White Rock, BC
White Rock is a city in British Columbia Canada. It borders Semiahmoo Bay and is surrounded on three sides by South Surrey.
White Rock is named for a large white erratic glacial boulder that sits on White Rock Beach not far from White Rock Pier. It is kept white by regular applications of white paint supplied by the parks department.
Historically the area was dominated by The Straights Salish people who were known to have permanent encampments up 1791. The Semiahmoo First Nation has land and still borders White Rock to the southeast along Semiahmoo Bay. See the FV Lifestyle article A Pictorial History of White Rock, BC 
White Rock is also one of the sunniest places in Metro Vancouver because of the distance from the Coastal Mountains. Often as you drive south from Vancouver when it’s cloudy or raining you will eventually drive into clear sunny skies in White Rock. White Rock also has 8 kilometers of beach and is known for the 2.5-kilometer promenade and the famous pier. Along the promenade are trendy shops and restaurants.
