LANCASTER, HOME OF THE GOLDEN POPPY

Lancaster sits in the Antelope Valley, approximately 60 miles east of Los Angeles. It is a bargain in the housing industry for first time buyers and those seeking the high desert air and open spaces. Aerospace is the top business sector with the home to the Space Shuttles and aircraft building being the draw to the area. There is a Fairgrounds and a professional baseball stadium in town. Hotels, shopping malls, and restaurants are all first class.

Being a visitor in Spring with the desert wildflowers as well as the golden poppy in full bloom is a treat for those interested in nature's ways. Something special about the desert flora. The Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve is well worth a visit to view the state flower. The latest hot spot for tourists in the area is the only Musical Road in all of the Americas. I took a video of this Musical Road for those of you that may not get to the area. But, if you get the opportunity to ride the road, do it.
