Here’s a little-known fact: Niagara Region’s climate is substantially milder than the climate in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). That’s because of its unique location between Lakes Erie and Ontario, demising the northern edge of the Great Carolinian Forest, where you’ll find plant life that generally doesn’t like severe winters.
While retiring to Niagara Region isn’t exactly retiring to the deep South, there are many advantages to living here, not the least of which is an earlier spring, a milder winter and a fairly temperate summer.
Niagara’s unique climate offers many other advantages, as well, not the least of which is a longer growing season, which has created perfect conditions for fruit orchards and vineyards. In fact, Niagara Region’s vineyards produce amazing grapes that have given us a reputation for world renowned fine wines.
In practical terms, this means that while those living in the GTA are still sporting winter apparel, the residents of Niagara often turn out in shorts and tee shirts.
So, if living in a bungalow or bungalow townhouse is your idea of the ideal retirement lifestyle, make sure it’s located in Niagara Region. Better yet, make sure you retire to a Blythwood community. Blythwood is famous for innovative designs and unrivalled quality. Then get set to enjoy a better retirement lifestyle.
