No, but it's twice the distance, and it's low desert out there, as opposed to high.

Unfortunately, for anyone going west on the 210 or the 10, there will be no such thing as a 30 minute commute out of the IE...

Fontana is fine along the 210. Generally, below Foothill Blvd in most IE cities is a bad idea. However if your work is in 92337, driving from N. Fontana to below the 10 is a true hassle street wise. They do a lot of freeway closures on the 10 and 15 freeways as of late.

In Fontana and Rialto, the nice areas start north of Baseline (lots of black gangs along Baseline in Rialto and the areas between Baseline and Foothill, especially off Sierra, aren't nice in Fontana), while in San Bernardino they start north of Highland (west of the 215, there are no nice areas though). Foothill is the borderline in Upland and Rancho, but east of around Citrus it starts getting bad north of Foothill as well, and gets bad north of Baseline once you hit San Bernardino.

Pay attention to the post date. It tells you how old the thread is.

Crime: Anything in northern/north west above 210 freeway Fontana is deemed somewhat safer than say, downtown Fontana or below Foothill Blvd. Try to avoid areas around Valley blvd, San Bernardino ave, Arrow & Juniper ave, basically all of Arrow, anywhere close to Randall or heading up towards Rialto into San Bernardino. Many people may disagree with me and say it is safe, but to me, if you can't safely walk from point A to point B without being hassled, that should tell you there that it's not safe. I have lived in many areas of Fontana. Being a different culture didn't help at out since I was outnumbered and treated with badly by the main dominant people of this city.

Traffic: The traffic is bad along Foothill, Sierra & Valley blvd which are the main streets in this city. Around 3pm-7pm is when it is at it's peak as people are getting their children from school or going to & from work.

Recreation: There are many areas such a Devore, Lytle creek and in the mountains where you can off road. Most people go to Barstow or drive to the inland deserts for that.

Re-estate is expensive. You are looking at the mid to high 400k-500k for a single family home.

In general, most people would consider this a "family friendly" city. I would agree if you're part of that 75% who blends in to the demographic in this area. I do not. Good luck.
