Living in Fontana

Fontana is a relatively young city of some 200,000 in southern California, having been settled in 1913 and only really becoming urbanized when a steel production facility was opened here during WW2. It may be this rapid growth that gave the city its motto, 'The City of Action', and it is a growth pattern that shows little sign of abating; the city's population has risen exponentially over the last decade. As an expatriate living in Fontana, you will be able to enjoy a taste of the classic American cultural life here, with various theaters, art exhibitions and Community Centers dotted around the city. The Center Stage Theater is one of the most popular, and the Lewis Library and Technology Center is also highly worth a visit. Expatriates living in Fontana can also enjoy the city's beautiful natural settings, with a visit to the Mary Vagle Nature Center obligatory, and plenty of health, fitness and outdoors events and groups on offer.

Moving to Fontana

As the city is a relatively new one, expats moving to Fontana from abroad can as yet only fly directly to the nearby Ontario International Airport from Mexico, or take a connection flight going through a larger US airport. The city also has links to four freeways, including the world famous Route 66, and a train service called Metrolink. Expatriates moving to Fontana can find a good collection of general information on expatriation on the InterNations website, particularly in our online Expat Magazine. This is a comprehensive collection of articles on topics ranging from culture shock and international business etiquette to living and working abroad. InterNations members also contribute articles and other content, which is another good way to get a feel of what expatriation, and moving to Fontana or a similar destination, is likely to entail.

Working in Fontana

The 'city of action' lives up to its nickname with a busy economic life that expats working in Fontana should find stimulating and motivating to be a part of. The city has a strong manufacturing sector, with various small industries, and a large part of the economy is tied to trucking and industrial haulage. The nearby Auto Club Speedway also brings a lot of energy and business to the city. After work, expatriates working in Fontana can enjoy the local cuisine, bar scene and regular cultural events. It is also easy to get in touch with other expats in Fontana on the InterNations website. Our forums, discussion groups and private message system are popular with members around the world as a way to organize meet-ups, socialize and find a city's local international community. Expatriates in Fontana should be able to find plenty of other global minds, as the city continues to thrive and grow year on year.
