- Town in California
Rating 3.33 out of 5 79 reviews
Crime is high. The city of Adelanto has no Police department and the sheriff's are undermanned. The sheriff's office in Adelanto is closed on weekends when they are needed the most. No dog catchers either so dog's roam the streets freely on the north side of Adelanto. Water is expensive and is not that drinkable. City Hall does not answer your calls. New houses have a melloroose tax which offers little to nothing for the taxpayer. The city is getting overcrowded and the roads are too small to get around
I like the affordability of living. However, I would like to see some key changes that include more respect, inclusiveness, and prioritization of COVID-19 safety measures.
Crime rate is not like that of bigger cities. South or new Adelanto is very calm and nice. There, Your average walk around your block is nice and quiet and peaceful. The houses are newer (2005 and up) and price for similar houses in Jurupa Valley or Eastvale would be $650,000, just looked it up to find comp homes. In terms of the neighborhood it is very similar to eastvale as I lived in both. The think it lacks is better markets within city limits. Lots of options just 10 min drive away in Victorville shopping area.
Adelanto is an expanding city in the high desert. The housing is affordable, but getting more expensive. There are some good schools. There are not that many people, it is overall a pretty good city
The city is partial in who they make follow the rules. There are a lot of homes guilty of citations. Our neighborhood looks trashy. But city hall goes after certain homes. Fireworks are a common everyday occurrence and the city does not follow through with going after those people. Fireworks are illegal except for the week of July 4th. Fireworks that leave the ground are illegal. Definitely wanting to move after 19 yrs here.
Grew up living in this small town and ima just say everyone here is loving. The moment you step into Adelanto you will feel like home. The houses are big and the neighbors are very nice. As well, I went to George Performing Arts Magnet School so if you are looking for a good school to send your children that is one of your options! In Adelanto, it does Snow quite often, however, grocery or anything essential is pretty far away you would have to drive to apple valley to get anything. 30/10 Really missing my hometown! Stay safe everybody!
Adelanto in the recent years has been improving and expanding with many stores being added in the area along with its own high school. Although it’s been expanding, the town is surrounded by marijuana dispensaries and jails. If you like to live in a quiet place this is a good place to live, but is relatively small in choices of stores and entertainment. The safety regarding Adelanto is questionable. At night I do feel fear in walking even though neighborhoods are quiet. There are sometimes gang vandalism on sidewalks and walls of the neighborhoods, and stories of home invasion seems to be somewhat common which makes me fear the safety of my house whenever I leave. The public schools in Adelanto are not a problem and care about their students, but the students their selves seem to be a problem in Adelanto. Constant fights, bullying, drugs, and low focus point on education seems to be common in Adelanto public schools within the student community.
Adelanto Is a small town with greats athletic people. There's a lot of Factory jobs in the town. There's the Maverick Stadium where there's sports events and concerts. The houses are really cheap and they are making new and better ones.
I like that Adelanto is a small town, however, there's no room for growth in this city and there are far too many unfinished projects.
While it's not one of the worst cities in the High Desert, there is not much to see. It is very good for those who would love to live in a city where people mind. However, there seems to be some small crimes going around late at night and it's unsafe to walk or be out at night in this city due to this. There is not a lot of events going around in this city since most events are being presented in the city next to Adelanto, which is Victorville. The schools are average and while there are some good schools, most would not meet your expectations.
Adelanto is very calm the only issue is that there’s not many places to go to for example everything like the mall or theatre is really far away even stores
A town that is growing. Very close to Victorville and not too far from Apple Valley. Very affordable place to live. Very hot desert summers, very cold desert fall and winter temperatures. About one hour away from Edwards Air Force Base.
Adelanto, like every city, has its positives and negatives. Adelanto is a small town located in the Mojave Desert about thirty minutes north of the inland empire , through the Cajon pass. Adelanto is a very isolated place, very quiet, and polution free to which you can see the stars at night. The high desert itself has one of the bet sunsets you can ever experience and the economy exceeds compared to the city of Los Angeles. Although the town offers a quiet environment, the people can be dangerous. Places such as old Adelanto withhold gang members and at times shootings occur. However, I myself have not first- hand experienced these events and I have lived niche life in the town with many amazing opportunities.
Adelanto isn't one of the best places to live. Luckily, there are a few blocks out here that are quiet and peaceful. The other part of town is rough and there's a lot of work in the city to be done, i.e. pave streets, clean up etc.
what i like about adelanto is, the beautiful sun sets and sun rises. i have not seen any better yet. also the beautiful snow capped mountains in the winter. it gets cold but, i love the cold. i am from los angeles. i love the fact that i can get up at 2 am in the morning , open my door and walk outside without little or no disturbances. the fields provide some very beautiful flowers when we get a good supply of rain. i love the cool crisp air in the morning. tho only thing that needs to improve is more jobs to help the long commutes down the hill and we need some side walks. would make a great power walk regimen.
Adelanto is a small town in California that has cheap housing but there is little to do in the town. However it's usually peaceful and not much happening.
I enjoy my neighborhood in Adelanto, the people are pretty friendly. However, I will say that local stores are kind of far away and some places around here don't feel very safe.
