About California

Just 100 miles outside metropolitan Los Angeles, California City is a small urban locality in the Antelope Valley. With a population of only slightly greater than 14,000 people, California City’s residents form a small but friendly community.

The city is the third-largest in California by geographic size and measures just under 204 miles in total space. California City has only a small number of amenities within the city limits; however, it does house some popular attractions including Central Park, several gardens, and a PGA-certified golfing facility.

California City is situated within the Mojave Desert. Its location was of great appeal to developers who sought to turn this small urban center into California’s answer to the nightlife and entertainment found in nearby Las Vegas.

Plans for the city included the expansion of the property to include more than 130,000 acres and seven districts. Sadly, a series of lawsuits brought all future development to a halt. The land was sold and has remained abandoned since this time.

If you are searching for a California photo shoot venue in the heart of the high desert, you’ll have lots of great options from which to choose here.
