A goofy little country town in between the desert and mountains, just north of LA. Almost everyone has lived here there whole life, so everyone knows everyone. Seriously. You go "down below" to LA, and you see someone you know. Howdy Pardner!
It feels like it is stuck in the 1980s with its conservative politics, and the fact that everyone goes to church, I feel like I am in the Bible belt of the south. Many businesses are closed on Sunday. Lancaster has more churches per capita than any other city in CA.
Most everyone up here is in the military or works for an aerospace company.
Overall it is a good community, not much to do in terms of night-life, but the surrouding mountains and desert are good for people that like to bike or hike.
People move here once they have had their fun and just want to settle down, and ride a horse.
Where are you from?
I am from Lancaster!
Oh really, I have family living in Pennsylvania.
No Lancaster in CA.
There's amish country in CA?
Well not really, but kind of, never mind. Lancaster is a little city in the Mojave Desert by Edwards Air Force Base.
Oh, Edwards, I have heard of Edwards, where the space shuttle lands, you should have said that earlier. I know exactly where that is!!
