Fort Erie Lakeshore is reasonably good for those who prefer a quiet atmosphere, as noise from streets and other parts of the city is rarely an issue - although there are still several noisier areas, especially around Queen Elizabeth Way.
Driving is usually the best transportation option in Fort Erie Lakeshore. Parking is easy, and nearby highways, such as Queen Elizabeth Way, are reasonably easy to reach from any location in this part of the town. However, the public transit network in Fort Erie Lakeshore is quite bad. Nonetheless, there are a few bus lines crossing the neighbourhood, and most houses are near a bus stop. Travelling on foot is not very feasible for property owners in Fort Erie Lakeshore as many daily needs are difficult to carry out without the use of a vehicle.
Around 70% of the population of this neighbourhood own their home while the remainder are renters. The substantial percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of this neighbourhood is an important part of its character. Around one quarter of properties in this area were constructed pre-1960, while the majority of the remaining buildings were built in the 1960s and the 1980s. This part of Fort Erie is primarily composed of two bedroom and three bedroom homes.
There are no high schools and no primary schools in Fort Erie Lakeshore. Likewise, there are only a very small number of daycares and thus they can be a very long walk away. In terms of food, a fraction of house buyers in this area may be able to purchase their groceries on foot, while others will have to turn to another means of transportation. A small variety of restaurants and coffee shops is available as well.
