I would recommend moving to Lancaster and Palmdale, especially if you are from the Midwest. The weather is pretty similar, in terms of heat and cold, and the occasional windy spells. I love living in the AV. Most say stick to the westside, and that is pretty true, although there are some great communities on the eastside as well. If you move here I would recommend renting at first to get a feel of the community. There are many great people. If you are a churchgoer, we also have some great churches. The nicer areas generally tend to be around the college in Lancaster and Quartz Hill. I love it here!

I live in Acton and do a lot of shopping in Palmdale. It really doesn't feel like Los Angeles, and I don't find it attractive--it's in the middle of the desert with not enough trees. But I don't feel unsafe when I'm there! I think the crime of Palmdale has been exaggerated on this site. I know plenty of people who live in Palmdale and like it. You can get a lot of house for your money. But you may need to use the money you save on housing for private school tuition.
