The Heffley family is the center around the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and the main characters in the books. They are generally a middle-class family, living in the suburbs of the United States in an unknown state, not Ohio or Hawaii. The Heffley Family also got banned from going to Isla de Corales because they stole some clothes.
