Let’s Go Hiking in Fullerton

In Southern California, hiking season starts early. We don’t have to wait for the weather to clear up because the weather is typically great (except for the rain every once in awhile). So if you are planning on getting back out on the trails, Juanita Cooke & Trail on Euclid & Valencia in Fullerton is the perfect place to go for experts to first time trail walkers.

Just remember to dress accordingly and come with the correct gear. If you are planning to follow a deep trail, bring boots, pants, berries or another snack, and a trekking pole to help reduce the strain on your knees. Even though walking a trail can seem like a “walk in the park” the activity can be strenuous and should be treated like an athletic activity. Have fun walking the trails and we’ll see you out there soon!

Taste the Undead at Zombie Donuts

Our goal with this blog is to find the most awesome hidden gems in the city of Fullerton. We know you live busy lives and might not look up all the cool things taking place near your apartment, so our job is to find them for you. This week we found an amazing little donut shop that’s been turning heads over the last year or so. Zombie Donuts on Chapman Ave has turned into the trendy donut shop for people looking for a little flair with their sweet treats.

The owners (a mom and daughter team) are huge fans of the AMC hit show “The Walking Dead” and decided to incorporate their love of the undead into their donut making skills. The shop has all the traditional treats you’d find at a donut shop but with an added design twist–everything is horror related. So the next time you need something tasty and scary, stop by this awesome shop and have a zombie donut–they are to die for! You can check out Zombie Donut’s website and social media pages at the link provided.
