If you're looking to make a move from Toronto, small communities in Ontario that are trending for seniors include Ballantrae, a bungalow-rich community in Whitchurch-Stouffville, Ont., targeted to retirees who enjoy a good old-fashioned golf and country club but want to stay close to the city.
Bradford also pops up on the radar screen, as it's got plenty of amenities, includes a pleasingly mixed demographic and even hosts a not-to-be-missed annual carrot festival.
Wellington in Prince Edward County is a picturesque getaway that bills itself as a farming and beach community (Sandbanks Provincial Park is in the County). But it also has a thriving seniors community and, perhaps in a related matter, a growing wine industry with vintages that are getting worldwide recognition.
