Ontario, CA is a fantastic base for exploring Southern California. In Ontario, keen shoppers will head to the Ontario Mills Mall, one of the largest on the west coast, while foodies won't want to miss a tour of the Graber Olive House.
The Museum of History and Art has many hidden treasures and a regular program of workshops and events. If you have kids, you'll love the 12 acre Scandia amusement park, complete with rides, mini golf and batting cages.
Much of Ontario's attraction is its proximity to major attractions outside the city. Within 45 minutes, you could be at Disneyland, Legoland, Knott's Berry Farm or the San Diego Zoo. Mountain resorts such as Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear are also close by, so Ontario is a good choice for outdoor and sports enthusiasts.
Flights into Ontario International Airport (ONT) land just 35 miles from Los Angeles and a few moments from downtown Ontario. Transportation from the airport to the city is a breeze, with frequent shuttle buses and public transportation, or you could take a taxi for around $16.
