Whittier is a city located in the southern end of the state of California, where it is one of the regional Gateway Cities of Los Angeles. . It has a population of 85,000 people.

A Pleasant, Commuter Town

Located around 25 minutes drive from Los Angeles and about 30 minutes to Anaheim means that to a certain extent Whittier is a commuter city, with many residents leaving daily for jobs in these far larger metropolitan centers.

Whittier itself has a busy commercial district boasting several major stores, and multiple smaller, independent ones and a thriving farmers market boasting the very best of local produce.

In addition to shopping the city maintains over 400 acres of green space, playgrounds and sports fields spread between 19 municipal parks. This means that Whittier is a pleasant, green community with plenty of outdoor space available to allow its residents to make the most of the incredible southern Californian weather.

The crime rate in the city is 37% lower than the national average, and a full 47% lower than the state average.

There are 50 public schools located in the city.

Home to a large Hispanic community, the best restaurants in town are often Mexican, so if you like this cuisine you will be pretty happy here! The city is also well supplied with sports bars and pubs.

Key Facts:

  • Median Age: 35.6
  • Median Household Income: $66, 457
  • Median Property Value: $437, 200
  • Cost of Living: 5.2 % below national average

Limited Private Employment

Of the top ten single employers in the city, only one is a private enterprise – Johnson Controls, who operate small manufacturing plant and regional office employing some 250 staff.

Various city wide medical facilities provide over 4,000 jobs, and the education board and the city itself provide a further 2,500 jobs approximately.
