What to Do in Amherstburg, Ontario: One of the Most Historic, Picturesque Towns in the Province

If you’re looking for a historic town with colourful gardens, access to a lovely waterfront, restaurants and cafes worth visiting, and no shortage of good shopping and festivals – then look no further than Amherstburg, Ontario.

If there’s one thing I love, it’s the opportunity to better explore quaint Ontario towns. Many longtime readers will know that I moved back to this province in 2017, and since then I’ve been in full exploration mode, intensely focused on seeing all that Ontario travel has to offer.

What I love most about exploring this province is that there’s always another chapter to read, always another place to explore. Sometimes, I think we forget that Ontario is actually bigger than France and Spain combined!

I’ve spent a fair bit of time making trips back and forth to Southwestern Ontario, visiting places like Kingsville and Port Stanley, and yet somehow, until now, I hadn’t visited Amherstburg. The moment I arrived in the town I knew this article was an inevitability, so I got to work researching and exploring, and here we are.

I want to share what to do in Amherstburg for your visit, so you can make the most of your time in what can only be described as an absolute hidden gem in the region of Windsor Essex Pelee Island.
