“My exciting week in Windsor (Detroit Marathon 2009)!”
Reviewed 25 October 2009

I was running the Detroit Marathon and had a week to myself, and since there is a direct flight from my hometown of Duluth (DLH) to Detroit, I decided to make a vacation out of it. Going through customs was easy - and I did it four times (with the marathon expo and the actual marathon) - the Windsor Transit tunnel bus is the best way to get to and from Detroit. I was never confused about where to wait or when the bus would arrive.
I stayed at University Place (3140 Peter St). I'm interested in attending the University of Windsor anyway, so I was able to be near the campus and visit a few times to get a feel for the area. I really liked it - the diversity, the people, there were things to do, I felt safe, and I am definitely coming back. The marathon was wonderful (it starts in Detroit and weaves through Windsor and then back into Detroit) and we ran right past the area I was staying. Although I am used to newer, modern cities (I admit at first I was kind of unsure about the neighbourhood because it looked so old - I wasn't sure if it was a bad part of town or just the students area) I was comfortable walking around and doing the same things I do here in Duluth. I had a great stay at Univ. Place and am already planning on coming back to Windsor soon.
