I just moved here... whats not to love - 6/14/2011

I just moved her from Long beach and haven't had a single problem. the city dies at night its so quiet I get scared. I haven't seen a single drug dealer or a gang member and Being from Long Beach and living in a good neighborhood by the Beach I've still seen worse then what happens in Victorville. I see tons of job opening but I guess everyone's too good for retail jobs. The cost of living is so low that I can actually work retail and afford my own home. I was making 12 a hr in Long beach and my boy friend was making 14 a hr and we could barely afford gas, food, and clothes for our son let alone our 1800 mortgage for a 2 bed room house that literally was falling apart six months after we bought it. You should be happy. you obviously haven't been to long beach and you would think its a good city with its million dollar homes but its full of three types of gangs that love to kill each other off and any kids or elders that get in their way and police who will tell you that the area is really the Longos territory as if the concede to gang control. Victorville is quiet, family friendly, and cheap. ITS way better than all of LA county. To top that off you have the most amazing views and I cannot wait until I am all settled in so I can take my kids hiking in angeles national forest...[read more...]

What a disaster Victorville has become - 1/1/2011

Victorville is one of the worst cities in California. It's hot, crowded and full of riff raff. Gang Bangers and Illegal's are everywhere. Jobs are none existent and its the epitome of the welfare state. The City and State have done an embarresssly poor job with the former George AFB. That could have been an economic gold mine but it was bafooned and mismanaged into bankruptcy. What a disaster Victorville has become. I cannot wait to get out of here. [read more...]

Enter If you Dare!!! - 10/5/2008

I have lived here my entire life, born in Apple Valley California (neighboring Victorville.) My entire family has live here since the early sixties. I am only 25 but can not wait to leave here. As a single white female I find every day to be scarier and scarier. We are home to the seventh worst wal-mart in the nation. We are also home to the many Prisions and the best hospital in the High Desert, DEATH Valley opps! I mean Desert Valley ;-). Housing is cheap but consequently gang members, drug dealers and all out bums come along with the cheap housing. I am scarred of live here any more and am making plans to move ASAP. The plus sides are nice weather, close to vegas, the beach and mountains, good shopping. If you don't mind dogging a few bullets or having your house broken into then Victorville is the place for you! Good Luck![read more...]

Never again - 9/16/2008

I lived in Victorville for almost three years, attended the junior college for about a year and a half. Victor Valley College is good for a JC, but there is really nothing else to recommend this place. High crime, traffic, poor city planning (you'll love those city streets that take you out to the middle of a field and simply end, or all those bottlenecks where three turn lanes merge into one), unfriendly people, one of the worst public library systems in California. On the plus side, its warm almost year round, and there's lots of shopping. But Victorville, Hesperia, Apple Valley and even up to Barstow are just dirt lots with only a few palms and joshua trees to add any beauty. Home prices are falling because people are leaving. I left Southern California for Northern California, and will never go back. If you gave me a million dollars and a mansion in Victorville I wouldn't live there again for six months. A dump, plain and simple. Next to San Bernardino, the worst place I have ever lived.[read more...]

A high desert climate - 6/3/2008

Victorville is one of several cities in California's Mojave Desert. Many people think of sand dunes when they think of deserts but a high desert is quite different. While summers bake in 110+ degrees winters chill your bones with temps in the 20s. Another oddity is the amazing wind. The seasons are sprinkled with episodes of 50 mph gails that sand blast yout car windsheild leaving micro-pits that reflect the setting sun. People either love everything about this climate or hate everything about this climate, like the High Desert itself there is no moderation.[read more...]

DON'T MOVE HERE!! - 10/17/2007

I've read all the comments and everything they have said is true. This place is awful! You can find some very small pockets that are okay like Spring Valley Lake or near Jess Ranch but other than that, the city sucks! Do not move here unless you're poor, on welfare, are a gang member, changing your career to a meth dealer, moving from Compton or need to move here because someone in your family just got transfered to the local federal penitentary.[read more...]

Crime on the rise - 6/23/2007

Crime is increasing. When we moved here from Los Angeles we could leave our home unlocked and go for a walk. Now you leave donations on your driveway for the Salvation Army and someone will come and help themselves in a matter of hours.[read more...]

A little windy, but Summer is not as hot as some - 6/14/2007

As a high desert, victorville is a little windy most of the time, but it's bearable. Summer is not as hot as some people would imagine, it's always breezy at Summer night.[read more...]

Big mistake - 1/26/2007

My husband and our two small children moved here just about a year ago and I sooo regret it. We live not far from Silverado high school and weve had nothing but problems with the unruly kids in the area. Theres no employment up here to speak of theres drug deals going on at my next door neighbors and kids just walk in the street even if you honk and your right behind them, they totally ignore you. We mostly keep to our self's so we dont know but two of our neighbors and they've agreed the neighbor hood has gone down hill quickly. So if you dont mind that then the super hot summers and the freezing windy winters might get to you. So guess I'd just say stay away from any schools, Ive been told Apple Valley is nice.[read more...]

Do not consider Victorville to move too - 12/24/2006

The costof living is high. The people are rude. Everyone of your neighbors willcompete with you about who has the best home, with all the home building going on,competition is at its high.Worst of all there are no over 10:00 dollar per hour paying jobs, seriously. The utility bills are extremely high and more than 80,000 people commute an hour away to get to work every day.[read more...]

Cost of living too high and Victorville is not wor - 12/10/2006

If anyone is contemplating moving to Victorville, I would suggest to go to the neighborhood you anticipate to live in and ask the community about Victiorville.I can save you the trip and tell you that you may find a three car garrage, five bedroom hoom but at 480,000 plus. Well if you dont own your own business or have no mortgage payment you are in for a big employment surprise.There are no good paying jobs, avg pay 8.00 per hour. The school test scores are verry low, there are more registered sexual offenders in the high desert which Victorville is in;than there is in any other county nationwide. Gangs from Los Angeles have infiltrated the high desert. The water bill is guaranteed to be among the highest water bills you will probably ever receive. People are rude, and your neighbor will more than likely be competing with you over who has the better house. Victorville is a front. Unless you live in it, you can actually see its true aspect. The schools are overcrowded,about 32 kids per teacher. Traffic is like Los Angeles(heavy). I moved my family here four years ago, I commute to work 90 minutes away along with an estimated 80,000 commuters per day. This information on how many commute out of the high desert you can thank Cal Trans for providing such info. Cost of living is 20% above the national average. I can happily state that I am moving my family out by Jan 2007. There is only one thing nice about living in Victorville, the weather(all four seasons). I have been told by Victorville resident whom have been here fifteen twenty years ago that Victorville was then a very pleasant place to live and raise children, but that they never projected so much downfall. As a matter of fact the only Walmart in Victorville is among the top Walmarts with the highest theft and crime in its area nationwide. You be the judge...[read more...]

Victorville change for the worse - 8/15/2006

Hello I am moving out of this City. It has changed too much for the worst. The housing is affordable but the streets are awful. There are too many people moving up here and waiting times have tripled everywhere. The medical care staff have been very rude up here as there are too many patients and not enough doctors, especially ones that speak english. Too hot in the summer as well. Many people are very hostile and rude on the roads, especially Bear Valley Road. Too much growth too soon.............Bad planning as usual by our overpaid indifferent politicians. Adios California..................[read more...]
