Oakville is in the center of southwestern Ontario and part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) close to numerous cultural activities and metropolitan centers but with ready access to lakes and rural living. The GTA is known for its vast multiculturalism and we have activities that appeal to all passions; trendy cuisine, theatre, live music, summer festivals and outdoor pursuits such as biking, hiking, boating, riding and so much more! There are several popular attractions in the area including the Niagara region with its wine and The Falls, the famous Bruce Trail (one of the longest and well known hiking trails in North America) and immediate access to the Great Lakes waterway system. It is also possible to escape to Ontario’s famous “cottage country” where lakes, rivers and wild spaces provide even the most ardent adventurer with plenty to explore all year round.
