Located between Markham and Oshawa (and about 30 minutes from Toronto – as long as the traffic is light), Whitby is a perfect place for young families to live, due to the numerous child-friendly events and parks, as well as a variety of schools for all ages. But it's also a commuting area – people here typically work in Toronto, due to the town's GO Station and its location on 401 and 407. The city's southern portion, around the harbor, is very urban. Shopping, shops, a charming downtown district and many parks can be found here, as well as cultural facilities such as the Courthouse Theater, museum and library.
