Possibly moving to Ontario, California

Posted previously asking about a move to Los Angeles area, more specifically Ontario, California (40 miles NE of LA)
I have questions regarding the area, cost of living, nice neighborhoods etc.

I posted a month ago asking about big-time moves, and a week ago asking advice on moving to Los Angeles from New Jersey. I have since had my interview with the hiring manager and gotten more details.
Here are the old posts for reference and some background.
-Location: Ontario, in Orange County. (NE of LA)
-Salary: Still negotiating salary, but it's range would be 70-85k to start with yearly raises from 5-8%.
What areas in Ontario are nice to live in? For my salary range would a nice studio apartment be affordable? I know that Ontario is about 40 miles outside of LA, how long is that time-wise, traffic considered, if I wanted to go into LA for a night etc. Is there anything to do in Ontario, what is it like, suburbs?
I'm really looking for something bigger than a 1-bedroom apartment or studio. I wouldn't mind renting a bi-level townhouse perhaps. My budget would be up to 2k a month. Ideally I'd love a spacious open-air kind of place, even if it was converted from something like a warehouse. Is this what a studio apartment is? Where are some good places to look for these listings?
Would it be worth living on the outskirts of LA, (would I still hit ridiculous traffic even if I wasn't downtown?)
Thanks for all your help in advance :)
