Sprawling Craig Park in Fullerton is just beautiful. It is full of humongous shade trees and numerous walking/jogging trails. There are playgrounds for the kiddoes and a beautiful duck pond. There is even a small concrete ravine for skateboarding. It is so quiet and peaceful you forget how close you are to busy roads and freeways.
This place stocks THE most extensive art supplies in all of Orange County - this is your one stop shop for everything you need for artists and students. Forget overpriced shops like Aaron Brothers. I shopped here throughout my college days as an art student. Prices are great and I've noticed that employees are usually art students themselves so they are very knowledgeable with everything in the store. They also do custom framing and carry a nice selection of art books (they buy/trade for your art books also). This shop is conveniently located by the 405 freeway for access to anyone in Orange/LA county. The best!
This small museum is hidden in the Fullerton Downtown area. The tickets are inexpensive. This museum host a variety of interesting exhibits. The rotating exhibits last a few months, then the new exhibit arrives. Everything from historical Fullerton exhibits, to the traveling Fender exhibit.
The museum staff is mostly volunteers, so they are friendly and helpful. The museum has a small gift shop, where most items are inexpensive.
Outside the museum,look for the interactive fountain, thats the favorite of kids.
Identity has a really wide selection of goods. A healthy-sized girl clothing section sets it apart from other board shops. They have a really huge selection of shoes. And a lot of good shoes, not just a lot of ugly Nikes.
The staff here are really nice, not pushy. And not pretentious skaters who are too cool to help.
The also have a fair selection of sale items, so you can really find some incredible deals on actually nice stuff.
If you come here at the wrong time from the wrong direction (the 91), you can get stuck in Knott's traffic. Try to weave around or come from the opposite direction.
Do you like to play war games? Are you athletic and like to use your strategic skills? If so you need to play paint ball and you need to check out Paint ball 4 Less. Check out there selection of guns, ammo and everything else. If your going to play the game you need the right tools and you can find them all here. Remember that safety is important so I would recommend buying a neck guard and helmet as your top priorities.
Don't cinch on the ammo as you want a good brand. You can find all price points but if your playing in the hot sun you want to invest in ones that won't get stuck in your gun.
Check out Paint ball 4 Less if you want some great deals.
This is a small place that is filled with everything relating to tennis. Because it is a small place it is easy to miss. The shop is in a small building in the middle of the plaza that it's at. They have tennis rackets and tennis balls, tennis strings for your rackets. There are so many rackets to choose from, you can ask the people there for which kind of racket would suit you best. The rackets and other items here are fairly priced. If you have any questions related to tennis, they'll be able to answer it for you.
Fun and entertaining the first time you go. Very busy on weekends. I wouldn't even attempt it late in the afternoon and evening. Rather expensive for bowling but you pay for the atmosphere. Located at the Block of Orange with several restaurants nearby. Staff is friendly and helpful with questions. Not somewhere I'd want to go all the time.
Ice Palace is a small ice skating ring. They offer from private and public skate time. For $7 dollars, you can skate until your tire. They open at a certain time to the public so check out their schedule before you leave the house. Their have a huge parking lots and there are plenty of restaurant around to pick from if your hungry.
Westminster Lanes is a nice place for family fun. The place is not in perfect condition, with scratched bowling balls and gum under the seats, but if you're looking for something to do on a Friday night, this is the place to go. They have a bowling special called "Rock-n-Bowl" from 9pm - 2am where you can bowl while listening to awesome rock music both current and oldschool. In addition, there are hourly prize giveaways, such as CDs and boomboxes. The average week's prices are a bargain, but Rock-n-Bowl is a bit more expensive. The place is always crowded at night, so be sure to reserve your lane at least an hour before.
Holiday Roller Rink has been in Orange forever. When I was a child our elementary school used to have family night there. Funny thing is , now i'm grown and have my own family and they still have family night for the schools at holiday. they have of course remodled several times throughout the years. It's a very fun family atmosphere. Lots of parking outside and really good prices for skate time and skate rental. They have an awesome snack bar inside as well. Fun times !
