Essex is a town with a population of 20,427 in Essex County in southwestern Ontario, Canada, whose municipal borders extend to Lake Erie. Appreciate the collections at John R. Park Homestead & Conservation Area and Essex County Steam & Gas Engine Museum. Get a sense of the local culture at Paglione Estate Winery and Colchester Ridge Estate Winery. Venture out of the city with trips to Bois Blanc Island Lighthouse & Blockhouse (in Amherstburg) and Tremblay Beach Conservation Area (in Lakeshore). And it doesn't end there: learn about winemaking at Erie Shore Vineyard, see the interesting displays at Amherstburg Freedom Museum, play a few rounds at Oxley Beach Golf Course, and don't miss a visit to Historic Essex Railway Station.

To see other places to visit, photos, maps, and tourist information, read our Essex trip itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 32°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
