Upland is a Californian city in San Bernardino County located at an elevation of over 1,200 feet. The city is part of what is called the "Inland Empire," which is the metropolitan area situated east of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Upland resides at the foot of the highest part of the San Gabriel Mountains, nestled comfortably against its rocky surfaces. Homes and neighborhoods are lavish and expensive in equal parts, given their prime location in being snuggled with the nearby breathtaking mountain range.
Upland was first and foremost an irrigation colony, founded as a small rural town based on the agriculture of citrus fruits and grapes. It was incorporated in 1906 after being previously named North Ontario. Today, the city is a beautiful destination for tourists and residents alike. Upland houses the Cable Airport, which is the world's largest family-owned and public use general aviation airport. The city is also served by the Metrolink commuter rail system on the San Bernardino Line, which runs from the Los Angeles Union Station to San Bernardino. California Highway 83 and 66 are also nearby, as well as Interstate 10 and 210. Traveling to and from Upland is easy with the convenience of public transportation as well as streamlined major roads, making it a commuter destination for those avoiding the Los Angeles lifestyle but desiring Los Angeles jobs.
