If you like taking your burgers up a notch, culinarily speaking, you'll enjoy this place. Great flavors, creative combinations. Vegetarians will love the portobello mushroom burger. Beer served, they'll even let you sample a few.

If you love tea, definitely go to Tranquil Tea Lounge. They have dozens of different teas to try. Our favorite is "Chapman Chai," iced, with a little sweetener. Also love their poke!

Almost simultaneously last year, Fullerton's downtown became home to a half dozen poke restaurants. Go figure. Poke Co is our favorite. Their a/c tends to be pretty strong, though, so we often get it to go.

Our 18-year-old son LOVES this place. He would recommend the fatty pork ramen with crunch onion and garlic as well as the sesame chicken appetizer. (Full disclosure, Ken and Shannon do not like the ramen but do enjoy the sesame chicken.)

Our two teenagers LOVE this place, and the value is amazing. If you order two banh mi sandwiches, you get the third sandwich for free. All boba is buy one get one free. Our son recommends the sauteed beef or bbq pork banh mi sandwiches.

Our family loves Pho Ellie. We've been coming here for years and almost always get the same thing -- the Ellie combo, which is a bowl of pho and a chicken sandwich. We like the veggie pho with chicken broth. The "extra small" is actually quite substantial. Pho Ellie is a quiet, modest, family owned restaurant, good for take out or dining in, and the owners, Vincent and Tricia, are super sweet.

Our favorite pizza place! The Fullerton Pieology is the original location. If you're not familiar with Pieology, it's a create-your-own-personal-size-pizza kind of place with as many toppings as you like, all for the same price.

Like most places, Fullerton has a lot of Starbucks! Your closest Starbucks is here at Harbor and Chapman at the north end of the downtown, an easy ten minute walk from the apartment. This location is a favorite study hangout for Fullerton Union High School and Fullerton College students.

One of our very favorite restaurants! The za'atar pie (freshly baked flat bread generously covered with thyme, sesame, and olive oil) is awesome. Love their lentil soup too! The shish tawook plate of grilled chicken, almond rice, hummus and salad is absolutely delicious and easily feeds two people.

Entertainment & Activities
No visit to Southern California is complete without a visit to the "Happiest Place on Earth." If you have little ones, it is absolutely precious to see their wonder and excitement when they meet their favorite Disney characters. Our daughter met Cinderella at the Princess Brunch when she was four years old, and it was magical. Older kids (and adults) love the rides, shows, and parades. The nightly fireworks show is spectacular -- as well as visible from many parts of OC. Our favorite rides are Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland and the Cars Ride and Soarin' Around the World at California Adventure. To save time and avoid parking fees, we recommend Uber.

Downtown Disney is the "free" part of the Disneyland Resort. Not just for tourists, locals come here all the time. Just about a block or two long, Downtown Disney's architecture and decorations are wonderfully fun and inventive with all the attention to detail that Disney is famous for. Great for walking around, live outdoor entertainment, people watching, shopping, or seeing a movie. Restaurants tend to be pricy.

The Fullerton Train Station is an easy 15 minute walk from the apartment. Especially convenient for getting to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles or if you are headed south to San Diego. Serves both Amtrak and Metrolink.

By far the cheapest gas in town. If you have a Ralphs loyalty card (aka Kroger), you can save even more, up to a dollar a gallon.

Parks & Nature
Fullerton has miles of trails. The Hiltscher Park Trail is very close to the apartment, yet feels quite remote from the city. To reach the trail, just head up Richman and turn right on Valley View. In a couple blocks, you'll see the trail on your left hand side.

Hillcrest Park, established about 100 years ago, is Fullerton's oldest park. If you have kids, you may want to visit the new "Tot Lot." (Be sure you go to the playground off of Lemon Street, NOT the old one off of E. Valley View.) There's a big grassy hill right next to the playground, and kids of all ages love to run up and down that hill.

Laguna Lake is a peaceful little manmade lake filled with ducks and fish. If you like to hike, you can take the Hiltscher Park Trail, which starts just a few blocks away from the apartment, all the way to Laguna Lake. Approximately 2 miles. A very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

A small picturesque cove, Corona Del Mar is one of our favorite beaches. Very much a family beach, it's fun to watch the kids play near the tall rocks on your left and also the sailboats leaving the marina on your right.

Arts & Culture
The Fullerton Museum is a great little museum. If you are a musician or love rock music, you may be interested to know that Leo Fender, the inventor of the Fender guitar, was from Fullerton. In addition to the interesting traveling exhibits hosted by the Fullerton Museum, there's always something about Fender. Directly across the street is a terrific little playground. Very modern, colorful style. The off-kilter merry-go-round, which we fondly call the "wheel of doom," fascinates kids of all ages.

Amazing customer service, especially considering the price point! Very nicely organized with lots of interesting choices, this Dollar Tree is definitely the best in north OC. Great for picking up some cheap candy or other fun little thing that you didn't know you wanted.
