Adelanto Reviews

Adelanto is a great town with great diversity and even though I still may be young I feel that this small town has a lot to change. As a High school Junior I hear about fights and sometimes violence outside of school, which I believe should be resolved with tighter patrols or encouraging citizens to report any violence to police. Luckily the mayor, Rich Kurr, has approved the construction of more shops nearer to residential areas because the usual commute to a store from where I live is about 5 minutes max 2 1/2 minutes minimum. Overall this city is a great place to raise a family and to live peacefully even when the weather feels like it will melt you or when it will turn you into a human popsicle.
Review Adelanto
The beauty of Adelanto is that it is a small town. You are not constantly in traffic like you are in major cities. It is a typically quiet town, but it is also growing at a fast rate. The price for housing is extremely affordable compared to most of California. What I want to see for the future of Adelanto is that they continue to develop the city. By adding new markets, restaurants, and other buildings, it will lessen the commute for others. Also, it will create more jobs for this rapidly growing town.
I live in the old Adelanto CA. It is an isolated area, but very affordable, and the housing conditions are nice. There are many nice places to look at while out there. One place to stop at is the Buddhist temple, it is a place of learning. One must also drive out too Mojave’s Regional Park, where one can fish, swim, play, barbecue, and just relax. Although there are many good areas, everything is far apart. In that isolated area I live in is called old Adelanto, currently everything is being built in new Adelanto. This needs to change.
