Pomona packs a punch on the edge of LA

Sitting like a divider between the cities of the Inland Empire and the sprawl of big-city Los Angeles, Pomona was once the kingpin of California's southern citrus belt. These days it's probably better known as the home of the LA County Fair, which erupts over the old raceway grounds with twirling rides and Ferris Wheels in September. A clutch of interesting local art museums, motorsports institutions, cool microbreweries, and prime access to the hiking trails of the San Gabriel Mountains all add up to make Pomona vacation rentals a darn attractive prospect though.

Things to do

Pomona is perfect for petrol heads

Pomona isn't just about citrus farms and state fairs. It's also home to some must-visit attractions for out-and-out petrol heads. Take the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum, where hot rods and purring motorcycles bolster one of the top racing exhibits this side of the Rockies from Daytona. What's more, the museum conveniently joins directly to the Auto Club Raceway, which hosts regular rally showdowns and nitro-heavy drag races. For something a little less fumy, you could always break out to the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, where mountain walking and wildlife viewing are top of the menu.

Activities

Pomona showcases LA's quirkier side

While the countless visitors strut down Hollywood Boulevard and hop between the strips of Venice Beach in LA proper to the west, those who've bagged Pomona vacation rentals can look forward to a host of more off-beat activities on that Californian getaway. For starters, there's the annual celebrations of the L.A County Fair, bringing freestyle motocross shows and livestock parades to the town's parks. Then there are the local brewhouses, where you can go to learn all about Californian hops and craft. And there are the train museums, dedicated to the great locomotives of yesteryear.

Weather

Pomona has something every month of the year

While nearby Los Angeles booms during the high summer with sun seekers eager to ride the Malibu waves, rub shoulders with the stars, and kick back in Orange County, Pomona enjoys a much more consistent set of attractions. Naturally, the county fair in September sees Pomona vacation rentals fill up to bursting, while other travelers settle here in winter _ between December and March _ to enjoy the ski pistes of San Gabriel, and others come in spring for the pretty citrus blooms and wildflower meadows.

Natural features

Pomona sits in the shadow of San Gabriel

Pomona vacation rentals might seem far away from the Wild West, nestled between the various suburban satellite cities of LA, but they actually sit just a stone's throw from the rises of the rugged San Gabriel Mountains. Snow-capped in winter, these host ski fields at Mount Baldy, and come with chaparral-topped ridges where bears and cottonwood groves coalesce. Some of the most challenging hikes include scrambles to the top of Mount San Antonio through the ponderosa pine forests, or encounters with the curios canyons and rock formations of Kratka Ridge.
