Less coyotes than when I moved here - 7/20/2018
This is a beautiful place. Gorgeous sunsets and sunrises, many different kinds of birds including the Mockingbird and phoebes. When I first moved up here we had many coyotes and we could hear them in the night, occasionally see them running down the street or sleep in our easement. Now we don't see any ever. Now I have so many rabbits in the area eating my vegie garden! I am disappointed with this town. I thought I moved to a countryside. Please let the coyote live Read More

Best city in the high desert, but... - 8/23/2017
I've lived in the desert most of my life. Of the main cities that make up the high desert (Victorville, Hesperia, and Apple Valley), I'd say it's the best, but this whole area is going downhill.

Weather: Summers 110+, winters get down into the 20s at night. (it can get really hard to find plants that can survive our summers AND our winters). It's windy all. the. time. Hot wind in the summer, cold wind in the winter. Very very dry all the time

Pros: Apple Valley has some nice areas (as well as some run down areas). In general, I feel safe in my home. There's a variety of property and home sizes. Hiking close by (Pactific Crest Trail for one), dirt bike riding, hang gliding, hot air balloons. Star gazing. I hear our golf course is pretty nice. A few man-made lakes near by and short drive to the mountains when you're missing the color green and trees. We've gotten some larger stores and restaurants, so it's not as small town as it used to be. Read More

Apple Valley: Who would love it and who would not. - 11/1/2012
To start off with, I never blog or chat, but I feel compelled to join this site and express my thoughts regarding Apple Valley and the high desert so here it is.
I have lived here for apox. 15 years and can't imagine living anywhere else and doing as poorly and as unhappily as I have here. It has been like a void that has sucked the life out of me as it has many others.
It has a service economy. The economy is horrid; more like 20 percent unemployment than the 12 percent that they say it is. I get accosted by beggers at most of the stores that I frequent. Worse of all, the mentality is such that many of the poplulation don't even want to work, if there were any jobs to be had. Being in your 20's or 30's and still living at home is acceptable.
I can't hold an intelligent conversation with hardly anyone. It is a cultural black hole with nothing to do. Even if you were the wealthiest person in town, there is nowhere nice to spend your money. You have to drive out of Read More

Desperate Desert - 10/3/2012
The High Desert as a whole has gone down hill since the mid '90s, when the state thought it a good idea to break up the gangs in L.A. and move them to the High Desert. Don't know what they were thinking! The gangs just brought more homies and family with them and established New ground in the desert. Getto choppers fly overhead all night.
Apple Valley has tried to stay out of the loop longer, because Hesperia and Victorville had more infrastructure early on. Apple Valley held out on commerce till mid 2000's.
I got so tired of it that I moved out of the area, for another state in 2001. Great weather for retirement though. Jess Ranch Apple Valley is isolated from most nonsense, for Read More

life in Apple Valley - 8/18/2012
I live in rural Apple Valley. Dirt road and 2.5 acre lots. The weather can be extreme here. Hot and windy in the summer and freezing at times in the winter. We couldn't live anywhere else in the county affordably and have horse property etc...Further in town there are many problems with crime and unemployment at an all time high. I just moved my young sons to flagstaff, az where they found work immediately.
Also, due to the large numbers of poorly educated people the local community college fills its schedule with remedial classes. My youngest son wasted two years there never getting a full schedule of academic classes.
My husband and myself are professionals so work is not a problem for us but most people either commute or are unemployed. I do not recommend this area to anyone!!
We are out of here as soon as possible most likely to Idaho. This community is overrun with illegals and gangs. We live out in the country and so don't experience the gang violence but it is Read More

Don't move here, Welfare-dump capitol!! - 8/30/2011
my parents moved here from Los Angeles in 1978. This town was great in those days, quiet, low crime, no gangs, decent schools. NOT anymore this town has no jobs, bad schools, bad cops, horibble medical facilities. It is overrun with trash, welfare recipients, drug addicts, and backstabbers!!!!
I moved away for 12 years, came back and its alot worse, theres a 'Hood" now, murders, armed robberies, car theft, and drugs! lotsa drugs! Meth capitol of the desert(adelanto too)! This is the worst place i have ever lived! If you want a future in this world, leave california! run far away!!!! i wasted too much time here! :( bye rat nest Read More

Apple Valley Homes - 8/1/2011
Apple Valley California definitely has a lot going for it these days! The cost of living is very affordable here and the weather is nice year round. You get a taste of the seasons here in the High Desert. I found a home Im going to buy in Apple Valley the other day on the apple valley california realtor website He is a real estate guy in town and seems to know the area very well. I like the place we found on his website in Sunset Hills with a view overlooking Victorville and Hesperia homes. Hopefully more jobs and dining come to the area in the Read More
