Nestled between the foothills of Whittier, Uptown is worth an afternoon visit. The area is one of Los Angeles County's oldest. What began as a Quaker town in the 1800s is now a charming shopping and dining neighborhood filled with eclectic stores and restaurants.

From a famous cigar shop and lounge to a used bookstore with thousands of aged titles, Uptown Whittier provides visitors with a unique taste of old and new. The quaint store fronts mixed with contemporary restaurants serving a variety of multicultural dishes, every visitor will find something to discover.

Walking down the narrow streets lined with stately trees, one can only wonder the irony of this former Quaker town now welcoming modernity in its retail and dining experiences.
