Leamington’s proximity to Lake Erie is a great boon for the city. Not only is it close to waterfront access and the beautiful Point Pelee National Park, but the city also experiences warmer temperatures on average than the rest of Southwestern Ontario. This means summers with higher humidity and milder winters all because of Lake Erie. Leamington also benefits from a 50 minute drive from the rapidly expanding city of Windsor and the border with Detroit, Michigan.

One of the many prides of Leamington is the Point Pelee National Park, a woodland and marshland that leads into Lake Erie. The park is home to hundreds of important species, some even rare in the region due to the Park’s unusually warmer climate. The Park is also the best seat in the house for the Festival of Birds, a celebration held in Leamington in May in honour of the annual Spring migration of hundreds of species of birds. Long, warm Summers attract people out to the marina and beaches while camping and hiking continue to be available through the Fall and Winter as well.
