Rent Apartments and Houses in Okotoks Alberta
Okotoks is a wonderful bedroom community just south of Calgary for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Over the past decade or so, this growing culture has been expanding steadily as more families and seniors have put the big city in their rearview mirror in search of more quiet pastures. Since the city is just a 30-45 minute drive from downtown Calgary, for those who don't mind the commute, it's an enticing choice.
In the early 1900s, what was once a blue-collar town based on the nearby sawmill has now become a fabulous and friendly area for families with young children. As well as a few private schools, a French school, and a Montessori school, the town boasts many outstanding public schools. The houses for rent in Okotoks typically cost about $2,000 / month, but with plenty of outdoor space, that will give you a good-sized 2- to 5-bedroom house or townhouse. Thanks to its location on the north side of town, the views of Crystal Shores Bay, and its stellar reputation as a nice place to live, the top neighborhood for families and commuters will be Crystal Ridge.
