Scarborough White Cliffs
This suburb of Toronto borders Lake Ontario, and it was named after the English city of Scarborough in North Yorkshire. Colonel John Simcoe's wife, walking with her husband in the newly founded city of York, which later became Toronto, decided that the rocks of the lake's coastline reminded her of the English landscape in her native town of Scarborough. This is how the future suburb of Toronto in Canada got its name, and the White Cliffs of Scarborough have now become a favorite walking place for both locals and tourists. Natural attractions have earned rocky Scarborough the title of the greenest area in the metropolis..
