Southern California's Home for Action Sports
The past, present, and future collide in the Greater Ontario area - where history meets art and art becomes entertainment
The region played an integral part in Southern California’s citrus and agricultural heritage, and much of that is on display in various museums and locales such as the Museum of History and Art, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga and the Graber Olive House. Iconic car culture is celebrated through the California Route 66 Museum, while the Mission Inn is an icon in its own right — a massive sprawling ode to the region’s glory days.
Livelier entertainment options abound in the form of bowling, roller and ice skating, and movies, while concerts, hockey, baseball, and auto racing make for more adrenaline pumping moments. Citizens Business Bank Arena always has a full calendar with concerts headlined by superstars such as Carrie Underwood, Neil Diamond, and other notables. The Los Angeles Lakers play at the arena every October, and tours featuring Disney on Ice, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and EnduroCross make yearly stops there as well. Performing arts, musical theater, symphonies and amusement parks round out the entertainment options in this region.
Want a little entertainment with your dinner? Check out Center Stage Theater in Fontana and Candlelight Pavilion in Claremont. Need some laughter to top off your day? Stop in at the Improv at Ontario Mills, where comedy reigns with top entertainers including Ralphie May, Jeff Garcia, and dozens more.
Hoping for a touch of history with your amusements? Head over to the Ramona Bowl in Hemet for a glimpse into early California with the pageantry of the outdoor play, Ramona. If the cool comfort of a movie theater is more your liking, you’ll find the mother lode in this region, with more than 70 screens, plus an IMAX Theater, located only minutes apart.
Whatever defines your idea of entertainment, you’ll find it in the Greater Ontario area.
