Things to Know About Life in Fullerton
Commute. Public transportation is very convenient. Buses run all over the city, and the train station in downtown serves two commuter rails: Amtrak and the Metrolink. A quick train ride can get you to downtown LA in just 30 minutes!
Art, Theater, and Rock n' Roll. The culture of Fullerton is full of creative activity. The Muckenthaler Cultural Center and the Fullerton Museum Center all contribute to the art and theater scene. There is also an established music scene, based on a history of Rock n' Roll. Popular bands such as Social Distortion and The Offspring got their start in this growing music center, which continues to entertain and evolve in Fullerton today.
Nearby Nirvana. Every once in a while, a withered soul needs to escape the normal routine. For some, that nirvana is found on a warm and sunny beach, which is just a 20 to 30 minute drive away. For others, it is snowboarding down powdery mountains, or biking through the crisp, cool air of higher elevations, just about an hour away. And, for those who find nirvana in the glitz and glamour of Hollywood or downtown LA, these hot spots are just about an hour away as well.
City Center. There are plenty of art galleries and museums, live music, coffee shops, pubs and clubs, and the train station... all connected by wide bike lanes and walkable streets. It's the perfect location.
Artisan Hills. Simple, charming, and convenient, this neighborhood is near the Brea Mall, and Craig Regional Park.
East University. Close to the train station, the 91 and 57 Freeways, as well as all of the eateries and nightlife of downtown.
North East. Tree-lined streets and adorable homes make this neighborhood very easy on the eyes. It is surrounded by the Coyote Hills Golf Course and Gilman Regional Park, so there is plenty of open green space to enjoy. Plus, the Brea Mall and the Brea Golf course are practically next door.
Sunny Hills. Here comes the neighborhood! Sunny Hills has always been a coveted location, with nearby shopping, proximity to downtown, and the expansive Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve.
West Coyote Hills. In between the Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve and Ralph B. Clark Regional Park, this suburban enclave is a comfortable place to call home with lots of opportunity for outdoor fun. Ralph B. Clark features a large amphitheater, baseball fields, volleyball courts, miles of hiking and biking trails, fire rings and barbecue pits, horseshoe pits, fishing, playgrounds, and a small museum featuring ice age fossils and local geology exhibits... all for free! While there are few rentals within the neighborhood, you can always find an apartment right along the border.
