Things for renting

Living in Fullerton, CA

Fullerton is an accommodating city for many things including education, work, entertainment, and food. And thanks to the centralized location, you can easily manage to get almost anywhere from here via bus or train. And for air travel, the LAX airport is just over 30 miles away, which is typically around 45 minutes when traveling by car.

However, one of the downsides for residents can be the heavy traffic at certain times. For example, the average one-way commute is approx. 30 minutes, which is longer than the U.S. average. This is probably partly because nearly 78% of people commute via Drove Alone and only 3% use mass transit.

Furthermore, since Fullerton has a healthy sized population of well over 100,000 people, there is always a lot of activity in the area. Which is why we have a Neighborhood Watch Program here that is operated by Fullerton residents with the support of the police department.
