Why live in Norfolk County?

Sitting on the north shore of Lake Erie, Norfolk County is part of Ontario’s south coast. Roughly halfway between Hamilton and London, and not far from Niagara or Toronto, the city has an unbeatable location. Not only do you have access to many of Ontario’s largest cities, but you also have all the benefits that come from being in a small city on a breathtaking Great Lake. Norfolk County’s small size means residents are never more than ten minutes from beaches, breweries, golf courses, parks, and even the office. Although the municipality has long been popular among cottage-goers, it has only recently seen a surge in its permanent population. This is in large part due to its convenience, affordability, and natural beauty. Did you know that the northern shores of Lake Erie, where Norfolk County is located, are known as the Gold Coast of Ontario? It’s true. This is due to the fact that Lake Erie has several white sand beaches and crystal clear water, making it feel like something in Australia or the Caribbean. This lakeside access means that Norfolk County residents can enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities, like boating, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming, diving, and more. A few of the most popular spots to see are Port Dover Beach, Turkey Point Beach in Turkey Point Provincial Park, Long Point Public Beach, and Long Point National Wildlife Area. A little further inland you will find all sorts of hiking, walking, and snowshoeing trails at Deer Creek Conservation Area, Backus Heritage Conservation Area, Haldimand Conservation Area, and Waterford North Conservation Area. Beyond the area’s breathtaking scenery, Norfolk County is known for its thriving food and culture scene. They have several top-notch restaurants, bars, golf courses, farmers’ markets, and even a lavender field (Apple Hill Lavender). Norfolk County also hosts several festivals throughout the year, like the Waterford Pumpkin Festival. Given the area’s proximity to Niagara, it likely won’t come as a surprise that Norfolk County also has many quality wineries worth checking out, such as Burning Kiln Winery, Frisky Beaver Wines, Blueberry Hill Estates, and Hounds of Erie Winery. Other attractions worth checking out in Norfolk County include Whistling Gardens botanical garden, Port Dover Harbour Museum, Waterford Antique Market, Lighthouse Festival Theatre Corp, and Long Point Bird Observatory. Finally, one more reason to live in Norfolk County is that it is affordable and yet it is still close enough to other major city centres that you can take advantage of the economic opportunities available there.

For example, northwest of Norfolk County in London, you will find the University of Western Ontario (known as “Western,”), and to the northeast in Hamilton, there is Mohawk College and McMaster University. Kitchener-Waterloo and Guelph are also immediately north of Norfolk County, which are home to Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo, and the University of Guelph.
