Ontario Basics


Just 35 miles east of Los Angeles, in the center of the largest county in the country and a gateway to all that the San Bernandino Valley has to offer, Ontario combines big city amenities with small-town, historical charm. Part entertainment hot spot with a world-class arena and part outdoor oasis with over 400 acres of public parks to enjoy during the 300 days of sunshine, Ontario stretches 50 square miles along the majestic San Bernardino Mountains, which provides a scenic backdrop from anywhere.

Evidence of Ontario’s century-old beginnings can be found throughout the city, from the Historic Downtown Euclid Avenue District complete with an old-fashioned mule car to the Ontario Museum of History and Art, two family wineries, the historic Granada Theatre and the oldest business in the area, the world famous Graber Olive House. While the city holds onto its historical roots, it also lives up to its nickname—Southern California’s Next Urban Center. The biggest names in entertainment and sports regularly stop in at the Citizens Business Bank Arena, while the Ontario Mills Mall attracts shopping enthusiasts from all over the country with more than 200 stores. New projects are always in the works, including the Piemonte at Ontario Center, a vibrant pedestrian-oriented project combining luxury dining, retail and residential space in the heart of the city, and a new Ontario Town Square complete with a community park and new restaurants.

While the Southern California gem boasts great entertainment, outdoor activities, shopping and fine dining, it’s also centrally located for easy access to beaches, mountains and major attractions. Just hop on one of three major freeways and you can be in Los Angeles, Disneyland or Universal Studios in less than an hour.
