Rancho Cucamonga provides and strives to keep the city safe, clean and continuous growth with housing and businesses including shopping outlets. I have been in this city and neighboring cities for over 10 years and I hope to someday be able to buy myself a home to continue to live here another 10 years and more where my family can enjoy this community and all that it offers.

In recent years walking has become a hobby of mine because it helps me to unwind, release stress but most importantly keeps my body and mind fit. Rancho Cucamonga has great parks and trails where you can walk or ride your bike my yourself or family and friends. The trails are a great way to meet others that live in this community. But most of all they are a safe way to stay active and enjoy the outdoors. I appreciate how the community maintains and takes pride in providing these trails and beautiful parks to enjoy.

I really have enjoyed living here in Rancho Cucamonga!

Rancho Cucamonga is truly beautiful. It is well-maintained and there is lots of growth in places to live, work, and play. The City has lots of great program offerings for the residents, great parks, impressive community center facilities, great libraries, performing arts theater, and the schools are well-ranked. The picturesque mountain backdrop provides the natural beauty, and honestly, that is all that keeps it from being "the five-star city" for me, because it is a chiefly commercial location. Still, it is much safer than LA, not a big Party-town, though there are plenty of sports bars in the outdoor mall Victoria Gardens and around town if you wish to partake!
Lived here for twenty-three years. Love it! Both of our children were raised here and attended local schools: Cayote Canyon Elementary School, Ruth Musser Middle School and Rancho Cucamonga High School. We attend church at Abundant Living Family Church which is also located in Rancho Cucamonga. It's a lovely city to start and raise a family. Victoria Gardens and Ontario Mills are two malls that are located within miles of Rancho. The 10 Fwy, 15 Fwy and the 210 Fwy run through Rancho. There's a venue in Victoria Gardens where concerts are held. Michael McDonald will be performing there on November 18th.
