Mission Hills Reviews

1 review
Lompoc is my hometown. Most people look at this city as being boring and irrelevant in comparison to all other neighboring cities in California. In high school I saw it the same way. I could not wait to get out of this "dull" town. When I left for college I realized how great Lompoc really is. It may be small but I have met the nicest people I've ever known here. The community here is unlike anything else. The Village and many other neighborhoods are pretty safe. I wouldn't trade my childhood and growing up years spent here in Lompoc for anything else. Although we lost most of our flower fields here I still see this city slowly progressing. I could see myself living here again far in the future either when I have a family or when I retire. Lompoc has a small-town vibe yet is not far from fun places such as Santa Barbara, Solvang, the beach, and San Luis Obispo.
