It’s often the most unassuming ideas that end up making the biggest impact. Living in Bradford, Ontario, is a case in point. With the perfect balance between dynamic urban living and the great outdoors, Bradford makes perfect sense for those looking for an alternative to city life. Here are four main reasons the jewel of Simcoe should undoubtedly be on your new-home shortlist.
1. This community is going places.
Bradford continues to grow at a rapid pace—the fastest-growing town in Simcoe County—its diverse population of 30,000 comprising mostly young people under age 50. It has also been touted as one of the safest communities in Canada, according to a recent story by Maclean’s magazine. And due to all of the above reasons and more, Bradford has been earmarked as one of the best places in Southern Ontario to start or grow a new business.
2. Find everything at your fingertips.
Bradford offers plenty of convenient and vibrant shopping opportunities, minutes from Cachet Bradford Urban Towns. Residents are also an arm’s length from diverse dining and myriad arts and culture venues. You could literally do something different every night of the week. With community festivals and events held in every season throughout the year, such as the famous Bradford Farmers’ Market, you’ll have even more reason to call this town home. Throw in the 17 public schools, childcare options and health facilities, and you have all the makings of a family-friendly community.

3. Nature is right at your doorstep.
In Bradford, you’re able to get active in the great outdoors whenever it suits you. With more than 25 parks and nine nature trails, the region is ripe for spending time alone or with friends immersed in a natural environment—mountain biking, cross-country skiing, whatever your particular passion. The Scanlon Creek Conservation area is a few minutes from downtown, with its more than 500 acres of walking trails. The Holland Marsh wetland also provides a unique escape from urban dwelling. As well, the nearby sports fields and arenas for soccer and hockey and baseball add a welcome team layer to the recreational mix. The fact that Lake Simcoe is just minutes away is an added bonus.
4. The location couldn’t be better.
If you plan to commute to downtown Toronto, you will benefit from easy highway access and public transit options. Bradford is just an hour from Toronto. Cachet Bradford Urban Towns is just steps from the Bradford Go Station and minutes from Highway 400 and 404, putting you within easy reach of practically everything.
