Whittier, California is a wonderful little family community southeast of Los Angeles. In addition to good schools and relatively low crime rates1, your family will have a wide array of entertainment options. Teenagers and older children will tear up the track at Speedzone, an outdoor go kart racetrack, featuring video arcades and other family attractions. Who knows, maybe mom and dad can take a spin around the track, too, and give the kids a run for their money. If you’re looking for something to do on a short schedule, consider a quickie picnic at Central Park. Pack sandwiches and enjoy the scenery, including a gazebo and a fish pond. And while you’re there, let the kids run around on the playground equipment for a while. Struggling through financial hardship is a trying mental vexation, as it robs the comforting security out of marriage; however it can show you how to take hold of your shaken relationship. With the help of a couples therapist, learn to govern your fiscal infrastructure as to minimize its chance of jeopardizing your most cherished communion.   On those hot California summer days, you can beat the heat by suiting up and heading out to the Whittier Palm Park Pool. Kids of all ages will love it, and so will you. And if you have gamers in the family, you’ll do flips over Nickel Nickel, where all of the arcade games only cost five cents. And the kids can even have fun once the nickels run out with a variety of free games. Introduce your kids to the area’s rich history at the Whittier Museum. And when everyone just needs a day away, escape reality for a little while at Whittier Village Cinemas, where the prices are reasonable and the movies are current. Even if you never take the drive to LA or one of the area’s spectacular beaches, you’re going to have an outstanding time residing in Whittier.
