Tucked away in the Antelope Valley in Southern California, Lancaster actually sits in the western part of the Mojave Desert. This city actually has a population of more than 168,000 despite the fact that it’s in the desert. It’s also not far from downtown Los Angeles, which means it’s near many of the other cities that make up the LA suburbs. That’s why it’s so large—it may technically be in a desert, but Lancaster is certainly not in the middle of nowhere.
Lancaster is home to several large defense contractors, including Lockheed Martin and Boeing, plus the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center and other government agencies. Space shuttles and other major aircraft are designed and assembled in Lancaster. Green energy is also a large industry here, with the city leadership working to make Lancaster the first net-zero city in the U.S. If that goal is reached, Lancaster will create so much clean energy that it will be completely power everything in the city.
Lancaster is known for being a welcoming community. Condos in the city range from $62,000 to $400,000. Single-family homes range from $99,000 to $1.3 million.
