"When I was posted in Trenton, I wanted to make sure my family was close to the base, had great re-sell value, and also had community. It's hard enough moving across the country and starting fresh. We chose Bayside so the kids could go to the french immersion school. Plus, it's close to the water and has a ton of outdoor spaces. We love it."
