Located 12 miles southeast of Los Angeles, Whittier is considered one of the Gateway Cities. Sheltered by a string of parks and recreational areas to the north, this California community enjoys a sense of peace and privacy from the rest of the valley, not to mention a rich local history. Book a stay at one of the hotels in Whittier and explore this beautiful region for yourself.
When you get off your flight at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), you'll be 28 miles away from your destination. Hire a taxi or count on public transit to get you where you need to go. A combination of the Metro Green Line and the city bus system will have you in Whittier in no time. Reserve one of the Whittier rental cars to help yourself get around once you arrive, and turn your wheels towards the Jonathan Bailey House, a site listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Dating from 1887, this was the home of the first settler in Whittier, and now operates as a museum. Learn more about the local history at the nearby Whittier Museum. Pio Pico State Historical Park is another interesting stop for history buffs. This park features the residence of the last governor in power while Alta California was under Mexican rule.
