The city of Rancho Cucamonga is tucked right next to Ontario and at the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Just 37 miles from Los Angeles, this suburban town is represented by the official city seal’s grape clusters—an homage to the agricultural history and deep roots in wine-making. Ranked as one of the top places to live by Money Magazine, and one of the top richest neighborhoods in southern California by Insider Magazine, it’s well worth a visit.
Major corporations call Rancho Cucamonga home, including Coca-Cola and Frito-Lay. Business travelers in town for meetings, conventions and tradeshows often choose Ontario Convention Center hotels for easy access to the thriving business districts. Whether you’re here for business or leisure, don’t miss out on all this city has to offer.
Wining and Dining
Although the first settlers were Native Americans, “Grapeland” was established in 1869. The hub is now the mid-point between Central Park and Victoria Groves Park. It featured a schoolhouse/church, and in 1886 the Sierra Vista reservoir was built. However, it was unused until 1956 and residents began to leave the area. The city didn’t make a comeback until the 1960s, and has thrived ever since thanks to a plethora of vineyards.
With award-winning schools, impressive libraries and gorgeous parks, Rancho Cucamonga is a beautiful little city with plenty to offer from shopping and dining to some of the best venues in the region.
