Los Angeles County Economic Development
If you are looking for adventure but do not want to give up city life, this is the perfect place for you. This county is the second most populated region in the Antelope Valley, at an elevation of 2,655 feet above sea level. Characteristic of a High Desert, Palmdale has a history of hot summer days followed by cooler winter temperatures, sometimes dropping below freezing. Palmdale was first discovered and occupied by the Yuhaviatam tribe of Native Americans in that region. The Antelope Valley served as a trade route for those in the Arizona and New Mexico area, leading to California’s thriving coast. Now Palmdale is known for its thriving aerospace industry, coining the nickname as the “aerospace capitol of the world.” The city has spearheaded the development of the Space Shuttle, and other historical aircrafts for the Air Force, NASA, and other airlines around the world.
This aerospace hot spot has all the attractions a family could dream of when planning their next vacation. The black bird airpark serves as a museum for some of the most prominent aircrafts in our nation’s history. If aeronautics is not your cup of tea then there is always the DryTown Water park, offering six acres of family fun for everyone. Located in the gorgeous Antelope Valley, you can drift along in the lazy river, or kick it up a notch and barrel down one of their many slides. When looking to wind down or take a break from reality, locals recommend the Pearblossom highway along Route 138. The drive features rustic mountain views, rolling roads, and a poppy bloom that extends for miles on end. The cost of living in Palmdale California is 24% higher than the national average. Palmdale’s homeownership rate is at 64%, indicating only 36% of people rent their home or apartment. This is due to the nostalgic hometown setting centered around families, an above average education system, and abundant opportunities for economic and social growth.

The average rent of a two-bedroom apartment is $1383
The median price for a home is $380,000
