Overview

Introduction to Chino, California

Chino is located in San Bernardino County in the heart of the Greater Los Angeles region, about 35 miles east of Los Angeles and 25 miles northeast of Anaheim. Situated in the lush valley below the San Gabriel Valley Mountains, the city lies within 30 minutes of over 20 public and private colleges and universities. Chino is bounded by California State Highways 60 and 71, and provides close access to Interstates I-10, I-15 and State Highway 91.

Incorporated in 1910, Chino has a rich agricultural history which is noted in the city's motto: "Where Everything Grows." At one time the premiere center of dairy farming in the country, Chino in its more recent history has seen growth in other areas. Since the 1970s, a significant influx of business and industry has taken root in the city, which has developed into a well-established residential area infused with a well-rounded commercial presence.

Chino Attractions

For a small city, Chino offers a good mix of recreational, educational and cultural sites to see and visit. Prado Regional Park provides an inviting rural getaway, offering a variety of recreational options on more than 2,000 acres in the Chino Valley Basin. Visitors can enjoy fishing, camping, horseback riding, picnicking, boating and more. Located at the Chino municipal airport is the Planes of Fame Air Museum. The facility displays aircraft which span the history of manned flight, including numerous milestone-achieving test and research flight vehicles. The airport is also home to the renowned Chino Air Show, held annually in the spring. Also in town is the Chino Youth Museum, located in the historic First National Bank building in downtown Chino. Opened to the public in 1999, the museum chronicles the history of the Chino area and features interactive learning exhibits. There are many other sites of interest as well as world class attractions in Southern California and Chino's central location affords easy access to all of them.
