Ontario is wedged between Rancho Cucamonga, Pomona, Chino, and Riverside, and like those cities, was once a farm town. Today, they combine to form the Inland Empire monolith that could be described as LosAngeleSuburbilandia. The citrus and olive orchards that once covered Ontario can still be seen in the old, productive trees in the yards of homes ... Read more
and businesses, but the city's main economy today is manufacturing and warehousing. Ontario is home to a moderately sized airport, which makes it easy to get to and from. Once you're there, your best bet for transportation is a car. If you're looking for things to do, visit the small but thoughtful – and free! - history and art museum.

Summer brings crowds to Los Angeles, booking up hotels along the coast and restaurants in the city. From September to May the area is less crowded, and the air less smoggy, though you may encounter the hot, dry ... Read more
Santa Ana winds. Headed to the beach? Don't go in June when the 'June Gloom' makes the beaches cold and foggy for most of the morning. The coast is always a bit cooler than inland (head to Santa Monica and not Hollywood if you want a breeze). Whatever time of year you go, however, you can leave your down coat at home.

City of Ontario is a big sizable city. This Ontario often confuse with Ontario, Canada. Funny since CA can be mistake as Canada too for short phase.

This Ontario is known for three things

1) Ontario Airport - One of major domestic Airport in Socal. After LAX Ontario are next to next with burbank.

2) Warehouse and Big Rigs - Ontario is known for massive warehouse which translate lots of big rigs... I never see so many big rigs except near the Port of L.A.

3) Ontario Mill - This probably only thing keep the local keep coming here beside going on business trip or working here. The outlet is pretty big and is indoor.

Despite the large size, not too many people live here. Most prefer the surround city.

I have been to Ontario a few times and passed it many more on the way to/from Vegas or San Bernadino. It is located right off the 15 freeway and southwest of San Bernadino, or west of the Inland Empire. There is a HUGE shopping mall, Ontario Mills that has outlets and is very nice. Good restaurants and really great deals! There are many hotels in the area and easy access to the freeways.

Truck stop was pretty cool. You could get your truck painted with special graphics.
