If traveling south from Los Angeles by train, stop here in Fullerton at the charming, historic Santa Fe Train stop. Part of the Fullerton Transportation Center, the stop features the national Amtrak trains as well as the local Metrolink trains.
The look of the Santa Fe Depot is very much "southwest "or Spanish, giving authenticity to the name. For convenience, the Santa Fe Express Cafe will satisfy your stomach with a more than decent grill cafe and a variety of snacks (including a good number of healthy options) Within the cafe, you can relax with newspapers and yes, at times, musical performances (on Fri and Sat).
Within walking distance are some of Fullerton's finest restaurants and shops.
The transportation center. It is located at at 120 East Santa Fe Avenue.
Many convenient taxis are parked here for immediate getaway.
Various OCTA buses stop here, including OCTA 43 which goes in the immediate Disneyland area
Part 3 of the tryptich series of Gothic saints. This one is me. A little harsh because it was the first. These all have gold paint around the forms and in the halos. The photos kind of suck. This one is called 'Our Lady of Sharp Objects' because I love scissors and I'll paint them in eventually.
If you happen to be in Orange county to visit Disneyland in Anaheim, it would be a good idea to visit the theme parks during the day and then later in the evening to head to Fullerton for entertainment via Harbor Blvd. One simple road from fun to fun. Just head north on Harbor Blvd. from Disneyland. The ride, depending on traffic should be about 10 min by car. If by bus, take the frequent OCTA 43 or 543 BRAVO North bus (N. County Courthouse) from Disneyland and exit Chapman Blvd. in downtown Fullerton.
