“I’ll take Famous Hollywood Actors for $1000 please Alex”
Question: Keanu Reeves and Kiefer Sutherland both spent part of their childhood years here?
Answer: What is The Beach area of Toronto?
Correctamundo! Both Mr. Reeves and Mr. Sutherland grew up in The Beach neighborhood and look where they are today!
Maybe it was this older area of the city and not the hustling bustling metropolis of downtown that inspired them to indulge their creative sides. Maybe the laid back environs of the tree-lined streets and mature ambiance helped impart a certain longing for stardom in their psyche…..who knows!
What we do know is that the Beach is a great part of the city to raise a family in. It’s close enough to the city that you’re not left wanting for anything, and it’s far enough out of it that you can take a step back from the hustle and bustle.
Kimberley Court [map] looks like it could be the perfect spot for all of the happy couples out there looking to start a family. It ticks all the boxes and the words ‘hidden gem’ spring to mind. And for those mornings when it was your turn to be up all night with your bundle of joy, we hear that Grinders, the coffee shop around the corner will give you a great pick-me-up.
But what’s with the Jeopardy reference I hear you ask?! Well didn’t Mr. Trebek only go to high school in the heart of the Beach!
