Located in southwestern Ontario along the Avon River, Stratford is named after Stratford-upon-Avon in England. Many residents of apartments for rent enjoy exploring the beautiful Arthur Meighen and Shakespearean Gardens or strolling along the scenic Avon River or the 100-kilometre Avon walking trail. Don’t forget to purchase an inexpensive bag of swan food to feed the graceful birds that call the Avon River home. Thanks to more than 1,000 acres of scenic gardens and parkland, Stratford is considered one of Canada’s most beautiful cities. Stratford apartment rentals offer you the opportunity to attend the famous Stratford Shakespeare Festival which is the largest in North America. If you’re considering renting an apartment in Stratford, you should note that the city has two golf courses and offers many recreational opportunities, including canoeing, hiking, tennis, ice skating, tobogganing, swimming and paddle boating. London, Toronto and Sarnia are not far from Stratford, and trains frequently travel to Niagara Falls, Windsor, Toronto, London and Kitchener.
