Overview

Introduction to Upland, California

The California city of Upland is nestled at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains in San Bernardino County. The city is situated 40 miles east of Los Angeles along Interstate I-10, and is bordered by Rancho Cucamonga (to the east), Ontario (to the south), and Claremont (to the west). Other major highways nearby include Interstates I-15 and I-215; and California State Highways 60 and 91.

Already a big citrus production area at the time of its incorporation in 1906, Upland (originally named North Ontario) took shape as a small rural town grounded in an agricultural base. As the 20th century unfolded, the city developed into a residential and retail community, keeping its country and urban flavor while absorbing the cultural influence of its large neighbor to the west, Los Angeles. Nicknamed "The City of Gracious Living", Upland today is a diversified city which still retains its original small town charm.

Points of Interest in Upland

Historic Downtown Upland is a quiet leisurely place replete with antique stores, custom shops, and fine restaurants. The district is also home to a number of annual events and festivals. These include: The Annual Upland Lemon Festival (April), a multi-faceted event which features a carnival, an arts and crafts fair, a children's fair, and three stages with live entertainment. Every Thursday evening from April to October, the Town Center is host to the "Second Avenue Market", a farmers market and street fair with live music, food, kiddie rides, and more. "A Taste of Upland" is a May event which celebrates a century of fine dining and, as the city motto states, gracious living. In December, Upland hosts the Children's Christmas Parade, an annual holiday event. The surrounding area of Southern California is the venue of many notable attractions. A short drive will bring visitors to these sites and also to a wide variety of recreational areas, including a multitude of area beaches and the mountain resorts of Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear.
