21 REASONS WE LOVE CORNWALL, ONTARIO & AREA
Why Do We Love Cornwall, Ontario?
A local Century 21 Real Estate Agent, Mike VanderMeer, and I have compiled a list of the reasons we love Cornwall, Ontario. We’ve compiled 21 reasons, which we will share with you, one at a time. We would love to hear the reasons you love to live here too!
#6: A GREAT PLACE TO RETIRE
IN 2018, CORNWALL PLACED NUMBER 7 IN THE TOP TEN PLACES TO RETIRE IN ONTARIO according to MoneySense.
Our favorable ranking is based on our weather, health care access, crime rates, and the cost of owning property. Consider that a property in Oakville costing $850,000 can be purchased in Cornwall for about $250,000. That certainly builds up the nest egg for retirement living.
With approximately 120 days per year with a temperature above 20°C, our climate makes for a very comfortable place to live. “Similar to most of southern Ontario, Cornwall has a humid continental climate (Köppen Dfa/Dfb) with cold, snowy winters and warm, humid summers. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornwall,_Ontario#Climate
With our modern hospital with close to 400 beds and around 1,000 healthcare professionals, medical services are close at hand. In addition, we have over 80 Doctors and Nurse Practitioners and more than 25 dentists in Cornwall. Several Nursing Homes and Senior residences are located in Cornwall and Area. Since we are the designated delivery agent for Land Ambulance Service our citizens can rest assured that fast and efficient care is in place.
With public transit, taxi, and handicap transit paired with our excellent bike path system and very low traffic levels, getting around is a breeze!
