Near the tip of Lake Erie, and right across from Detroit, Michigan, Windsor happens to be the southernmost city in all of Canada. Whether you’re crossing over from the United States, or just taking a trip across Ontario, it’s a great spot to pay a visit. Dubbed the “City of Roses,” its waterfront parks and the Coventry Gardens have indeed become big tourist attractions and are beautiful places to take a morning or afternoon to walk around. Be sure to also visit some of the art museums and the Windsor Sculpture Park if you’re interested in art, and check out these Airbnb’s below for some great options for accommodation while you make your way around the city.
A great place to stay for multiple nights, this studio for 2 will feel like another home. This is in fact on the Detroit side of the river, but still has easy access to Windsor, and any sites you might want to visit in Detroit, including 2 breweries and multiple restaurants close by. You’ll find yourself equipped with a kitchenette, a full bed and bath, and even off-street parking!
