Around 40% of the market is exclusively rental. Whittier's vacancy rate of 4% is lower than the national average by a significant amount, so you may have to look hard for the right property.

One of the most popular destinations in Whittier is Lost Weekend. It's located in the southern part of town, with $20 All You Can Drink specials and great music all night long. The Lounge Ultra Bar also is a good place for dancing. It has Disco Retro nights every Saturday.
  • WeatherThe climate here is remarkably stable and relatively mild. The average high is in the 80s and the lows are no lower than the 40s. This is California, after all, and it is beautiful almost every day. Rainfall is scarce for the entire region, so Whittier does have a tendency to dry out. In the summer, enjoy the many shopping outlets or take a very short drive the the most beautiful beaches around.
  • Local RestaurantsOne of the bonuses for living in such a diverse area is the abundance of world flavors right at your doorstep. Whittier has samples of every major culture in the world represented within a ten mile radius. For Mediterranean food, Phlight near Central Park is a popular choice for both its ambience and tapas menu. If Mexican is more to your liking, Arturo's on Leffingwell is your best bet.
