Fullerton vacation rentals

Culture and sun in neighborly Fullerton

Fullerton is based in the sun-kissed Orange County of California, not far from the beaches of the Pacific shoreline, and a stone’s throw from thriving Downtown LA. Fullerton is a mid-size city with a small-town charm – it boasts a friendly neighborhood vibe, an array of captivating cultural activities, and a thriving music scene. Fullerton vacation rentals are available to match every traveling style — restrained Kerouac to full-on Zsa Zsa — and range from cozy California bungalows to enormous luxury houses with outdoor pools.

Casting a line in Fullerton’s parks

Fullerton prides itself on its rejuvenating and well-maintained green spaces, and lovers of the outdoors will find a fine selection of public parks in which to walk, jog, and cycle. Ralph B. Clarke Regional Park, one of the largest, offers tennis courts, hilly hiking trails, and fishing ponds stocked with enormous catfish. Fullerton also has several top-end golf courses, with sweeping palm-studded grounds. And when you need to cool off from the California sun, take a dip in your Fullerton vacation rental pool, or visit the large outdoor racing facility at the Janet Evans swim complex.

Rock and roll history in downtown Fullerton

Culture vultures and guitar shredders can visit the Fullerton Museum, where a dedicated gallery tells of the life and work of Leo Fender – a Fullerton local – who invented the mass-market electric guitar in the 1950s, changing pop and rock music forever. The museum also displays public local art and artefacts from the city’s early years. History buffs can see the Muckenthaler Cultural Center, a 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival estate with grand citrus grove gardens. Nearby, see the Fullerton Arboretum and Botanical Garden, a sprawling Eden with over 4000 types of native and exotic flowers and trees.

Sunny skies and summery highs

Like much of Southern California, Fullerton boasts a warm-summer Mediterranean-type climate, with a remarkably high number of sunny days per year and no real risk of extended rainy periods. The summer months run from May through October, with the peak months of August, July and September welcoming temperatures in the 80s – if you’re traveling during this time, book one of the many Fullerton vacation rentals that come with outdoor swimming pools. The spring and fall seasons are quiet in Fullerton and pleasantly warm – in the short winter months, bear in mind that it will get chillier at night.

Wildlife and city energy in and around Fullerton

Fullerton is around 30 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles – about a 40-minute drive – and 25 miles from the nearest top beach spot, Huntington Beach. The city’s gridded layout is dotted with lush pools of public green space and resplendent golf clubs. Slightly west of downtown Fullerton, you’ll find Coyote Hills Regional Park, a low-lying mountain range and natural space rich with wildlife, and crisscrossed by equestrian trails. Northeast of downtown Fullerton lies the gargantuan Chino Hills State Park, with its rare wildflowers, bounding deer, and yapping coyotes.
