Located within Southern California’s Inland Empire, Ontario offers unparalleled beauty and recreation, history and culture, arts and entertainment, shopping, and—of course—extreme sports and adventures. Made up by San Bernardino and Riverside Counties with more than 27,000 square miles and located at the apex of three major freeways, the region provides easy access to other popular Southern California attractions. Less than an hour from Ontario Airport are Big Bear mountain resorts, freshwater fishing lakes, Pacific beaches, world-class golfing, Disneyland and Hollywood. It is also easy to visit Las Vegas and other California locations including Palm Springs, San Diego and Joshua Tree National Park. Home to several sports teams including hockey, baseball, soccer and basketball, the 2.4 million people living in this community have plenty of reasons to cheer. The venues are excellent and the weather permits outdoor activities year-round. Only in the Inland Empire can you ski a 7,000-ft. mountain overlooking a crystal-blue lake, go wine tasting at local vineyards, try your luck at casino games, cruise historic Route 66 and surf the Pacific Ocean all in one day. With a Mediterranean climate resulting in more than 330 sunny days per year, one can see and enjoy rolling hills, forested mountains, broad deserts, open valleys and cosmopolitan cities.
