Fullerton is a great town to live for a young professional, depending on what your interests are. There are always great restaurants, shops, and bakeries to hit. The roads are relatively safe with less traffic than Los Angeles (where I used to commute). There is always road work going on, so that can be frustrating at times, but that just means that roads are constantly being updated! I loved easy access to Costco and Sprouts, my two favorite grocery shopping stores. It would have been nice to also have a Trader Joe's nearby, but I'm not complaining. There are also a lot of Asian supermarkets and stores (like Daiso) to go to as well. Great place to live!

The only complaint I have was that there were some safety issues in the neighborhood I lived in. My car got broken into once, but nothing was taken, thankfully. Also, during the 4th of July, there were a lot of illegal fireworks! That made it difficult to sleep that night...
Review Fullerton
I love Fullerton! Have been living here while attending college! There is so much to do and so much going on! I love the restaurants and the downtown area. If there is one thing i could change, there are certain areas with construction that have been under construction for what seems like years now. It causes traffic and congestion. Other than that, I love Fullerton!
One thing i like about Fullerton is that there is always something new and exciting happening. In the heart of Fullerton known as Downtown Fullerton, is always in a constant move. During the day we has tons shops and restaurants open and welcoming others to come on in. At night we have great places for people to socialize and grab a bite to eat. I sometimes feel like Fullerton never sleeps. I do not think i would change anything about Fullerton because it is great the way it is!
