The City of Windsor is situated one mile across from the United States and Detroit, Michigan on the world’s busiest international border crossing. Comprised of nine municipalities, the 100 Mile Peninsula extends from Lighthouse Cove on Lake St. Clair, along the shoreline to Wheatley on Lake Erie, and includes Lakeshore, Tecumseh, Windsor, LaSalle, Essex, Amherstburg, Kingsville, Leamington and Pelee Island.
