City of Fontana, CA

Fontana in San Bernardino County, is a well known stop for truckers due to its strategic location with I-10, State Route 210, and I- 15 all passing through or near the city. Transportation is a popular theme in Fontana, where the city annually celebrated cars in a street fair called Cruising Spring Street. The evening event draws thousands out to explore the classic vehicles parked along the "main drag" of town where around 200,000 residents live, work and play.

Tourists come to see the special events Fontana hosts so lovingly, including plays and performances at the historic Center Stage Theatre built in 1937 as a single screen movie theatre. Remodeled in 2008 and re-opened as a performing arts venue, it hosts musicals, plays, revues, cabarets, murder mysteries and special events on "The Center Stage". Center Stage Theatre is located at 8463 Sierra Ave., Fontana, CA (

Another popular tourist attraction is the Auto Club Speedway on the site of the Kaiser Steel Mill.

The love of the engine has never been far away from Fontana. During the 50s and 60s Fontana had a premier, regional drag racing course, Mickey Thompson's Fontana International Dragway . Car racing was resurrected in 2006 when NASCAR Auto Club Speedway opened in Fontana.

Fontana shares borders with Rialto and San Bernardino and sits on the edge of the San Gabriel and Jurupa mountain ranges, at an approx. 1,000 - 2,000 foot elevation. In one part of the city the elevation actually climbs to around 2,500 feet, so you may find yourself shifting gears or enjoying inclines and descents.

While commuters actually make the trek daily into Los Angeles and Orange Counties, Fontana residents are embracing their city more and more, thanks to parks, arts, recreation, and plenty of places for exciting car challenges and sports.
