I lived in Apple Valley for 15 years and unhappy that I did. If your thinking of moving here there are a few things you may want to consider. Living in Apple Valley, Victorville and Hesperia is like living in Mexico. In order to get a job you need to speak Spanish. Most of the businesses have only Mexican managers and the community caters to people from Mexico who don't speak English. Not a great community to earn money or raise your non Spanish speaking children. However, if your Mexican and speak Spanish you will be very successful in Apple Valley, Victorville and Hesperia.
