The city of Rialto sits in the middle of the Inland Empire, one of the fastest growing regions in the nation. However, you wouldn’t know it to visit or live here. Rialto treasures its small-town charm and slower pace of life. Rialto manages a Racquet and Fitness Center, a Performing Arts Theater, nine parks, a community center and a new senior center – even a municipal airport. In addition, you don’t have to travel far to have fun in the nearby mountains and desert – all are freeway close, earning Rialto’s nickname, “The Bridge City.” City officials are proud of the mixture and affordability of housing that allows so many of the residents to own their own homes, and point out that since the cost of home ownership is lower in Rialto, that equates to more discretionary income for residents to spend at local retailers and service providers. Rialto may just be the bridge to home ownership for you!
