Small town, coming up... Posted On: 8/10/2008 10:49:06 PM
Barstow is a small town, with a population of just over 23,000. But it has grown tremendously over the course of only a few years. There is an outlet mall with many well known stores, including Old Navy, Banana Republic, Coach and Anne Taylor (to name a few). As far as recreation goes, there is one movie theater, as well as a drive in theater, a bowling alley, several well maintained parks and a Sports Arena with basketball courts, soccer and baseball fields, with park equipment for the children. However, the Sports Arena is open only in the evening. For nightlife, there are several small bars and clubs located in the town, with Los Angeles and Las Vegas located less than 2 1/2 hours (drive time) away.
The town has become known as a "truck stop" by many, or a place to eat and relieve yourself before continuing on to Las Vegas, but it is growing rapidly. Check back in five years, we'll be as big as Victorville!
