Living in Fullerton

The smallish Californian city of Fullerton, home to some 135,000 people, sits in the heart of the Orange County and was historically known for producing Valencia oranges. The city's motto is 'The Education Community', a reference to the impressive five universities and numerous schools there, and sure enough Fullerton's largest employer is the California State University. There is plenty to see besides, with cultural attractions including the Fullerton Arboretum and Myron's Moped Museum, as well as one of the most charming downtown areas of any Californian city. Expatriates living in Fullerton will find themselves at the heart of a vibrant music scene with plenty of local bands performing regular live shows – although the genre in vogue is punk, which is perhaps something of an acquired taste. Expats living in Fullerton can also enjoy the city's various local amenities, notably Hiltscher Park, a large public library and of course the strong intellectual environment centered around the city's impressive array of universities.

Moving to Fullerton

Despite being a pleasantly small city with a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere and plenty of green space, Fullerton is well served by local transport infrastructure. It even has an airport, although expatriates moving to Fullerton will need their own private planes to use it. More practically, the city is served by both Metrolink and Amtrak trains, and expats moving to Fullerton can fly into Los Angeles and make the half hour train journey to the city's train station, Fullerton Transport Center. Expats moving to Fullerton can get additional information on general expatriation topics in the Expat Magazine, our online collection of articles on topics ranging from moving abroad with your family to international money transfer. You'll find this on the InterNations website, along with a collection of articles written by other InterNations members. These are often a great way to get an insider's look at various expatriation experiences, as well as to pick up useful hint and travel tips.

Working in Fullerton

Expatriates working in Fullerton will be at the center of a high value economy with great health services and a very lively after hours scene. A major employer in the city is the education sector – between them, Fullerton's main universities and schools employ well over 7,000 people. Several theaters, the city's own Hunger Artists Theatre Company, the local Muckenthaler Cultural Center and various other institutions and groups are giving the small city a big name for the arts. And for every expatriate in Fullerton who enjoys the outdoors, the city has a warm Mediterranean climate, great urban parkland and the West Coyote Hills. Expats working in Fullerton can get in touch with other global minds and expatriates through the InterNations website using our discussion groups and private communications. This is a popular and convenient way to meet the local international community and organize meet-ups, or simply to get the latest tips and information on things to do and see in this vibrant Californian city.
