Discover Ontario & Rancho Cucamonga, California

The heart of Southern California: Stay here. Go anywhere.

By choosing the Greater Ontario as your home base for meetings, conventions, and vacations, you can see more and stress less.

To the south, Norco horse country and the lush green vineyards of the Temecula Valley beckon, offering rides — atop horses and in hot air balloons — and leisurely afternoons of wine tasting. Check out Prado Regional Park and the Santa Ana River Trail, or swing by the historic Mission Inn and nearby Fox Theatre, where presidents and Hollywood stars once mingled.

To the north, the high desert communities of Victorville and Apple Valley offer a glimpse into simpler times with the San Bernardino County Fair and the California Route 66 Museum, among other treasures.

Heading east, visitors will thrill at the sight of NASCAR at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. They will be enchanted by the Kimberly Crest Mansion and Gardens in Redlands, and awestruck at the striking beauty of the desert in the Palm Springs-Coachella Valley area. Similarly, the massive rock formations and monuments of Joshua Tree National Park are not to be missed.

Northeast from the Greater Ontario area, travelers will find the natural majesty of the region’s mountain resorts, which offer boating, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, camping, and a variety of other opportunities on or near Big Bear Lake, Lake Arrowhead, Lake Gregory, Snow Valley, Silverwood Lake, and more.

Westbound visitors will be amazed at the number of leisurely opportunities within a short drive. Need a theme park? Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm and Universal Studios are all easily accessible.

Hoping to kick back and relax? It’s only a quick trip to many of the famous Orange and Los Angeles county beaches.

Star gazing on the itinerary? Hollywood, Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, and the Griffith Park Observatory are reachable within an hour from the Greater Ontario area. So are the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, the Queen Mary and Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, the Santa Monica Pier, USC and UCLA campuses, and dozens of museums. Both the Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon presidential libraries also are within an easy commute to and from the Greater Ontario area.
