What you should know about Chino

At the westernmost tip of San Bernardino County in Southern California lies the city of Chino. Bounded by the Chino Hills to the west and Riverside County to the east, Chino is part of the large metropolitan area east of Los Angeles known as the Inland Empire. The city was originally a Spanish settlement, and its name, the Spanish word for ‘curly’, was taken from the shape of the grama grass that once grew freely here. Traditionally an agricultural area, providing dairy products to the LA market, today Chino is now a thriving urban residential community.

Things to see in Chino

The small-scale Chino Airport is an unlikely but fascinating attraction in the city, with no less than 2 museums displaying a huge collection of antique aircraft. The airport was a training center for air force cadets during World War II and became a retirement home for obsolete warplanes. Many of these are incorporated into the on-site museums, Planes of Fame and Yanks Air, which provide informative exhibits to go with the impressive collections. Chino Youth Museum is a fun place to visit with the kids, featuring a miniature town as well as interesting exhibits on the area’s history. Meanwhile, the popular Prado Regional Park provides facilities for fishing, hiking, biking, disc golf, and picnics throughout its 2,000 acres of parkland and lakes. There’s also a golf course, as well as a shooting range used in the 1984 LA Olympics.

Good for families

Chino is a wonderful destination for a family vacation in the Southern California sun. There’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained in the city, from great shopping and top-class sports facilities to child-friendly attractions. A trip to the Chino Youth Museum makes for a fun and educational outing, with the history of the town presented in a way that appeals to younger visitors. For a more active day out, drop by the Prado Regional Park, an ideal spot for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Take advantage of the park’s open green spaces to enjoy a scenic family picnic lunch before returning to your Chino hotel.

How to get to Chino

LA/Ontario International Airport is the nearest major airport to Chino, just a short 20-minute drive away. Although a number of bus services run from the airport to neighboring cities, none of them serves Chino directly so it’s best to take a taxi. Driving is the preferred form of transportation in Chino itself but there are also a number of bus companies operating in and around the local area. For public transport connections to LA to the west and San Bernardino city to the east, take the short trip north to the Metrolink line in Ontario, which provides a popular and regular service.
