Fullerton is a populous city in the northern Orange County
region of Southern California. It borders Placentia in the east, Brea and La Hambra in the north, Buena Park in the west, and Anaheim
in the south. Fullerton is probably best known as the home of California State University, Fullerton, the largest campus in the public California State University system, at least by enrollment standards. The school's 38,000-plus students and their comings and goings lend the city of Fullerton a bustling, college-town feel.
Fullerton is also known for its music scene: it is the historic birthplace of Fender, a greatly influential musical instrument company, and it remains a hotbed for hardcore punk and alternative music. Housing in the area is diverse. Fullerton has experienced tumultuous fluctuations in its real estate and property valuations over the past few decades, mostly owing to the many and varied housing developments that have broken ground there; one can just as easily find an upscale single-family home as a modestly priced apartment. Primary arteries: the 57, 91, and 5 freeways, as well as Euclid Street.
