Review of Victorville, California


Never again
Star Rating - 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.
