Fullerton, CA

Fullerton is a nice sized city with a ton of stuff nearby. Quiet neighborhoods, lots of shops and parks. I have lived in Fullerton for the past 5 years and I have never been robbed, bothered nor annoyed. People keep to themselves and for a city of this size, there are a lot of community activities. There are farmers markets, community classes and tons of different churches, a YMCA, a YWCA, a library, tons of groups, the Masons, Elks, and others. It's about as clean as any city in Southern California could expect to be. Disneyland is 15 minutes south, Los Angeles is 45 minutes North (with no traffic) and you also have Knotts Berry Farm nearby and multiple malls and beaches. It's a good city if you like urban/suburban living and are willing to pay a higher cost of living for it. If you like smaller towns and really friendly people, any city in Southern California is not for you. Fullerton is an extremely Republican city in a Democrat State. (i.e. California). Summers can be miserably hot, especially August, and there is no real change of seasons. So if you want to wear shorts almost year round, you'd love it here. : )

Fullerton, CA - 9/27/2009

Fullerton is a very nice place to live. Of course, it is located in beautiful Southern California. The weather is great year-round. Although Fullerton is located in a metropolis, Los Angeles/Orange County, if you are involved with in the community with kids activities and such, it doesn't seem like such a large place. Fullerton is BIG on education, with Cal State University-Fullerton, Western State University of Law, Southern California School of Optometry, Fullerton College, and Pacific University. Additionally, Troy High School has a world reknown tech program. Many of the public schools are magnet schools specializing in gifted programs, pre-med, technology, drama/the arts, etc. Additionally, many of the elementary schools are "blue ribbon" schools. Fullerton also has two museums: Fullerton Museum and Muchanthaler Cultural Center. There are all kinds of drama, arts, musical concerts, etc. that you can go to in our fair city. If you are an outdoor person, unbelievable as it may seem, even in this large city, you can find plenty of things to do. Cycling (as in bicyling) is popular here, with the many bike paths, both for street biking and mountain biking. Check out the Fullerton Loop, a gorgeous place to bike to get away from the city (although the Loop is all within the city, it just doesn't feel like it). Also, if you're into long distant biking, there's the river bed (dry river) path to the ocean. If you're into fishing, you can fish at Laguna Lake (on the Fullerton Loop) with the kids. How can anyone talk about Orange County without mentioning, the Anaheim Angels (NOT Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), the Mighty Ducks, Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, and all the other beautiful beaches along the Orange County coastline. If you like parks, there are plenty in Orange County, and some beautiful parks in Fullerton. Check out Craig Park, my favorite. Orange County tends to be a conservative county, so don't think "Hollywood" when you come here. Yes, there are rich people, but there are lots of regular people who are down-to-earth, hard-working people who believe you need to earn your keep. After writing about my fair city, I'm starting to wonder . . . why do I want to move?

I have lived here all my life and it's great, but - 5/18/2007

I have a Master's degree and so does my husband. We both work and are still not able to afford a house here. Unfortunately we are looking to relocate. It is estimated that you must earn $214K a year to afford the median priced home here. If that is not a factor for you, Fullerton is great! Five colleges, seven theater companies, great culture. We don't like how Fullerton has become so over populated in the last 10 years, and we are burnt out of people who are moving in making the city more like Korea-town.

housing price - 9/8/2006

I would not complain about housing prices here. I live in the bay area and from where I'm standing, houses here look like a bargain.

Downtown Fullerton is Great - 8/16/2006

Downtown Fullerton offers a beautiful place for daytime shopping, or a varied and ecltic night life. Try Roman Cucina for excellent Italian food, eye candy waiters (mostly male), dark ambiance and some of the best martinis in Orange County. Kettle and Keg is a great low-key place for hookah and dancing. Rockin Taco is always packed with Orange County's hottest people for lively dueling pianos. The city of Fullerton offers a "Taste of Fullerton" night once or twice a year wear they close a five-block strip of Harbor down and businesses open for an evening meet-and-greet. Fullerton is the only Orange County city I know of that feels more like a small town than a big city. It seems almost out of place compared to the surrounding area, but it's a good place to get lost in.

A $500,000 fixer upper - 8/16/2006

The cost of living in Orange County is really terrible, and it's getting worse as the populations in every city is growing. There are very few vacant lots left to develop (and many of those that currently are have future plans already made), so the demand is spurning an incredible increase in price. In 2004, My husband and I bought a three-bedroom 1950s "fixer upper" in Fullerton (1,258 sq ft) for $480,000.. One 350 sq ft room addition later, the home was recently appraised for $680,000. I find it amazing this rate of appreciation, but also frightening to think of where housing will be 5, 10, 20 years from now. I also am frightened to look at my $2,780 mortgage payment every month. If either my husband or I lose our jobs, we lose our home- more than 50% of our income goes into paying for house (versus the recommended 30% ). This is the situation of most people in Orange County- although most don't admit it.

Weathers great in SoCal, but who can afford to buy - 7/29/2006

That's the problem. Or if you aquire a property, you're under the gun every day to make some earthshaking mortgage payment.

Great place to live - 4/9/2006

I have lived in Fullerton for the past 3 years and I find it to be a great place with a nice climate. Even the winters aren't really all that bad. Most of the days are sunny here. Fullerton is a rather large city and the neighborhoods can range from extremely nice in the north end to somewhat run-down on the southern end, which are literally separated by railroad tracks. Still, it is possible to find nice houses on the "wrong side" of the tracks. The cost of housing here has gone out of control lately and has become unaffordable to most people. The downtown area is a lively, fun place with many nice restaurants and clubs for the single man/woman. It is the home of Cal State Fullerton College, so there are many college aged residents, which keeps the city hip.
