After twenty years of steady revitalization, Downtown Fullerton is experiencing a "renaissance" evidenced by a growing number of sidewalk cafes, specialty restaurants, unique shops, entertainment venues, and upscale apartments.
Downtown Fullerton offers a rustic old town atmosphere with a cluster of more than 70 historic buildings, beautiful shade trees, and decorative walkways, providing a comfortable setting to gather with friends, enjoy music, and catch up on the latest news. Downtown is equipped with more than 2,500 "free" public parking spaces to support the over 350,000 square feet of retail and more than 275,000 square feet of office space.
Downtown is more than just another shopping center - it also serves as a vibrant cultural center with facilities, such as the award-winning Museum Center, the Downtown Plaza, and Plummer Auditorium. It is also home to financial, religious, and governmental institutions, as well as a bustling regional transportation center that serves more than 350,000 passengers every year.
