Plenty of Reasons to Staycation in Walkerville

Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island | May 26, 2016

Traveling is an exciting journey of discovery. There’s always something new and fresh around every corner. To celebrate Tourism Month in June, we’ve launched this series of blog posts themed around the eleven Windsor Essex Staycations we are giving away.  We’re thrilled to share with you why you should choose to Staycation this summer and uncover the #plentyofreasons why your backyard is an amazing place to play. Take a few minutes to browse through the entire series for fun ideas and new adventures throughout Windsor Essex Pelee Island.

Here is your chance to experience the old & new of Windsor in historic Walkerville. Walkerville was founded by Hiram Walker and his Canadian Club distillery – and you’ll have the chance to take a VIP tour and learn how prohibition helped shaped our city.

Explore the boutique shops like Timeless Treasures along the streets of Walkerville, or take a stroll through the residential streets dotted with Victorian era historic homes and mansions. You wont leave hungry – Walkerville is dotted with quaint restaurants and bistros – you’ll be able to grab a bite from one of the hottest bakeries in town at the Little White Kitchen Baking Co. Or take home some of the food knowledge and help create your meal inside The Chef Next Door to The Twisted Apron.

Before you head home you’ll have the chance to sip some of Walkerville Breweries suds, located in one of the old Canadian club grain elevators. The Windsor – Walkerville Staycation grand prize includes (approximate retail value $275.00):

  • VIP tour and tasting for two at the Canadian Club Brand Heritage Center
