Review of Barstow, California

At least it's not as bad as South Lake Tahoe
Star Rating - 12/11/2019
The positive of Barstow- yes there is something positive that can be said about Barstow.
At least it's not as bad as South Lake Tahoe. The only reason it gets 2 stars instead of one.
The negatives- everything else
Lots of drugs, tweakers, very run down, high crime and trashy people and criminals everywhere. Not quite as bad as South Lake Tahoe but still pretty bad.

I lived in Barstow and did not have the misfortune of being confronted or bothered by drugs or tweakers. The apartment I lived in was averagely maintained, but certainly not run down. If you look for trouble you will find it. Keep yourself to yourself and you won't have any problems. Very racist city though.
