    Whittier, the gateway city to La La Land

    Named after the poet, John Greenleaf Whittier, Whittier is 18 miles south of Los Angeles, and the perfect gateway city to La La Land. Once a historic Quaker colony, the city is surrounded by the Puente Hills and has sweeping views over the Los Angeles Basin. Unlike its glitzy neighbor, the city has a wealth of natural attractions, as well as a great food scene, influenced by Mexico. Book Whittier vacation rentals for easy access to the city's nature trails, as well Uptown's rash of fancy stores on Greenleaf Avenue.

    Whittier is all about hikes, bikes and historical homes

    Boasting forests of sycamore trees, rugged canyons, and sweeping views of the L.A. Basin, Whittier prides itself on being an outdoorsy kinda place. Tucked away in the Puente Hills, there are dozens of trails for biking, hiking and horseback riding. Book a Whittier vacation rental and you could be neighbors with some of the city's esteemed Colonial abodes. Whittier is one of the few towns in Southern California which features an abundance of historical architectural styles, from Victorian to Spanish Revival.

    Whittier's rustic rancher's retreat

    During the Mexican-American war, Whittier was owned by rancher, Pio de Jesus Pico, the last governor of Alta California. Book a Whittier vacation rental and you'll be a short walk from his former home in Pio Pico State Historic Park. Set in a 5-acre park, El Ranchito, Pico's 19th-century former home, has been restored to its 1880s glory. After exploring the old adobe, stay and picnic in its historical gardens, once part of the 9,000-acre ranch. It's open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and you can join a pre-arranged guided tour.

    Whittier's 500 days of summer

    Southern California is renowned for its dry climate and is blessed with long, balmy summers, and mild, often wet, winters. And like much of the state, Whittier doesn't do badly in the sunshine stakes. Boasting more than 278 days of sunshine a year, it's a popular destination during spring, summer, and early fall, with highs of 70°F to 80°F. Summer is the busiest time of year to visit, so it's advisable to book your Whittier vacation rental well in advance.

    Nature is prettier in Whittier

    Despite Whittier's close proximity to downtown L.A., the city is surrounded by vast rolling hills and lush forests. Part of the expansive Transverse Ranges, the western Puente Hills, known as the Whittier Hills, is home to an abundance of native Californian flora. Head out to the Hellman Park Trailhead, a series of self-guided hiking trails around the reservoir and canyon, and witness the rare berry manzanita, western sycamore, and Californian aster, as well as distant views of L.A.
