As many time as I have visited Michigan over the past many years,
I have only been in Detroit a very few times and never have I visited Windsor.
Our trip this summer included not only a trip into Detroit,
but also a cruise on the Detroit River, which I thoroughly enjoyed!
Promises have been made, and next summer we will include Windsor in our list of things 'todo'!

The Detroit River is one of the busiest waterways in the world.
The river travels south from Lake St. Clair to Lake Erie,
and the whole river carries the international border between Canada and the United States
as an important transportation route connecting
Lake Michigan, Huron, and Superior to the St. Lawrence Seaway and Erie Canal.
The river divides the major metropolitan areas of Detroit, Michigan, and Windsor, Ontario —
an area referred to as Detroit–Windsor.
The Detroit River is designated an American Heritage River and a Canadian Heritage River —
the only river to have this dual designation.
