Summer in Fullerton, California, is a fun time. We’re near Disneyland, Los Angeles, and the beach, and our city itself has some great, unique activities. From fishing to shopping to exploring to seeing outdoor shows, here are some of our favorite summer activities in Fullerton:


Fishing and Duck-Watching at Laguna Lake Park

Fishing is a quintessential summer activity, so head over to Laguna Lake to give it a try! Catch and release panfish or even catfish, enjoy a walk around the lake, and then break for lunch on one of the picnic benches. As you’re fishing or walking, you can enjoy the beautiful, colorful ducks that hang out on the water.


Shopping at the Fullerton Market

One of our very favorite summer activities in Fullerton is visiting the Fullerton Farmers Market. You’ve got produce, craft creations, prepackaged goodies, and hot food from amazing local vendors. The market is open on Thursdays from 4 to 7 p.m. and will run through October. Head over to the downtown plaza on 125 E. Wilshire Avenue to check it out!


Exploring Downtown Fullerton

There’s something exciting about just walking around downtown, and Fullerton has lots to see and do. You can try amazing restaurants like Crepes Bonaparte and Crawfish Cave; experience history firsthand at the Fullerton Train Museum and the Chapman Building; or just relax outside Rialto Cafe and people-watch as you sip on a cold brew.
