Ontario discounts and free things to do
Not to be confused with the Canadian province, the city of Ontario is an exciting and comparatively affordable California destination ideal for family vacations. It attracts visitors with a vast array of cultural attractions, plenty of dining options and an excellent location right outside of Los Angeles. Stay within your budget during your stay by taking advantage of the low prices on Dollar Rent A Car's varied selection of Ontario rental cars as well as additional Ontario discounts. You can also save money by engaging in some of these activities:
Peruse the Maclin Open Air Markets
Drive your Ontario car rental to one of the largest outdoor bazaars in the state - the Maclin Open Air Markets, which is located on East Riverside Drive and open Tuesday, Saturdays and Sundays from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. You don't have to purchase anything to have a good time here. Walk through 40 acres to visit the friendly livestock, such as sheep, pigs, horses and goats, that live on the grounds. You can also window shop more than 50 vendors selling live birds, handmade jewelry, fresh-cut flowers and other goods.
Walk through the Chaffey Community Museum of Art
Park your Ontario car rental downtown and walk over to the Chaffey Community Museum of Art. This free museum invites residents and tourists alike to walk through the galleries and take in the contemporary collection. Along with looking through sculptures, paintings and works of other mediums by local artists, take some time to appreciate the building itself - the museum is housed in what was once the Ontario Power Company. The institution also hosts an array of special events, such as informative talks, wine tastings, fundraisers and dinners, though such occasions may require an admission fee.
