What Renters Like and Dislike About Fullerton

The diversity and how you may see multiple cultures throughout the whole neighborhood. Small mini malls and communities that serve big roles into your life.

Everything is close-by including transportation. My favorite local business is McDonalds. I like going to the movies with family and friends.

I like that everything is close, my favorite business is target, boba shops, and loving places as they have a good time as way to love it

There are many places to play near our home, such as the park, like to go with the children, and the playground, go with the family

Like to go to some of the restaurants and bars with friends and family. Sometimes hang out at their homes and feel mostly safe parking there.

There is a park near my home. I like running and exercising in the park with my family best Walking is also a good option
