Guelph is a vibrant university city approximately 1 hour from the heart of Toronto. There are many locally sourced restaurants, a thriving night life and it offers GO transit to the GTA.

Guelph is a beautiful city, however real estate prices over the last ten years or so have become exorbitant. This is due to its proximity to Toronto. Because real estate prices in Toronto have ballooned in the last two decades many people have moved to the Guelph area to take advantage of the lower prices, and then they will commute to Toronto for work.

Guelph is a small but vibrant city very close to Toronto. I love the closeness of hiking trails the most. As it is a university city, it offers many options for going out like restaurants, pubs, and clubs. Lack of traffic is important especially if one moved from Toronto as I did. life here is peaceful but full of attractions for everyone.

Guelph is a cozy and quaint city. It is on the small side and would not be considered bustling by any means, but its friendly community will make you want to stay. If you like nature, this is the place you want to be. Guelph has two rivers that run through most of the downtown core, and there are many trails along the riverside. the Guelph Arboretum offers a large swath of nature for you to enjoy. The food scene in Guelph is also one of the best. Although it is a smaller city, you’ll find many diverse cuisines here.

Guelph is a small but beautiful city in a rural landscape. The city has everything for living a good family life. There is a small university, a technical college, three high schools, a hospital, a veterinary clinic, three good parks and four libraries. A small river flows through the middle of the city creating a scenic view. The city downtown is a beautiful place to meet and greet.
