Antelope Valley is part of the Mojave Desert and Lancaster is a city in this valley. It is located in the northern part of Los Angeles County, about 70 miles from the city at about 2,000 feet in elevation. The San Gabriel Mountains and Tehachapi Mountains form an incredible backdrop for this high desert city.
The population of about 173,000 people has long enjoyed the arts and culture of the area, as well as the recreational opportunities and business options in the area. One of the biggest industries in the city is the defense industry, with close ties to aviation and NASA. The War Eagle Field, an airfield used for training in World War II, is only five miles outside the city.

Pros and Cons of Production Spaces in Lancaster
There are pros and cons of production space in Lancaster that may impact your final decision on whether to use the city or not. Each of these may either enhance or limit the scope of your project, so consider them carefully.
One reason that professionals love using space in Lancaster is that it is budget-friendly. Most California locations require a budget line-item increase, but spaces here will leave your budget intact and let you focus on the other items that need addressing.
There is plenty to see and do in Lancaster so although you might not be familiar with the city, you will not be bored during your downtime on the production project. The museums, restaurants, and natural areas are all favorites among residents and visitors.
Lancaster is only two hours away from Anaheim and Los Angeles, and three hours from San Diego. This makes access to the location fairly easy for both in and out-of-state professionals using production space here.
- Crime rates
The crime rates in Lancaster are higher than in other comparable cities. This might not seem important for a production space project, but higher crime rates end up impacting other areas as well, deepening the impact of the disadvantage.
- Variable weather
Lancaster does not have the same sunny weather that other California locations are known for. The summers are incredibly hot, and it does snow here in the winter. Sure, it is usually only a half-inch, but it still manages to surprise everyone and create havoc.
- Fewer opportunities
Overall, the city is more economically challenged than other locations. There are fewer job opportunities and more poverty in the city. Again, this does not necessarily have a direct tie to your production space gig, but the ripple effect can be felt throughout the city.
Famous Locations in Lancaster
