If you’re moving to Windsor, you’ve made an excellent choice for your new home. We can assist you in any aspect of moving that you feel is most stressful. Windsor is the southernmost city in Canada, situated on the southern shore of the Detroit River. It is a major contributor to Canada’s automotive industry and is known to have a diverse culture. The area of Windsor was first inhabited by the First Nations and Native Americans. The first settlement was in 1749 but Windsor was incorporated as a village in 1854. Windsor’s economy is fundamentally based on manufacturing, tourism, education, and government services. As a border settlement, Windsor was a site of conflict amid the War of 1812. It was also a noteworthy passage point into Canada for refugees from slavery via the Underground Railroad. The city was also a major source of alcohol during American Prohibition.
Windsor has a humid continental climate with four distinct seasons. The coldest month is January and the warmest is July. Summers are hot and humid, and thunderstorms are common during this season. Overall, the climate is usually modified by its location to the lake. The lakes are also the reason for the humidity in Windsor.

Windsor has a remarkable tourism industry -- it has one of the largest casinos in Canada known as Caesars Windsor. There are two National Historic Sites of Canada in Windsor: the Sandwich First Baptist Church established by Underground Railroad refugees, and Francois Baby House, an important War of 1812 site which is now a Windsor Community Museum. If you like theatre and drama, you should visit the Capitol Theatre located in downtown Windsor which was a popular venue for feature films, plays, and several other attractions before some financial problems -- however, the theatre remains open today. The Windsor Riverfront is a must see attraction as well. In addition, other activities and attractions include Dieppe Gardens, Jackson Park, Ojibway Nature Centre, and Adventure Bay Family Water Park among many others.
