Few communities have the small-town charm that Whittier boasts, although it’s just a short drive to busy Los Angeles in your Whittier rental car! Named for famed poet John Greenleaf Whittier, this idyllic southern California community is home to Whittier College, alma mater of President Richard Nixon, and each historic district of this quiet community has been lovingly preserved in the memories of generations past. The crown jewel of Whittier is the uniquely captivating Greenway Trail, a five mile recreational and commuter bikeway and pedestrian path bookmarked by five unique “stations”, each designed to highlight a different facet of Whittier’s history and development. Discover Whittier’s rich heritage, from citrus growing to diverse architectural history, all in the unspoiled beauty of nature. Load the family up in your Whittier car rental and enjoy all the quaint attractions this bedroom community has to offer!
