Rancho Cucamonga is a beautiful, ever-growing city. It is especially family friendly, with many parks and award-winning schools scattered throughout the community. It is a very diverse city with many different cultures and families coming together constantly, from the city centers, diverse restaurants, and schools encouraging diversity. With its size and amount of businesses, especially with Victoria Gardens, an outdoor mall, jobs are always needed and offered. RC is in a very convenient spot, as it’s built on top of multiple freeways and between major cities in either direction. Overall, Rancho is a beautiful city and welcomes everyone from all walks of life. There’s something for everyone in Rancho Cucamonga!

I have been living in Rancho Cucamonga for about 6 years now and I love it! I am very familiar with the city due to its numerous ways to be involved such as recreational softball, volunteering opportunities, and its Youth Leaders Program. The most popular shopping center, Victoria Gardens, is a perfect place to meet up with friends, take your kids, or just chill out. The public schools here are known for its diversity, academics, and sports. They’re great schools to open your kid’s up to new cultures and to new challenges. I love living here and I know a lot of people do as well!
Rancho Cucamonga is a great place to live and is centrally located for easy access to many Southern California cities including Los Angeles, San Diego and Palms Springs. We are also close to world class beaches and a number of mountain resorts for hiking, skiing and water activities available throughout the year!

There are many great amenities in our city for all ages and whether you enjoy sports, shopping, hiking, dining out there really is something for everyone!

Our schools are first class and win many awards both within San Bernardino County and California!
