“Dear Town, for whom the flowers are born, Stars shine, and happy songbirds sing, What can my evening five to thy morn, My Winter to Thy Spring? A life not void of pure intent, With small desert of praise or blame; The Love I felt, the Good I meant, I leave Thee with My Name.” – John Greenleaf Whittier
Named for the poet John Greenleaf Whittier, “Ye Friendly Towne of Whittier”, was founded by a group of Quakers from the East Coast who wanted to establish a new community in California. Before the Quakers purchased the 1,259 acres that would become the location of Whittier, California, the land was part of a 300,000-acre Spanish land grant awarded to Manuel Nieto by the King of Spain for his military service.
Today, the City of Whittier is a thriving member of the Gateway Cities, with a well-preserved small town feel. The Uptown Whittier district is home to an array of businesses that capture everything from vintage flair to modern cuisine. Some of the best things to do in Whittier include hiking Hellman’s Park, meditate at the Hsi Lai Temple, enjoy time with friends at Annies, the Rusty Monk, 100 North Kitchen and Lounge, The Commoner, The 6740, The Bottle Room, Spin Lounge, Slam Dunk, The Mission Square, Sage Lounge, Cask and Hammer, Level One, or Bambooze.
