WEll, I'm certainly glad I hauled up this old post. I had no idea Peterborough had such a problem. Thanks for pointing it out.

MOntreal? Snow? mmmm, not sure I could handle more snow!!

Collingwood is definately on my list to check out. I was up that way recently and saw all the new building going near the water.

Now Sarnia! I had never really given it any thought at all. But it definately has possibilities, it sounds like. Even being near Detroit Airport is a plus. Is there much snow up that way?

These responses are great. More food for thought. The more , the better.

VERY light on the snow when everyone else is getting lots including London. Sarnia that is. Also great beach, and very affordable. No real estate bubble. NO street people and really a very nice place. Dont tell anyone though or it will change. Really is a well kept secret. Come to see for yourself cause you may hear otherwise. I have kids at university in peterborough, London and Guelph and I can say without a bit of exaggerration that Sarnia is cleaner and would be a great place to get away from the rat race, very affordable and close to all amenities.

I will definately make a trip to Sarnia. It's sounding better all the time.
How about hospital and how about public transportation ( just in case I'm too old to drive someday)?
Are there any adult communities? or nice condos? or upscale townhouses?
I'll look forward to any more information.

Sarnia has 2 hospitals which amalagamated with a site in Petrolia to form Bluewater Health. They are currently finalizing tenders etc for a new hospital construction project. There is a really nice condo complex called Venetian Village right on the river (it is actually in Point Edward a separate village but really part of Sarnia)There is public transportation consisting of buses, but not as extensive as in a larger city. Real estate is very reasonable. Many people live on the St. Clair River in Corunna, Mooretown, Courtright. Others choose Lake Huron in Blackwell, Bright's Grove and Errol. The average house price is around 170 K. There are many beautiful parks including Canatara right on Lake Huron. There is a "big" mall where you will find Canada's largest Canadain Tire store lol! If you like to golf there are a lot of good courses. Port Huron Michigan is right across the Bluewater Bridge. Sarnia is about 1 hour to a Detroit Tiger, Red Wing or Lions game. Also 1 hour to London, 1 hour to Windsor, 2 hours to Toledo. Check it out http://www.city.sarnia.on.ca/
