A day at the park

No matter the season, Pelee Island is a beautiful destination. Just a two-hour drive from King Edward Apartments (1333 Ouellette Avenue), here you can find countless shops, restaurants and scenic spots to explore. If you are headed on a walk down the waterfront trail, be sure to dress warmly. During the off-season, it’s also a good idea to call ahead to anywhere you want to go to check business hours. 

Explore Ann Arbor

With the proper papers in tow, a quick trip across the border to Ann Arbor could be the TC Windsor Weekendeasy weekend adventure you are looking for. Start your getaway at the lovely Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum (1800 North Dixboro Road), where you can experience the warmth and greenery you have been craving this winter. Next, treat your family to the Hands-on Museum (220 East Ann Street), a fun-filled destination sure to delight all ages. Both attractions are less than a one-hour drive from St. Rose Apartments (7890 Saint Rose Avenue).

Savour the season

Celebrate the fun of winter before it disappears for the year. Alpine Valley (6775 Highland Road), located just across the border in southeast Michigan, boasts a breathtaking backdrop, 25 slopes, nine chairlifts, four rope tows, a magic carpet and four terrain parks. As one of the largest ski resorts in the area, prepare for a wintertime adventure like no other. To get here, drive just over 45 minutes from Carnegie Apartments (450 Victoria Avenue).

An adult retreat

Plan an overnight getaway in Essex, home to dozens of fine wineries. Start your wine-themed adventure at Oxley Estate Winery (533 County Road 50 East). You won’t be disappointed by this local staple, which is nestled along the Lake Erie North Shore wine route, a 45-minute drive from Alexander Park Apartments (3445 Riverside Drive East).
