There has to be real good reason(s) or more like obligation(s) for anyone to live there. There are a lot of other places I much rather live in and only a few arguably worse.
If for some odd reason, you like the climate then you are better off in one of the nearby states to the East....just my 2 cents worth.

Outdoor activities: hiking, cycling, off-road vehicles, fishing, boating, water-skiing, camping, close to skiing/snowboarding.

Re: downtown, beats me, as far as I was concerned, downtown Palmdale was the AV Mall.

What hiking trails are there in Palmdale and Lancaster? Cycling where? Off-roading where? Fishing and boating at that big lake on the way when I drive out there?

Thanks dude.

Oh those outdoor activities do look nice. There is barely any reason to leave the Antelope Valley I see. Unless you work in another city or you are going away to college.

I think outdoor acitivies help make cities desirable.

Therein lies the problem. Many people moved out there to buy a house during the housing boom(s), and kept their jobs in SFV/LA, etc. So in/outbound traffic can suck during rush hours.

In fact, nearby Lake Los Angeles (a small, rural outskirt of Palmdale) averages the longest commute in the country.

I knew a guy that commuted to Ridgecrest from Palmdale! Yeah, where the heck is Ridgecrest, right?
