Sorry to say it, but Lancaster is a shithole. It used to be a somewhat small high desert community, and they actually had a dragstrip there. Then with the housing boom they built a ton of cheap houses for people to live in. It all crashed in the housing crash and Lancaster got hit hard. It's hot, dusty, and dry, and the wind never stops blowing. The crime is awful, and more people don't speak english than do. There are some good jobs there with the aircraft, and military stuff, but for a place to live, I can't think of much worse. Good luck. Mike.
