Essex is a town with a population of 20,427 in Essex County in southwestern Ontario, Canada, whose municipal borders extend to Lake Erie. Discover out-of-the-way places like John R. Park Homestead & Conservation Area and Sanson Estate Winery. Do some cultural sightseeing at Erie Shore Vineyard and Black Bear Farms of Ontario Estate Winery. Step out of Essex to go to Amherstburg and see Bois Blanc Island Lighthouse & Blockhouse, which is approximately 34 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Historic Essex Railway Station, walk around Austin 'Toddy' Jones Park, relax in the rural setting at The Fruit Wagon, and look for gifts at Old Dutch Guys Chocolate.

For traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Essex trip planner.

Toronto to Essex is an approximately 4-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of flight and car. Expect a daytime high around 20°C in October, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Pelee Island.
