Information About Assisted Living Facility in Rancho Cucamonga
Rancho Cucamonga is one of the nation's fastest growing metropolitan areas located 37 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. Cucamonga means "sandy place," which derives from the Shoshonean Native American language.
Despite this misleading name, Rancho Cucamonga is nowhere near the beach. However, Rancho Cucamonga assisted living residents will enjoy beautiful Southern California weather all year round.
This city of about 170,000 has been identified as one of the safest places to live in the entire United States. Rancho Cucamonga’s historic buildings meld with newer, suburban developments, making the city a place of both modern luxuries and a celebration of a rich heritage.
Rancho Cucamonga Recreation
Rancho Cucamonga senior living residents seeking fresh air can visit one of many area parks, including Red Hill Community Park, where seniors often frequent the shuffle board tables. At Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park, visitors can rent a pedal boat and troll the lake for trout and catfish.
To get a break from all that California sunshine, local seniors head to the Victoria Gardens regional shopping center, which is a premiere retail complex that houses a 12-screen movie theater. Henry’s Farmers Market provides a more earthy shopping experience, while Ontario Mills Outlet Mall is the place to visit for excitement on a budget.
