POMONA, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 11, 2011) - Fairplex is preparing to host the exciting rides, unique foods and breath-taking exhibits and performances that define the L.A. County Fair. Opening on Labor Day weekend and entertaining visitors through the first weekend in October, the L.A. County Fair is just one of many exciting activities available in the heart of Southern California this summer.

Just nine miles from the Ontario Airport, Fairplex is conveniently located whether visitors are traveling from out-of-state, or simply driving from Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino or Orange Counties to enjoy the festivities. For guests seeking a weekend getaway, Fairplex features hotel accommodations at the comfortable and well-appointed Sheraton Fairplex Hotel. Alternatively, visitors with a passion for the road and recreational vehicles will find a warm welcome at the KOA RV Park located on the sprawling 543-acre Fairplex campus.

Guests looking to experience phenomenal California restaurants can partake in the farm-fresh cuisine of McKinley's Grille that offers organic foods grown locally at Fairplex's own Urban Farm. The farm-to-table movement has gained considerable popularity in the culinary world and guests can experience this trend first-hand at Fairplex. Casual dining is also available at the Finish Line Sports Grill where guests can relax amidst 70 flat-screen TVs featuring all televised sporting events, as well as a 400-seat theatre with automated satellite horse racing and electronic wagering.

Visitors also have the opportunity to make learning part of the adventure at The Learning Centers at Fairplex where educational programs are disguised as fun, cool games for those aged eight-weeks-old to 88-years-old.
