North York: Where Toronto Meets Markham and Vaughan

Living at the confluence of Toronto, Markham and Vaughan, North York offers easy access to the comprehensive amenities provided by all three cities. Whatever your lifestyle needs are, everything you could possibly want is just a quick walk, bike ride, subway trip or drive away. 

North York is also perfect for anyone who enjoys great food and vast culinary selections from around the globe. This is because North York has some of the best restaurants anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area. Whether you want the best sushi Japan has to offer, the tastiest perogies from Eastern Europe, or the finest souvlaki from the nation of Greece, you’ll find a place for your tastebuds to rest in North York’s restaurant garden of plenty.

Highways 404 and 407 are mere moments from almost any intersection, and the area is also home to several public transit options. The Yonge Street Corridor and Finch Subway station are just to the west as well, offering even more commuting options. In fact, North York is known far and wide for its ample commuting and public transit options. The Yonge and Sheppard subway station grants you access to all four directions. If there’s anywhere you need to go, anywhere you want to explore, North York is your nexus point to your next great adventure. You can, quite literally, access all of the GTA and beyond. North York is truly the epicentre of the real Toronto and the starting point for all of your future excitement.

Five major streets to the west will bring you to Highway 400, and from there, it’s a fast trip north to fabulous Vaughan Mills Mall, one of Canada’s largest shopping centres. Excellent nearby shopping venues closer to home include The Promenade Mall, Centrepoint Mall, The Bayview Mall and the prestigious Bayview Village Shopping Centre featuring more than 100 one-of-a-kind and luxury retailers.

Also along the 400, you’ll find, as an endless source of fun and fantasy, Canada’s Wonderland!

During the winter months, Highway 400 will also provide you with an easy route to the more northern reaches of Ontario where you’ll find some impressive recreation facilities. The most noteworthy of these is sure to be Mount St. Louis Moonstone and Blue Mountain Ski Resort and Lodge in Collingwood. These winter destinations provide exquisite ski and snowboard opportunities to all those who love to ride their snow-laden slopes, and a delectable plethora of dining options and spas await those who are less inclined to tackle the slopes than their boarding counterparts.

Furthermore, living in North York also provides you with the chance to discover gorgeous green spaces such as Bestview Park, Conacher Park, Bayview Glen Park, Garnier Park, Lillian Park - all of which are great opportunities to relax and recreate in the great outdoors.
