Next up is Monrovia, which has been around a while – it dates back to 1887. In a sense, Monrovia helped get McDonald's restaurants going: in 1937, Patrick McDonald opened a restaurant at Monrovia's airport called the Airdrome, which sold 10-cent burgers and five-cent all-you-can-drink orange juice.
In 1940, he and his two sons moved the operation west to San Bernardino, where they opened a new place called "McDonald's." The rest, as they say, is history.
Monrovia can also take you back with the Monrovia Historical Museum – check out the 120-year history of the city with the origin of McDonald's included.
