Why Ontario?

Housing & Neighborhoods

Rich in Culture, Lifestyle, and Entertainment Options

Ontario, California is more than a place to live. We’ve cultivated a community that we’re proud to call our home.

As initially designed, Euclid Avenue is a wide, double boulevard with a center parkway and tree-shaded streets. Even today, street after tree-lined street includes historic Craftsman Bungalow, Period Revival, Victorian, Mission, and Ranch style homes. Ontario's location advantages have led to a powerful surge in employment, payroll, and retail sales. Thus, Ontario is building a "Complete Community" with urban lifestyle districts that create sustainable places to live, work, and play.
