Travel Forums North America Windsor, Ontario for a week

I'm off to Windsor, Ontario for a firefighter competition, anyone have any suggestions on accommodation, places to see while there for the short period of late September.
Any help would be appreciated.

Not too much in Windsor itself, it's mostly Casinos and drunk 19 and 20 year old Americans who cross the border to take advantage of the younger drinking age.

Outside of Windsor you might be able to find some nice hiking or beaches up a little north if you have the time.

In September, you could go across the border into Detroit and catch either a baseball game (Detroit Tigers) or a football game (Detroit Lions). Detroit is just across the river. You will need a passport and maybe a visa, depending on your nationality, though.

Toronto is only 4 hours away as well, which has lots of great tourist sites.

And if you are coming this far, can you take a couple extra days to see Niagara Falls? It's about 6 hours I suppose from Windsor.

I agree with Greg, Windsor doesn't have much but a casino and underage Americans. Nice city, but not much there.
