Hesperia, besides Los Angeles, maybe perhaps the best city in Hesperia. It's quiet, it's peaceful, it's unlikely to go corrupt, and it has BEAUTIFUL houses. Somebody has to be like me, appreciating Hesperia, because there is perhaps TOO many things to love about it. People, the peace, the schools, the restaurants, OH, I love it!

You can understand a lot about the neighbors of Hesperia by the the condition of where they live: homes with watered lawns and security protected gates live directly next to tiny apartment-like homes surrounded by nothing other than dirt. The atmosphere I get from this city is isolation where the people around you are separated from each other by large swaths of land. At night, it can get so dark that you might as well be living on Mars millions of miles away. As a benefit of this, you can't help but feel safe yet other wise lonely if you do not intentionally seek out human interaction. Avid use of exploration is required to keep a sane mind in this town. Places I regularly explore are the Hesperia Lake Park and Hesperia Civic Plaza Park as they are still very in touch with nature and beauty despite being surrounded by arid desert land, with the latter having a well-designed library for people who want to use the power of this cities loneliness for peace and quiet while studying.
I have lived in Hesperia for my whole life. That is 23 years! I have lived in the same house my entire life and have deep roots to this city. Somehow, Hesperia has something special about it that keeps me staying here. We are located in a high desert in Southern California, so we have a unique ecosystem and beautiful nature. There is nothing like our sunrises and sunsets, with the orange and pink blending together. This city offers friendly neighbors and city events that keep people in touch. Hesperia isn't perfect, but its special and thats enough for me.
