I am a single female in my early 30's who lived in Fullerton, CA for 4 years. Fullerton is apart of, Orange County. Fullerton has a lot to offer for those who are in college or a student, but may become dull and boring for those who are single and past the college age. After finishing college (in a degree that I wasn't going to make any money in), I decided to go for a Bachelor's degree in Illustration at California State Fullerton. As previously noted, Fullerton is more like a college town, so there are a ton of places to rent that are inexpensive; most of these apartments are located near low-income families and other students, but the area is generally safe. My first apartment was $1400 (nowhere near a campus). Fullerton is very expensive in areas that are not close to the major universities. The only reason I was able to afford this apartment in the first place was because of me landing an online gig as a graphic designer for a t-shirt company. When I wasn't hacking away on my computer for hours, I often met up with a few friends of mine at my favorite Italian restaurant, "Angelo's and Vinci's Restorante". When I wasn't eating or working, I was shopping. There are few malls in Fullerton, but there is a host of shopping outlets. The most popular one is the OC Outlet; where you can get real designer clothes at dirt cheap prices. Nightlife in Fullerton is great, even for those who are not under 30 years old. "The Twisted Vine" and the "Continental Room" are favorites of people who live in Fullerton. These two party places are for the mature crowd who like to eat and enjoy a beer or wine without being in a club setting.
