City of Fullerton, California
 
 
 
Population: 130,000 approx.


Incorporated in 1904, Fullerton is Orange County's fourth-oldest city, rich with reminders of its heritage and alive with arts and education. The city has blossomed from 430 acres of mustard fields to 22 square miles and about 130,000 residents. It has become a hub for transportation, with an Amtrak/Metrolink station, an Orange County Transportation Authority bus depot and the only remaining municipal airport in the county.

Fullerton is known as the The Education Community.  With five colleges and universities, including Cal State Fullerton, Fullerton College, a law school and two other private schools, it vies for the smartest city, a ranking that Irvine, home to University of California Irvine enjoys.

Fullerton rejected a bid by Walt Disney to build his theme park here -- the downtown has become a popular stop for people looking for a few quaint reminders of yesteryear. Much of the historic downtown has been preserved and is filled with antique and vintage shops and a variety of eateries.

What's developing in Fullerton's downtown area is a revitalized infrastructure of residential and shopping offerings.  Fullerton also enjoys a cutting edge reputation lately for its night clubs that feature some of the regions' great bands. 

There are at least 5 hotels in Fullerton that offer online, instant reservations.
