Join us in discovering Amherstburg by watching the first video in the ‘Small Town Getaways’ series, created in conjunction with Ontario’s Southwest and Arienne from See You Soon Travel.

Located right on the banks of the Detroit River, this charming and walkable community is home to award winning gardens, stunning water views, history and architecture, eclectic shopping, unique festivals and the famous Waterfront ice cream store! Take a look at what a weekend getaway is like! Highlights include a visit to Fort Malden National Historic Site, sampling some brews at GL Heritage Brewing Company and staying at Bondy House B & B.

Not to be missed are the many lively patios and delicious pub style fare around every corner.  Drop by the The Salty Dog for a pint and a bite, or stroll down to Riccardo’s Italian Restaurant or the Artisan Grill for locally sourced mouth-watering dishes. Don’t miss the new, chic coffee house Caffeine & Co with its delicious desserts made fresh in-house that will surely be the treat your sweet tooth is looking for!

While you are there, tour the luscious gardens, sculptures and fountain in the legendary Kings Navy Yard Park. Learn about the Underground Railroad and Black Heritage at the Amherstburg Freedom Museum or take in birding and nature at Holiday Beach Conservation Area. Whatever it is that you are looking for, you are sure to find it in Amherstburg!
