Back in the good old days before the Muslims fucked everything with 911 Americans under 21 would come to Windsor to drink and party and then go home after a fun night in Canada.I work with people from Detroit. They all said that when they were 18, they would go to Windsor to get drunk and puke all over the place. Then get back to asap.
It was similar in Ft Erie Ontario, young Buffalonians would cross over to drink in Ontario until 1AM then Canadians (including yours truly) would head over to Buffalo to drink until 4AM as the bars were open much later.
To cross the border? No passport needed, they (US/Canada border guards) didn't even ask for ID 99% of the time, just a verbal declaration of citizenship. I crossed hundreds of times between Ft Erie and Buffalo up until 2001 and was never asked to prove I am Canadian.
Also, I crossed with less than $40 in my pocket most times. The US border guys probably wouldn't let you in to America nowadays with that small an amount of cash.
Detroit/Windsor & Buffalo/Ft Erie were basically the same city except for a checkpoint between them.
Those days are long gone.
Edit: Also, even with all the foreign puke on the streets from drunk underage Americans Windsor was still 1000X cleaner and safer than Detroit.
