Years ago I lived in Phelan and then Hesperia, which are just a couple of towns over from Victorville. I believe the prison is actually located in Adelanto and not Victorville. Adelanto used to have a pretty bad reputation but like I said, I lived there years ago.

I think for most people moving to the high desert the weather is the biggest adjustment. There is a definite chill in the air whenever the sun goes down and there is some snow in the winter. The summer is like a furnace blast and there are a lot of windy days in the desert. And a lot of blowing dust and sand. Also you will see a few flash floods so don't ever think you can drive through a puddle when the rain is pouring down. One good thing is that there is not enough moisture for fleas to live so if you have a pet you never have to worry about that. And the best thing (in my opinion) is the sky. You'll be able to see lots and lots of very blue sky. And other colors, there is usually a spectacular sunrise and sunset.

There is a lot of shopping nearby and from my recent visits there are a lot of people, a lot of traffic and a lot of new construction.

Enjoy your adventure!! and good luck.
