Whittier is an eastern suburb of Los Angeles that offers a small-town feel, well-regarded schools and miles of scenic hiking trails. What it lacks in freeway access it certainly makes up for in local charm. In recent years, the city has experienced an uptick in development, delivering new construction homes from the $400,000s.
