Victoria Gardens is a area of high end department stores and eateries. They have laid it out like mini city with lots of wonderful plaza's with benches, tables, and lots of lovely landscapes. It just happened to stumble on it while I was exploring this area. There is lots of ample parking garages and metered parking along the streets. Just be...more

Foothill Boulevard in Rancho Cucamonga still echo's part of old Americana known as Route 66. It has often been called the Mother Road or America’s Main Street. Throughout the west, it still is known for its unique car culture and for its creative highway signage, motels, trading posts, tourist traps, and service stations. What is unique, is Rancho...more
Located in the Food Hall is this very lovely small carousel. I asked the young lady who was operating it if she knew the history of it. She said it was privately owned and they brought it from Italy and was all hand painted. I have never seen one so small, but it was so much more colorful than some of the bigger ones. Not big enough for adults, so...more

The ambience is pretty nice. The restaurant is connected to the humongus, gigantic Bass Pro Shop with it's log cabin inspired design. The restaurant features several life size fish hanging from the ceiling including Tuna, a Great White Shark, Swordfish, Trout, etc. A huge actual aquarium in the restaurant with tropical fish is impressive.

This is very lovely food mall. Not too many impress me, but they incorporated some of the wonderful local history into the decor of this building. Really beautiful building with some really good choices of places to eat from. Outside is a patio to sit and a playground for the kids or maybe an adult or two:)From the web site:Great Khan'sPhone: (909)...more
I sometimes think there is just not enough Vietnamese restaurants in SoCal. But I guess that depends on the city. SoCal tends to be divided up by ethnicities so I'm sure there are a ton of Vietnamese restaurants in Santa Ana, CA. Anyway, in Rancho Cucamonga, I only know of this one. I often read the lengthy menus and always end up ordering the same...more
This is my favorite place to eat when I'm at work. It's small hole in the wall, take out Japanese restaurant. They have your basic Japanese plates along with a small variety of sushi. They also have some twists like their summer noodles. Cold ramen noodles with sliced up cucumber, sliced up fried egg, chicken teriyaki and red ginger with a...more
Compared to Germany, the public transportation is almost non-existent. There are not that many bus stops throughout the city and they are far from each other. You need a car, car, car! Did I mention car already?However, the public transit agency serving the San Bernardino Valley and Rancho Cucamonga, is called Omnitrans.To check the routes,...more

This place is actually amazing. It's laid out like a mini city with roads, lights, crosswalks, restaurants, period architecture, and beautiful landscapes. The stores here are very high end, but supposedly the prices are suppose to be competitive. Not sure, because I am not a shopper, but it was fun exploring his place.Hours may vary from store to...more

So, there probably isn't a man on earth who wouldn't like shopping at Best Buy! A popular franchise here in Southern California. It's hard to go through the store without buying something. Hours: Mon-Sat 10:00am-9:00pm and Sun 11:00am-7:00pm. Computers, cameras, televisions, DVD players, speaker systems, stereos, boom boxes, refridgerators, vacuum...more

If you wanna shop peacefully without disturbances at Target, don't wear beige pants and read t-shirts.
We went shopping there and Cris' mother was repeatedly asked for help from other customers because they assumed that she's working there. Only then we noticed that coincidentally both of us were wearing beige and red that day hehehe....
Nah, seriously, I do not mind helping people if I can, but at least back then, I wasn't familiar with the store and didn't work there, even though my clothes seemed to tell differently *grin*
It can get very hot and easily have 30°C - 38°C for a long period of time. Those temperatures are also what the forecast for August says. So pack lots of light fabrics, tops, t-shirts etc and if your skin is sensitive, don't forget the sun block if you plan to do lots of outdoor activities.
Photo Equipment: You don't have to carry lots of film rolls, you can buy them in most stores.
If you use a digital camera, you can go for example to 'Walgreens' with your card and get there within ca. 1 hour prints of your photos or a photo CD. Walgreens is just an example. There are other stores in Rancho C. that offer the same service.
Named for the Gabielino's Native Americans who existed as one of the largest tribes in North American Continent. The San Gabriel Mountains are just south of the Sierra Mountain Range. Just East and North East of Los Angeles, running c.50 mi (80 km) westward from Cajon Pass. San Antonio Peak (10,080 ft/3,072 m) is the highest of the range. Citrus fruits are raised on the southern foothills. I've grown up seeing this beautiful landscape since I was a kid and have explore some its very vast beautiful areas. It one of the most accessible areas that millions enjoy every year for its premier campgrounds, hiking, and some very panoramic views.

Go and watch a baseball game of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes at the "Epicenter". Went there on June 4th to see the game against the Lake E. Storm and had a good time. It's a small stadium with a familiar atmosphere.

I thought this was really unique how they incorporated a police substation into this mini shopping city. I like the fact they chose a 1930's architecture.7743 Kew Avenue, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, 91739Phone: (909) 477-2828 Dispatch: (909) 941-1488 Office Hours: Mondays to Fridays, 8:00 am to 5:00 pmStaffed by one Sergeant, one...more
One thing that I noticed in Rancho were the parks. There are over 20, almost every community seems to have one, varying in size. The bigger ones with lakes, many picnic facilities, pedal boat and aqua cycle rentals (like in Guasti Park) but also the smaller ones have the usual green, playgrounds, basketball and baseball areas or sometimes...more
