5 BEST BRAGS FOR WINDSOR ESSEX

The 8th Annual Best of Windsor Essex Awards have been announced spotlighting the best of the best in 48 award categories. From the best shopping spot to the best beds to lay your head we’ve covered off the BEST things to see and do in Windsor Essex. Below are our 5 Best Brags to showcase Windsor Essex

  1. BEST HOUSE THAT WHISKY BUILT

The historic Walkerville district was founded by whisky tycoon Hiram Walker and is home to hip eateries, cozy pubs, chic cocktail lounges, stylish boutiques, grand homes and stately parks. When you’re throwing around the brags be sure to mention Walkerville Brewery, winner of Best Brewery Experience and of course, the quintessential Walkerville landmark – Willistead Manor winner of Best Historical Attraction and Best City Photo Op.

  1. BEST COLOSSEUM OUTSIDE OF ROME

All roads may lead to Rome but when you’re looking for the Best Live Performance Venue with world-class entertainment look no further than The Colosseum at Caesars Windsor. For the full Roman experience head to the gaming floor at Caesars Windsor, winner of Best Gaming Attraction and extend your stay at the AAA, Four-Diamond Caesars Hotel overlooking the beautiful Windsor Riverfront.

  1. BEST WAY TO GET TO THE POINT OF YOUR STORY

If someone were to ask you what the point of a trip to Essex County is, your answer should be: the point, of course! Point Pelee National Park that is. Winner of Best Beach and Best Birding Hub plus a finalist for Best Trail this small but mighty National Park packs a picturesque punch, which is why it is also the winner of the Best County Photo Op award. Staying in theme pick up a bottle of Pelee Island Wine (Best Winery Experience) and head over to the Pelee Island Winery Pavillion for the best Pelee Island Photo Op.

  1. BEST BED OF FLOWERS

It may not be a bed of roses but you can rest your head at Magnolia Ranch Bed & Breakfast, winner of Best Bed & Breakfast, for a delightful night sleep. If frolicking through a grove is more your style, head to The Grove Hotel, winner of Best Unique Stay. To bring home your very own bed of flowers stop by Cindy’s Home & Garden (Best Boutique Shop) and Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens (Best Family Friendly Attraction). Pick up fresh local fruits, veggies and treats at the winner of Best Farmers Market or Shop: Willow Tree Market and then stroll through the flower beds of King’s Navy Yard Park and the Windsor Sculpture Garden.

  1. BEST PLATE OF PASTA OUTSIDE OF NONNA’S HOUSE

Nonna is a tough one to beat… but if anyone is up to the challenge it is the winner of Best Pasta House: Spago! This place is so great they also took home the award for Best Date Night Spot. Our suggestion? Give nonna a night off from cooking and take her for a date night and a plate of scrumptious pasta from Spago. With three locations in Windsor, including at the award-winning Caesars Windsor, you’ll be Nonna’s favourite for a long time!

BONUS BRAG: BEST PIZZA PIE, PRETTY MUCH, ANYWHERE

It’s no secret that Windsor-style pizza is a fan-favourite locally and around the world. So a list of brags wouldn’t be complete without including the winner of Best Pizza Pie for 2023: OG (Original Guys) Pizza Pies. Those sliced pepperoni, that canned mushroom, Galati cheese… mmm.. is your mouth watering yet? Grab a pie for dinner tonight and have your BEST Night!
