town of apple valley

We here in The High Desert are placed right in between Los Angeles and Las Vegas thanks to Interstate 15. Most residents will tell you that they are not that interested in the goings-on of those two metro areas. They will tell you that living here you will find a quieter, slower pace and a more affordable lifestyle. Yes it’s true that when we want some serious retail therapy or a bigger choice of entertainment, we turn towards L.A. or Vegas. But it does not take too long before the excesses of the bright lights and big cities have us heading for home.

It seems for most people that grew up here whether in Apple Valley, Hesperia, Victorville, etc. that these communities still retain that small town feel and it’s not uncommon to bump into an old friend or even a former school teacher while you’re out and about. On the subject of being out and about, most anyone from The High Desert will readily share with you their stories about The Cajon Pass (in between The San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains). It is true that not all of them will be happy ones but if you compare the cost of living in Los Angeles, San Bernardino or Riverside Counties along with what you might pay in rent “Down the Hill” you will find that you can get a 3-bedroom house on a half-acre up here and still have money in your pocket. It makes the extra effort worth every mile.

So, everyone has their favorite places for food and just to hang out. Tammy and I are no different and so here is a short list of some of those places, we hope they become your favorites too (if they aren’t already):
