This community is close to both the airport and many local hangouts. It also encompasses one of the city’s most active and vibrant community associations.

Winner: Thorncliffe

If you travel often — for work or for pleasure — easy access to the airport can be a key deciding factor when choosing a place to live. But you also need more than that for the time spent at home. From its centre, the community of Thorncliffe is around 10 minutes by car (barring traffic conditions) from YYC, and encompasses one of the city’s most active and vibrant community associations. It also has the up-and-coming Greenview Industrial BIA, home to cool hangouts like Citizen Brewing Company, Congress Coffee and several art studio/gallery operations; and access to the trail system at Nose Hill Park on its northwestern tip.
