Also, incredible scenic views, and open spaces, makes this a very sought after area in the GTA.
Niagara Escarpment & Oak Ridges Moraine…
The beauty of the Caledon topography comes from two dominant landforms. The Oak Ridges Moraine (the moraine covers an area of approximately 1,900 square kilometres (730 sq mi), and extends from Caledon to Rice Lake, close to Peterborough), and the Niagara Escarpment. The Niagara Escarpment is 1833 square kilometres (707 sq mi), and can be described as a long geological formation, known as an escarpment, or cuesta. The escarpment runs East/West, for the most part, and from New York State, through Ontario (Caledon), Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois.

Shopping & Groceries…
When you live in Caledon, Ontario you have you have to accept that you’re going to be driving more than if you’re living in Orangeville or Brampton. The trade-off for having a large lot with beautiful scenery and privacy is, that in order to do shopping, or get groceries you’re going to have to get in the car and do a bit of driving. Probably to one of the smaller grocery stores in Caledon (like the Foodland in Caledon East), or the bottom end of Orangeville. Another alternative is to drive to the North End of Brampton, depending on where you live in Caledon.
I would guess that every so often you’ll need to drive into a larger Centre, like Brampton and maybe maybe hit the Costco, to do a big shopping. Then you’ll get the heck out of Brampton, and go back to your beautiful home. That’ll serve for two purposes. The obvious one is that you’ve done your big shopping, and you’re stocked up. The second one, is that it’ll be a reminder that you made the right decision in moving to Caledon, to the tranquillity of your surroundings and your home. The trade-off is well worth it!
