Rancho Cucamonga, with its delightful weather and abundant opportunities for both indoor and outdoor activities, is a great place to spend time with friends and make new memories. Whether you are a true outdoorsman or a cultural connoisseur, you can find plenty to do in this world-class community.

Hiking in Rancho Cucamonga is a great way to get outside. Whether you want rugged exercise or a picturesque scene, there is something for everyone, including trails for pedestrians, cyclists and even horse riders. Just north of Rancho Cucamonga is the North Etiwanda Preserve, where hikers are treated to waterfalls, expansive views and plenty of trailhead parking. The Pacific Electric Trail is a multi-purpose trail that follows the long-gone Red Car route, a streetcar line that once connected the region to Los Angeles but is now is a convenient place to jog, hike or ride. The city of Rancho Cucamonga has many local trails in a variety of difficulty levels that allow visitors to view the region’s spectacular vistas and varied wildlife.

San Bernardino County is a historically important area of Southern California, and historic landmarks in Rancho Cucamonga are plentiful. The Maloof Foundation Historic Residence and Garden is a beautiful choice for anyone who appreciates historic sites, gorgeous flowers and local culture. The house has been moved from its original location but is still intact – and within it, you can see the furniture that made Sam Maloof an iconic designer and woodworker. If you want to know more about the history of Rancho Cucamonga, visit the John Rains House. The home, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, dates to the mid-19th century and is one of the original ranchos that gave the city its name.

If you want to have some classic summer fun, catch a Rancho Cucamonga Quakes game – the region’s own minor league baseball team – at LoanMart Field. The Class A Advanced team is part of the California League and acts as a farm team to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Grab a hot dog, put on your baseball hat, and get ready to let loose and cheer. If you prefer to explore art in Rancho Cucamonga, head over to the Hourglass Art and Wine Gallery to view local art, sip some wine or listen to live jazz.  You can also visit Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art at Chaffey College, a teaching museum that displays modern art and contributes to Rancho Cucamonga’s cultural community.
