Introduction to Chino Hills, California
Chino Hills is a California city located in San Bernardino County, about 32 miles east of Los Angeles, 35 miles west of San Bernadino, and 21 miles northeast of Anaheim. An affluent Los Angeles suburb which is largely residential, Chino Hills is bounded by Pomona to the north, Chino to the east, and Yorba Linda to the south. The city is serviced by California State Highways 57, 60, 71, and 91.
Virtually unchanged for hundreds of years, the city's rolling hills were originally the domain of a handful of ranches and homesteaders. Even up until the mid-1970s, Chino Hills was primarily rural and most of its land was used for dairies and equestrian interests. The subsequent couple of decades saw a period of growth, with extensive housing developments rapidly overtaking the area. The city incorporated in 1991, and since that time its population has roughly tripled. Chino Hills today is considered a desirable place to live and is well known for its high quality of life and beautiful rural atmosphere.
