Pack into the car and head out on the open road toward beautiful Kingsville, Ontario and start your tour at the Canadian Transportation of Museum and Historic Village. Drive to Adventure Bay Family Water Park and prepare to get wet! With over 35,000 square feet of wild water adventures for guests of all ages, this attraction is sure to keep you entertained the entire day with water slides and bungee swings. As night nears, if you have any energy left in you, head toward Windsor’s downtown and take in a nice dinner and show at Caesars’s Windsor; before the night’s out check out the casino for a bit of gaming. Crawl into bed after an eventful day at one of many cosy hotels in town.

Day 3:

Windsor to Oil Springs (1 hour, 58 minutes)

Don’t sleep in too late this morning, as you’ll want to be up in time to take in the beautiful street art Galleries Without Walls that Windsor downtown is known for. Pack into your car and stop in at Carrousel of the Nations (check dates in the June) to begin your world tour without ever leaving town. That afternoon drive to Oil Springs for some history; visit the Oil Museum of Canada, Uncle Tom’s Cabin and/or the Moore Museum.

After the show drive around this quaint town; stop in at a local eatery for dinner. After dinner, drive toward London and stop in for a nice meal; you are only one hour away from London, so take the time to enjoy yourself and relax for the night.
