The city of Ontario is located in southwestern San Bernardino County, 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. Located in the western part of the Inland Empire region, it is part of the Greater Los Angeles Area. The city is home to the Ontario International Airport, so exhibitors and attendees coming from all over the country will have easy access to flights.

To the south, you’ll find Norco horse country and the beautiful vineyards of the Temecula Valley, offering hot air balloon rides. Check out Prado Regional Park and the Santa Ana River Trail, or swing by the famous Mission Inn and nearby Fox Theatre. To the north, the high desert communities of Victorville and Apple Valley offer historic glimpses into the past with the San Bernardino County Fair and the California Route 66 Museum.

Heading east, visitors can take in NASCAR at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana. They can also stop by the Kimberly Crest Mansion and Gardens in Redlands, and marvel at the beauty of the desert in the Palm Springs-Coachella Valley area. Similarly, the massive rock formations and monuments of Joshua Tree National Park are not to be missed. Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm and Universal Studios are also easily accessible by car. It’s only a quick trip to many of the famous Orange and Los Angeles county beaches.

The Greater Ontario area offers world-class dining and first-rate entertainment to suit all kinds of tastes. From Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar and the historic Sycamore Inn to the tropical atmosphere at Rainforest Café, you’ll find a variety of dining options for people of all ages.

Livelier entertainment options can be found in the form of bowling, roller and ice skating, and movies, while concerts, hockey, baseball, and auto racing. The Los Angeles Lakers play at the Citizens Business Bank Arena every October, and tours featuring Disney on Ice, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, and EnduroCross make yearly stops there as well.

Finally, for those who just want to sit back and laugh after an informative day at PFTech, check out the Improv Comedy Club, featuring renowned entertainers and up and comers. Whatever defines your idea of entertainment, you’ll find it in the Greater Ontario area!
