Parks and pretty views in Rancho Cucamonga

Clustering low beneath the peaks of the San Gabriel Mountains on the northern fringes of Los Angeles, Rancho Cucamonga – or just Rancho as it's known to its loyal locals – is a green and palm-spotted place to base your stay on the West Coast. Drawing wine tasters and walkers, film buffs, and folk eager to taste a more off-beat corner of the big city, it's also got oodles of characterful Rancho Cucamonga vacation rentals. They range from rustic cottages between the pines of Mount San Antonio to stylish modern condos with pools and sprawling gardens.

Things to do

Wineries and walking tracks in Rancho Cucamonga

There are wineries of all shapes and sizes peppering the dusty flatlands and rising valleys of the San Gabriel Mountains north out of central Rancho Cucamonga, showcasing everything from dry California whites to fortified port tipples. After that, you could mosey down to the Victoria Gardens shopping and culture center, where film screens and boutique fashion stores all mingle under the palm trees. Of course, hiking and biking tracks are never too far from the door of your Rancho Cucamonga vacation rentals either – check out the Pacific Electric Trail and the North Etiwanda Preserve for some of the best.

Activities

Film showings in the hills of Rancho Cucamonga

The whole summertime in Rancho Cucamonga is given over to public events in the local parks – and there are oodles of local parks. Eager to watch an open-air Hollywood flick under the gaze of the great San Gabriel Mountains? No problem. Want to jog along backcountry paths that run all the way out to the forested peaks of San Bernardino? Easy. Fancy a bout of local Bakersfield sound in intimate music venues? Sure. Meanwhile, those renting Rancho Cucamonga vacation rentals in the mountains can enjoy canoeing, hiking, and ziplining right on the doorstep.

Weather

Sunny days for wine drinking in Rancho Cucamonga

Rancho Cucamonga is very much a summer destination. Despite getting the same year-round warmth and hot weather as the whole Los Angeles area, it's a city that comes out of its shell between June and July. That's when you'll be able to join the locals in open-air cinema showings in the parks, and when you'll find local bands taking to the streets with their gritty guitar sounds. It's also the best time to hit the trails and canyons of the San Gabriel Mountains.

Natural features

Breakaway from the city in Rancho Cucamonga

Rancho Cucamonga is like a stepping stone between the urban sprawl of Los Angeles and the wild, chaparral-topped mountains that encase the metropolis on all sides. It's just a short jaunt from Main Street to the trailheads leading to the top of Mount San Antonio, while the Mount Baldy Ski Lifts are even closer, offering pine-studded valleys, marked walking routes, and heart-thumping ziplines to boot. Keep delving into the peaks for something altogether more feral, coming in the form of the Angeles National Forest – the land of bighorn sheep and bobcats.
