It's not that bad! Posted On: 2/20/2009 1:25:02 PM
I have lived in the Antelope Valley my whole life. I am now 30, but I went through the public school system here and I remember having wonderful teachers from elementary school through high school! I am now married with children and live in a decent neighborhood in west Palmdale. My children currently go to one of the best schools in west Palmdale in my opinion. I am so elated with their teachers and the school program. I understand there are concerns about the crime rate, but according to a recent article by the Daily News the crime is at a 7 year low in the AV. Mostly due to stronger police presence and cracking down on the gangs. As for the weather, I love it here! I feel like we definitely get 4 seasons, but without all the hassel of several inches of snow during the winters. I like Palmdale and think it offers great recreation programs and there are several things to do such as the water park, Mulligans (a fun center for kids), Concerts in the park... not to mention all the major theme parks like Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Knotts Berry Farm as well as the major beachers are only an hour or two away. There are some bad areas out here, but that is going to be the case anywhere you live. I believe it's all about what part of town you live in and who you associate with that makes what city you are living in live up to your standards.
