfect place for a long walk or quality family time. Great views at night of both Detroit and Windsor.

After years of fighting for regaining and beautifying the water front, today's Windsorites and tourists have the fortunate luck of experiencing a vibrant waterfront, a great place to bring the family during the summer.

The riverfront in Windsor has changed a great deal since I lived in Windsor some sixty years ago. It's a delight to walk along the trails to see the beautiful gardens and watch the freighters drift by. There are also fountains to add a sparkle...More

Nothing on the riverfront any more. There was a place but it's gone. These guys will take care of you and not far from the riverfront at all. City Cyclery 226-674-0648

It depends, where are you coming from? You need a passport to cross the border from the United States. If you fly in you must pass through customs. Check your airline ticket information it will tell you.
