Windsor is the most southern city in Canada. It’s located just across the Detroit River from Detroit, Michigan. The average home price is $186,612. Given the proximity to Detroit, it’s not surprising that Windsor has a long history in automobile manufacturing. The casino resort employs many residents is a big draw for tourists. The pharmaceutical, higher education, insurance and Internet industries also play a role in the local economy. Given Detroit’s reputation for crime, one might assume Windsor also has high crime rate. In actuality, it has a low crime rate, particularly homicide. The downside of the area is that it experiences the most thunderstorms, lightning and tornadic activity in Canada. Additionally, proximity to polluting industries means residents suffer from more respiratory illnesses due to bad air quality and smog.
