Historic buildings, charming neighborhood parks, streets lined with old growth trees, and the old fashioned Craftsman and Spanish Colonial Revival homes make up Whittier. And, L.A. and Orange County are both nearby and accessible.
Transportation. Whittier is a fine place for the carless nomad. Several bus routes operate within the city, provided by Foothill Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Norwalk Transit, the Metro, and The Sunshine Shuttle. For you drivers out there, most of Whittier doesn't experience heavy traffic. The most congested areas will be along the San Gabriel Freeway and the Santa Ana Freeway.

North Whittier. The north end is an eyeful, with the stunning beauty of high elevation wilderness, the creativity of high elevation golf courses, and the great views looking down on rolling hills that lead into the San Gabriel river to the west, and into the twinkling city lights to the south. Shopping and entertainment are nearby.
East Whittier. East Whittier has lots of eats, coffee shops, pizza places, and great little shops. There are also plenty of neighborhood parks.
Friendly Hills. There is plenty to do around here, with a few dance studios: Dance Place, Sparks Dance Studio, and Alohi's Polynesian Dance. There is a bowling alley, a few parks, and plenty of dining options.
South Whittier. A neighborhood of numerous bars, and excellent food. It is always worth it for the hole-in-the-wall eats, the dive bars, and the diamond-in-the-rough night life that you can't find anywhere else. There are several sports bars. There is live music. There are dance parties. It's all within walking distance.
