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...

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!
I moved to Fullerton almost immediately after graduating high school in order to start attending Fullerton College. The town itself has wonderful and fascinating history and such amazing shops, restaurants, and free events in downtown. Families are able to gather every last Friday of the month outside the Fender museum for live events and a farmers market. We do have a slight homeless issue that I think to needs to be taken care of by having some type of shelter and soup kitchen for the homeless who often stay in downtown during the day. At night, downtown Fullerton transforms into a busy nightlife, bar patrons and late night dancers travel through the streets of downtown to have fun on the weekends. Beautiful sights and comfortable atmosphere that resides in Fullerton though does has many apartments and homes to be quite pricey, but often you can find and nice and affordable place to rent in a lovely area, such as where my home is located in Fullerton.
