Our home in Windsor

(Note: This post was written by Laurel Regan and originally published in a separate blog called “Why Windsor…”, which was later merged with Alphabet Salad.)

A huge, important decision now faces us – probably second in hugeness and importance only to our initial decision to uproot ourselves from Victoria, BC and move to Windsor, Ontario. That decision, of course, is… Where in Windsor do we want to live?

My husband was born in Ottawa, Ontario, and lived there for most of his life. I visited Ottawa for 10 days back in the mid 1990s. But… and this is a confession that may well make some of you question our sanity… neither of us has ever been to Windsor.

Setting aside the question of our sanity (which is a whole other topic!), I thought I’d share some of the research I’ve been doing as we consider where we might want to put down our roots.

Real Estate Windsor Ontario: “Communities and Neighbourhoods in Windsor, Ontario”

City of Windsor: “Best Start and Natural Neighbourhood Boundaries”

Wikipedia: “Neighbourhoods of Windsor, Ontario”

windsoriteDOTca discussion thread: “Hey Windsorite! Tell us what neighbourhood you live in, and what you like about it!”

Talk Windsor discussion thread: “So, where would YOU live (or NOT live)?”

We’re still processing all the information, so as to where we actually end up, I guess we’ll just have to see! Stay tuned…
