About California

At the heart of California’s Antelope Valley, California City is found only 100 miles from the metropolitan center of Los Angeles. A small city with only 14,120 residents to its credit, California City boasts a total land space of 204 square miles, making it the third-largest city by property size in the state of California. Among the attractions found in California City are a public recreational area, a small municipal airport, and a PGA-rated golf course.

The city’s developers hoped that California City would become on par with Las Vegas as the entertainment capital along the west coast of the United States. Unfortunately, legal entanglements forced the project to be set aside. Most of the land was sold, and the remaining partially developed property was allowed to become dormant.

A stark city of immense beauty, California City’s location in the Mojave Desert makes it the ideal spot to do some filming. If you’re searching for the perfect California filming location, the biggest problem you will encounter is narrowing your options down to only one.
