  • Muslim Woman visiting Canada

    by bluetourist Online Now Mar 23, 2014 at 11:18 AM

    Hi! I'm a young Muslim woman from Dubai, UAE coming to Canada with my brother for approximately 15-20 days on vacation in June. I've never been to Canada before so I'm really excited but apprehensive at the same time because I wear the Islamic face-veil. (Although I've heard Canadians are nice people and are more open to other cultures) Windsor is one of our stops. Do you think I'll have a problem with wearing the veil in Windsor? I understand people might be curious and stare but I don't want to face any harassment. I plan to wear coloured ones to try and blend in a little.

    Thanks! :)

  • Headed to Michigan for Thanksgiving and want to visit Canada for a day

    by livingprayze Online Now Nov 2, 2013 at 4:55 PM

    Looking for a round trip tour/excursion from Detroit to Windsor Thanksgiving week. Can't go over in our rental car due to some regulations in place but so want to visit Canada. We'll be travelling from Florida to visit family in Michigan for that entire week and would love to find a way to take a day into the Canadian side. Thought about train but not finding any connections that would work for a day trip. Also not sure about up-to-date boat/ship info.

    hello everybody, I'm planning a trip from Toronto to Detroit.
    My question is: how can I go to the Windso arirport from the bus terminal station? I'm supposed to be at the bus station arriving from Deetroit around 5 pm and the plane departs at 7.30 pm.
    is there a shuttle service? or a train? or a bus?

    one way car hire

    by Dean&Vanessa Online Now Aug 29, 2012 at 11:05 PM


    We are looking at travelling one way from Windsor to Niagara Falls using a hire car as this sounds a more attractive option than Via Rail via Toronto.
    The only thing is that all the car hire places we could find on the internet have outrageous one way fees.
    Does anybody know of a car rental company in Windsor or Detroit that has reasonable fees to get to Niagara?

    Cheers Dean

    Safety in Windsor and Other questions

    by sabogg01 Online Now Oct 20, 2007 at 12:31 PM

    Next weekend my friend and I are coming to Windsor (We are two 25 y/o females) does anyone have a certain area that they would like to recommend a hotel as far as being safe places to stay in. We only want to stay in the safe neighborhoods, is there anywhere that we should look out for while sightseeing? We will be crossing over from Detroit on the Ambassador Bridge.
    Would it be better to stay in Windsor for 2 nights or stay in Detroit and visit Windsor for a day and then go back to Detroit? We are not looking to go to casinos or to drink on this trip. Thanks for your advice in advance!

    So it's my girlfriend's 21st bday January 1st, not to mention New Years, so I want to come up and with quite a few friends. my question is, are there any cabins around town, close enough that we can get to the bars, that can accommodate a lot of people, maybe up to 20, even if we are split up into different cabins, that would be fine!!! I just don't really want to go the hotel route, i want as many of us together as possible. thank you soo much!!!

    Market Buffet Rating

    by windsortenor Online Now Dec 22, 2006 at 4:07 AM

    I find it strange that with most of the listings in the Windsor section,11.00 -20.00 US is considered About Average, but with the buffet it is considered above average. Who sets these standards and why aren't they comparable? As far as setting these standards, I would think that a full buffet at the same price as a "special" would be a better value anyway!
