The Region of Niagara offers a unique combination of a small town with a major tourist attraction. The Region of Niagara is made up of small towns including Niagara Falls, St. Catharines, and Niagara On the Lake. This small town still offers affordable homes but thanks to the booming tourism, it also offers many unique business opportunities. No other city will give you the small town experience with Canada’s major tourist attraction only minutes away.

Living near three borders between United States and Canada; Rainbow, Peace, Queenston-Lewiston allows you to experience what the state of New York has to offer; such as Seneca Casino and Fashion Outlet Niagara. With the Loonie so strong, it is worth going on a shopping spree in Buffalo.  

 

Tourist Attraction: Enjoy all the attractions and special events that Niagara Falls has to offer. Enjoy concerts at the Avlon room in Fallsview Casino where acts like. With three casinos within the small vicinity indulge in your guilty pleasure of gambling.  Or you can take a little time to rest and relax at a bed and breakfast in Niagara On the Lake.

 

Transportation: From May to October experience healthy living by participating in the Cycling Campaign where participants can win prizes just by cycling to work or for leisure.  There are major transportation projects in the talks such as extending the Go transit and the Via Rail to the Niagara Region, Cross Lake Ferry Service, and expanding the Garden City Skyway, which is a high level bridge that allows motorists to cross the Welland Canal. Not only does the transit offer transportation around the city, but they also offer a shuttle bus to major attractions like Marineland, Downtown, and Lundy’s Lane.

 

Housing: The Niagara Region still offers affordable housing and low property tax. With Brock University in St. Catharines, minutes away from Niagara Falls will give a unique campus experience that would not be experience in Toronto or anywhere else in Ontario. They promote healthy living in a way to make exercising fun and enjoyable.
