The California city of Upland is nestled at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains in San Bernardino County. The city is situated 40 miles east of Los Angeles along Interstate I-10, and is bordered by Rancho Cucamonga (to the east), Ontario (to the south) and Claremont (to the west). Other major highways nearby include Interstates I-15 and I-215; and California State Highways 60 and 91.
Already a big citrus production area at the time of its incorporation in 1906, Upland (originally named North Ontario) took shape as a small rural town grounded in an agricultural base. As the 20th century unfolded, the city developed into a residential and retail community, keeping its country and urban flavor while absorbing the cultural influence of its large neighbor to the west, Los Angeles. Nicknamed “The City of Gracious Living,” Upland today is a diversified city which still retains its original small town charm.
