Windsor Essex Family Fun Guide

A couple weeks ago, my family went on a road trip to the Windsor-Essex area. I went to Windsor for the first time back in July on a girls trip with a few other bloggers and honestly, I didn't have high expectations.
I'd never had any desire to visit Windsor before because I thought it had nothing to offer - but I was SO wrong!
I had so much fun on that girls trip that I decided to go back again before the summer ended - this time with my family.
I had a bunch of questions from you guys on Instagram after I posted stories of our stay.
You guys wanted to know where we stayed and the must see places for families, so today, I'm sharing where to stay and what to do on a family road trip to Windsor, Ontario.

Stay in a Luxury Cottage

Is this not the most gorgeous little cottage you've ever seen?!
It's actually a luxury trailer and it was the perfect place for our family to stay while visiting the Windsor- Essex area.
It is located at Rochester Place Resort and our cottage looked out on a beautiful 18 hole golf course.
I wrote a review of our stay at Rochester Place Resort HERE.

Visit A Surf Shop

I first introduced you guys to Urban Surf in my Millennial Entrepreneurs post last month.
I knew as soon as I visited Urban Surf back in July that my family would LOVE it here.
Water sports, smoothies, good music playing, art and good vibes.
The staff at Urban Surf are so incredible it  literally feels like you are hanging out with best friends in California or something!
My kids asked me more than once if we could move to the Windsor area just so we could hang out at Urban Surf and paddle board all the time. 
We visited twice on our three day trip.
The first time Myself, Louis, Audrey and Luca went for a canoe ride while Emma stayed back and learned some skateboarding tips from the owner, Danielle.
We came back on the last day so the girls could go paddle boarding and they had a blast!
You can see more of our time at Urban Surf in the VLOG above.
Visit A Museum

On our second day in Windsor, Ontario we visited the Chimczuk Museum. I was actually super nervous to go visit a museum with the kids. Luca is four now, but he is a BUSY four and doesn't do all that well at quiet activities. I envisioned boredum turning into tantrums but thankfully, I was way wrong. The Chimczuk Museum is the perfect museum to visit as a family! They have this wonderful interactive children's gallery that the kids absolutely loved. You'll see in the VLOG at the top of this post all the fun they had.

 Eat At A Yummy Restaurant

After the museum the kids were hungry so we stopped at Bubi's Awesome Eats which was just a 5 minute walk away from the museum. It was featured on the Food Network and is known for it's copious garlic usage across the menu. We sat outside on a lovely patio to enjoy the beautiful sunny day and so Luca could walk around a bit. Like I said, this kid is busy haha.
My favourite dish off the menu were the garlic pizza crusts my daughter ordered. It was basically a giant plate of garlicky crusts (my favourite part of pizza)with dipping sauce. I highly reccomend this place if you are in the area.

 Splash Around At Adventure Bay 



After Lunch we walked to Adventure Bay Family Water Park.
We were a little upset upon arriving because we found out they had temporarily closed the Cannon Cove Play area that Luca was really excited to play at but Adventure Bay has so much to offer we still had a blast! There were 10 water slides, a surf simulator, wave pool, lazy river, slides for the younger kids and more!
The kids didn't want to leave!

Thank you so much Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island for having us.
