Rancho Cucamonga is a large and populous city in San Bernardino County. It is surrounded by the cities of Fontana, Ontario
, and Upland in the east, south, and west; it also borders the San Gabriel Mountains to the north—specifically Mount San Antonio (also known as Mount Baldy), the range's tallest peak. Residents of Rancho Cucamonga enjoy easy access to open, green spaces like the vast Angeles National Forest to the north, as well as pleasing views of the mountains.
As its population of 165,000 + would indicate, Rancho Cucamonga is primarily a residential suburb; it is, however, a fairly significant hub for trucking and logistics. The 10, 15, and 210 freeways all converge in Rancho Cucamonga, which certainly boosts this industry. The city is sprawling and car-dependent, and like most areas within the Inland Empire
, it rewards you for living close to where you work. Commuting to Pasadena, Los Angeles, or Orange County on any kind of a regulation, while not strictly impossible, is strongly inadvisable.
