To get the best of the big city with more of a rural, small-town feel, an Oakville rental might be perfect. There are several properties available in all of the various neighborhoods of Oakville. The town built itself up from a small port into the modern suburban town that it is today. Originally settled just before the beginning of the 19th century, the town started near the Oakville Harbor which is located in what today is called Old Oakville. It was a town that was heavily engaged in the timber and shipbuilding industries during the early years of development. A foundry became the focal point for many years up until its closing the 1850s. Several towns popped up around Oakville as more people moved into the area.
The town has some great old neighborhoods including Old Oakville and Bronte, where the town’s second harbor is located. Many of the older buildings in the area have been converted into retail establishments, restaurants, and apartments. If you like life in a small city, you may want to investigate an Oakville rental in one of these neighborhoods. Bronte, Palermo, and Sheridan, now neighborhoods of Oakville, were once their own separate towns. In 1962, Oakville merged with these smaller towns and by the early 1970s had formed into what it is today.
