Detroit occupies a strategic spot along the Detroit River, which forms part of the link between Lake Huron and Lake Erie. Downtown Detroit is set along the north bank of the Detroit River, with Windsor, Ontario, on the opposite side. Jefferson Avenue runs parallel to the river, and numerous downtown landmarks are situated there, including the Renaissance Center, the Cobo Conference and Exhibition Center and Belle Isle. Residents use Woodward Avenue, which runs perpendicular to Jefferson and cuts through the center of downtown, to demarcate the east and west sides of the city and its suburbs. Downtown encompasses two smaller districts that are popular destinations for visitors: Greektown (a few blocks full of restaurants and bars, just inland from the river and just east of Woodward) and the Foxtown District (along Woodward Avenue, about 0.5 mi/1 km from the river).
