A passage to Point Pelee and Windsor Essex is an excellent getaway. The climate of the Lake Erie Islands Archipelago boasts the highest heat units in the country and the longest frost-free season in Ontario. This helps make the flora and fauna of Point Pelee rather unique.
Travac’s adventure goes far beyond Point Pelee. You’ll enjoy a river cruise that highlights the architecture of both Windsor and Detroit. Taste the best Windsor has to offer and experience life in Windsor in the 1920’s on a Rum Runners tour.
Your holiday includes round trip transportation on a deluxe chartered coach, 3 night’s accommodation at Caesars, 2 lunches, 1 dinner, a full sightseeing program and the services of a Travac Tours Director.
