Map of Essex

Welcome to Essex!

Essex is Ontario's southern-most region and is almost entirely surrounded by water. This lush region is covered in vineyards and parks, making it a popular summer destination. Be sure to visit Pelee Island, Canada's southernmost point, for a chance to see extraordinary migratory birds, beautiful monarch butterflies and second-to-none sunsets. Pelee Island is also famous for its Wine Pavilion, which offers samples of local wines and is also a frequent venue for events around the island. Windsor, the metropolitan hub of the region, has everything an urban dweller could hope for, including the bustling, world-class Casino Windsor. Explore Ontario's naval history at the rebuilt Gordon House in Amherstburg. Everyone is sure to love the charming harbour village, Port Stanley, which offers visitors the chance to ride on a 140-year-old rail line from Port Stanley to St. Thomas.
