Fun rides, games, corn mazes, delicious food, and perfect family photo ops await you.
When adventure calls, you can also head over to well-loved local trail spots such as Santa Ana Riverwalk Trail for an easy-going walking path that runs alongside the Santa Ana River, and take in the sights along the way. For the more adventurous spirits and experienced hikers, there’s Icehouse Canyon to the Cucamonga Peak Trail or the Third Stream Crossing via Middle Fork Trail—where breathtaking views are guaranteed.
If you’re feeling a little less outdoorsy and more in the need of something cozy, take a short drive and look no further than the Ontario Museum of History & Art. There’s something for every interest and inquisitive mind! Enjoy the Dia De Los Muertos exhibition or get creative with some hands-on art such as the Paint in the Dark: Dia de Los Muertos.
