Dan Plowman here from Dan Plowman Team Realty
and I want to answer the question for you
what is Oshawa known for.
Most tourist never venture far from the Greater
Toronto Metropolitan Area.
This is rather sad when you consider that
a mere 60 kilometers from downtown Toronto
lies one of Ontario Canada’s best-kept secrets;
Oshawa.
Located on the Shore of Lake Ontario, Oshawa
has a history going back to the fur traders
or voyagers of the 1700s who established an
independent trading post there.
Today it is considered the anchor point of
both The Golden Horseshoe and Greater Toronto.
For all its history Oshawa has remained a
city on the cutting edge.
When the automotive industry took off in the
mid-1870s it became the car capital of Canada
and home to McLaughlin Carriage Company, now
known as General Motors Canada which is still
headquartered in the city.
When growth in this sector slowed it moved
on to brighter pastures and is now a hub for
health sciences and education as well as being
home to a Regional Innovation Centre and IT
sector.
In fact, Oshawa is considered one of the top
five cities in Canada in which to seek employment
across several sectors.
While economics and education are always driving
forces in any community, Oshawa offers much
more than just job and educational opportunities.
It is a well rounded and vibrant city with
something to offer everyone; single, married,
young or old.
Oshawa is home to over 70 restaurants and
that number is growing at an astounding rate.
From Southern BBQ to Vegetarian Indian.
Cuisine of all sorts, the city has something
to offer every taste.
There are fine dining establishments and Food
Trucks to be visited.
Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican and fusion
restaurants of all types are popping up on
every street and the city is alive with young
imaginative chefs vying to make a name for
themselves and helping put Oshawa on the culinary
map as a must visit location.
Just as Oshawa is alive with outdoor activities.
There are several parks spread around the
city that are great for a quick run, getting
the kids outsides or enjoying a quiet lunch.
And, it mustn’t be forgotten that the nearby
McLaughlin Bay Wildlife Reserve has over seven
kilometres of cycling and walking trails that
are open to the public year-round.
It has three entry points, two car parks and
several information booths and picnic areas
to be enjoyed.
Not surprisingly, there is the Canadian Automotive
Museum where you will find an ecliptic collection
of automobiles dating back to 1902.
The nearby Ontario Regiment Museum that features
the largest collection of armoured vehicles
in Canada is a must see.
For art lovers, the Robert McLaughlin Gallery
offers over 4500 works of modern art to be
browsed and of course, there is The Parkwood
Estate former home to the founder of General
Motors Canada and the setting for movies like
X-Men, Chicago, Billy Madison, and It.
To state it simply the nightlife offering
in Oshawa are too numerous to even try to
describe.
You want to go where everyone knows your name
there are bars just like that, that will take
you back to that feeling that Cheers once
showed and felt.
You love 70’s Disco; this is the place to
be, its here.
Lighted dance floor, Oshawa has it all.
Country is your bag, maybe you love country
music.
Great place for country music as well; pick
an era, pick a setting.
You won’t go wrong, Oshawa’s a great spot.
I think you get the idea.
If you want it, Oshawa has it.
