An artist retreat for the not so artsy, even better for anyone particularly interested in art. Located about halfway between Windsor and London, Chatham has become a cultural hub of arts and entertainment and is experiencing a renaissance thanks in part to unique and trendy businesses opening across town.

Windsor may be the first city that comes to your mind when you hear about Essex County; however the vibrant small communities near the shores of Lake Erie are full of amazing wining and dining as well as history and tons of friendly charm.
The best part about supporting local is getting to know the people behind the businesses that make it all happen. This knowledge allows you to properly appreciate everything that goes into running the restaurants, bakeries, distilleries, breweries, and experiences that you love.
To help you get to know the new gems across Ontario’s Southwest, we interviewed 5 tourism businesses that either opened, or were in the process of opening a new component, right before the pandemic hit.

Independently owned small businesses are the heart of communities. They are owned by your neighbours and not only are they investing their livelihoods into the towns and cities we call home but also sharing their passions with you.
While it’s an exciting prospect that so much in the region is opening back up, it still might feel a little nerve-wracking to get out of the house and “travel” again. Taking a nearby trip in Ontario's Southwest feels a little more comforting when you know you have some of the conveniences of home with you.
