Five Toronto Neighborhoods to Consider For Your Move
If you’re thinking about moving in to the City of Toronto, we can help you with the headache of packing and moving your items to your new home, but have you decided exactly where you want to live yet? Here is our list of five of the best neighborhoods in Toronto you may want to consider moving to. Hope we can help with your decision.
1. Rosedale – Moore Park
Are you looking to move in to an area that has one of the best views in the city? Look no further than the Rosedale – Moore Park neighborhood. Rosedale overlooks the the downtown Toronto, which makes for a lovely view on a sunny day or a clear evening. Living in Rosedale comes with a steep price tag, the average cost of a house in the wealthy neighborhood is over $950,000. If you can afford to live here, go for it, and you can bring up in conversation with your friends that you live in the same neighborhood as Canada’s wealthiest man, David Thomson.
2. High Park – Swansea
If you’re looking for a place to settle with your young family, the High Park – Swansea area might be the one for you. High Park is one of the beautiful parks Toronto has to offer it’s residents, and is often filled with families enjoying a nice picnic during the summer months. The neighborhood is filled with a large array of personalities that will always make for interesting walks through the neighborhood.
3. Mount Pleasant West
We would recommend this area for a person who is regularly on the go. The area is filled with condos and apartment buildings (high population density), as well as lovely restaurants and coffee shops that are often occupied by young people in the area. The Mount Pleasant West neighborhood has great access to transit, which makes it a popular spot for those who work and spend a lot of time downtown Toronto. This is not somewhere you want to be if you plan on starting a family in the next couple of years.
4. The Beaches
Everyone loves the beach, right? So why not live there for 365 days? The Beaches are one of Toronto’s most popular neighborhoods, especially in the Summer of course, for obvious reasons. The Beaches neighborhood is popular for its 3.5km boardwalk, in which you can always find a couple enjoying a nice walk, or someone going on a bike ride as their exercise for the day. The Beaches neighborhood is also home to Ashbridges Bay, which hosts a number of outdoor events during the year, including a large show of fireworks on major Canadian holidays.
The Mimico neighborhood is one of Toronto’s hidden/forgotten gems, it is a fairly quiet community that is packed with tons of outdoor activities all year around. Other than its various outdoor activities, Mimico shares a boarder with Lake Ontario which boasts a beautiful waterfront that will catch anyone’s attention. If you like to be near the water and enjoy outdoor activities from January to December, Mimico might be the place in Toronto for you and your family.
