Oakville is a vibrant city with big-city amenities, but it also maintains its small-town charm. Oakville is situated on the western side of Lake Ontario, allowing you to soak up amazing views of the lake and city skyline. You can explore the charming downtown area filled with unique boutique shops, cafes and gourmet restaurants or enjoy a relaxing stroll beside the peaceful harbour and harbourfront parks. You can also take advantage of the many cultural, recreational and entertainment activities that the city has to offer year around.
Are you working in downtown Toronto? Do you need to be close to the City? Not a concern as it is a convenient drive to and from the downtown Toronto core, making it a very desirable place to live for professionals. It is a convenient 30 minute drive into Toronto and if you do not feel like driving you can opt for the two GO train stations located strategically in Oakville. You can easily explore the attractions of downtown Toronto or you can head out of town for a day of adventure in the nearby Niagara region or up north to the scenic Muskoka cottage country. All in all, Oakville is an ideal place to find the perfect mix of urban and rural life.
If you are a family that is considering moving to Oakville, one of the most important factors you may want to consider is the school systems. Where do they rate in the GTA? What do local families post about online? You will be pleased to know that Oakville has a wide variety of private and highly rated public and Catholic schools. Your family will love the biking/walking trails as you tour around Oakville (hopefully with me!). One thing I have always loved about Oakville when my kids were young is the family-friendly energy that this town holds. During Christmas, there are parades and Santa events! And summer by the waterfront, you’ll find cultural and art events. There is always something to explore and see in this beautiful town!
Oakville was rated the best place to live in Canada in 2018 and I personally agree. My family chose to relocate to Oakville 18 years ago with schools and lifestyle being two important factors and we couldn’t be happier.
