Incorporated as a city in 1911, the City of Rialto, located in San Bernardino County, is situated below the San Bernardino mountains, sixty miles east of the City of Los Angeles and 103 miles north of San Diego. The City of Rialto traces its roots back to well before the year 1500, when archaeologists believe the first settlements of Native Americans took place. Much later, around the late 1800s, the area began to be settled by families whose primary pursuits were agriculture and ranching, with vineyards and citrus groves abundant in the region. Rialto was formerly home to the US Army Rialto Ammunition Storage point which was used during World War II to support operations in the Pacific theater. It is not completely clear how Rialto got its name. One theory is that the name was formed by a contraction of the Spanish words Rio (river) and Alto (high). Another story is that the city was named after the Rialto Bridge (a landmark of Venice, Italy). Regardless, the bridge has been retained as a community symbol known as the “Bridge of Progress.”

Rialto residents are active and engaged, with a rich heritage of cultural and racial diversity. A suburb of San Bernardino, Rialto offers residents a sparse suburban feel, great schools, plenty of libraries and playgrounds, and safe, family-friendly neighborhoods.
