Anxious about making the move from the big city to Caledon?

Don’t be. You’re going to love it.

As someone who’s been living here and working in real estate for over 22 years, when I say “I love Caledon”, I truly mean it.

But, seeing it for yourself is how you truly fall in love with this wonderful region. From the community that thrives within each township, to the beautiful greenery that covers the region located within The Greenbelt, everyday you find something new to be grateful for in your own backyard.

Fun fact: Caledon is part of the Peel Region and is made up of 18 villages. Each brings a unique quality and personality to what makes Caledon such a peaceful and friendly place to live. It also checks off just about everything you need when moving to a new community. Caledon is: I could name 100+ reasons why you’ll love Caledon, but here are 5 to get started:
 
1. Happening Hospitality
Are you a big foodie and love a good Instagrammable photo when out on the town?

One of the best attractions of each town is the infamous restaurants and Inns offering awesome homemade-like cuisine served by the friendly faces of your community. You’ll always find the Caledon Inn in Caledon East and Cheeks in Bolton a buzz on any given night with laughter, love and good grub.
2. Friendly Neighbourhood Community
Looking to get to know your neighbours and truly be part of a community?

Cool off on hot summer nights and weekends by refreshing yourself with an ice cream served up at the local ice cream shop in your town. The locals of Caledon are so friendly and inclusive, you’ll always feel at home. There is always someone new to meet, a good story to be told, or something new to learn when hanging out with locals at the ice cream shop – plus they love to boast about how awesome their town is.
3. Endless Outdoor Adventures
Are you a big hiker or cyclist?

The Caledon region is your oasis. Infamous trails run throughout the entire region, perfect for weekend outings. They’re so perfect, even city folk find their way over for weekend getaways exploring the many parks and trails of the region, especially during the colourful fall season.

Whether you’re looking for an afternoon walk with the kids, or a hike with your friends and partner, The Great Trail, Caledon Trailway, and Bruce Trail are perfect for your mini adventures.
4. Accessible Transportation
Worried about getting back and forth from the city?

Regardless of which town you’re in, easily access major highways connecting you to Toronto and the Niagara region. Caledon is conveniently located just north of Brampton, making it a quick trip to the 400, 407, 427 and 410, linking you directly to the 403 and 401. Getting to and from work in the city couldn’t be more simple when you’ve got the entire 400 series within close proximity.

Not a driver? Hop on regularly scheduled GO buses connecting you to Brampton and on to Toronto. With the expansion of the TTC now available all the way to Vaughan, moving out of the city has become a lot more accessible for anyone regularly travelling throughout the Peel Region and the Greater Toronto Area.

Are you a big business traveller? Swiftly get to and from the Pearson airport without the hassle of endless traffic or needing to plan an extra hour ahead to get there on time.
 
5. Safe and Sound
Did you know Caledon is among one of the safest cities in Canada?

Whether your looking to raise a family or relax in retirement, enjoy the respectful, diverse, and inclusive community that makes up Caledon. Wake up to the sound of chirping birds every morning rather than the buzz of traffic, and run errands without having to put aside an extra hour of driving.
