Located at the halfway point between the two largest cities of the GTA (Hamilton and Toronto). It is surrounded by Burlington to the west, Mississauga to the east, Milton to the north and Lake Ontario along the south.
The City of Oakville was a planned community, from its beginnings as a busy logging port in the late 1800's. Most of the city's primary street grid uses a horizontal and parralel roadway network.
Trafalgar Road is the primary north-south corridor and services the City Center.
Midway through the city, the Queen Elizabeth Way cuts through on an almost direct east and west line.
The city is home to a number of major international corportations, most notably the Ford Plant, visible from the QEW near Winston Churchill Drive. This is the reason for the city having a higher median income of most of its surrounding cities.
