Could this be your place?
This issue of the Advocate is chockfull of tourism-related stories – and for good reason. It’s a great way to tell the many visitors we have this month about the great things going on in our city. It’s also a fantastic way to remind local folks just how lucky we are to live in an environment like Kawartha Lakes.
But if you are thinking about moving here, there are many reasons to take that leap. When you live in a community here, such as Lindsay, Coboconk, or Bobcaygeon to name but three, you can be anywhere you need to be within 10 minutes. No more scrambling to leave enough time for travel.
Independent, high-quality retailers offer fabulous shopping. It’s a place where you’ll get to know your barista or your favourite store owner on a first-name basis.
Excellent elementary and high schools are here, including a high school with the International Baccalaureate program. A top-notch community college is in Lindsay and you’re near Ontario’s best university (Trent.)
Ross Memorial Hospital is a full-service hospital with the latest in technology, amazing doctors and many great nurse practitioners.
There are houses and residences for any need, from detached homes to immaculate condominiums. (But, like any place in the province right now, we certainly need more.)
One of the key reasons many settle here is the natural environment, of course, where there are lush green forests, 250 lakes, trails, and conservation areas that will encourage you to walk more, feel better, and live life more fully.
Our vast rural city is also home to numerous art galleries and theatres that showcase local talent and creativity. Whether you’re a patron of the arts or an aspiring artist, you’ll find inspiration and opportunities.
Since it’s still a short drive to Toronto from here, Kawartha Lakes offers the best of both worlds. No wonder so many people are finding us and deciding to settle here. Perhaps you’ll be one of them?
