The Cat House

This is a small non-profit exotic feline breeding center about 1 hour north of Los Angeles which houses over 70 exotic endangered cats.

Reviewed By Flash2 - Mississauga, Ontario

The cats are beautiful! I felt conflicted as many of the cats were in small cages. Several cats were pacing and howling. They didn't seem comfortable however we were told it was near feeding time. Very small facility and shouldn't take more than one hour to see it all. Can't imagine what it would be like for the cats in 100 degrees temperatures as it gets in Southern California. It says it is a non profit but apparently was owned by a couple. The husband just recently passed away. Also not sure of the advantages of such a facility? $7.00 per person and we paid $28.00 for 4 adults. Good value meh?

Civic Musical Road

Reviewed By Diane M - Lancaster, California

This road is quite unique. From what I understand, it was located elsewhere, but the music was disturbing neighbors. The new location is somewhat isolated, so a long drive from out of Antelope Valley is probably not warranted, unless you just gotta hear it. You actually do get the melody for us older listeners. The idea of a musical road is intriguing for the younger set.

Air Force Flight Test Museum

Reviewed By Cavydad - Camarillo, California

Fascinating perspective of the Air Force. Area 51 is not accessible. Edwards offers an insight of what might be going on in the Nevada desert. What a range of weopanry and views of the devanstrating tools of destruction.

Still, the planes are interesting and the connection to the Space Shuttle and NASA was terrific.

Overall, a great day.

Willow Springs International Raceway

Reviewed By SanMo - Malibu, California

Several race tracks. Several driving schools. Many different skill levels.

I first attended this track 7 years ago----sent my daughter (15 1/2 years) for a defensive driving/drivers ed class. They taught her how to pass, brake, skid, abs brakes etc.

I finally returned this week. Recently bought a sports car and wanted to learn to drive it well, safely and fast. Joined PCA and attended a day at Streets of Willow Springs.

So Much fun! I learned to drive my car fast, (no tickets!) drive safely and learn to how to drive on a track. I'm so going back! No other experience to compare, but I'm gonna return!

The Hangar is a special place to say the least! It's a beautiful little ballpark with all of the amenities of a large stadium including sky boxes. This is the home of the Lancaster Jethawks of the California league. The caliber of play here is excellent and there's not a bad seat in the house. There's even area's designated for children and a team store. All of this is and more for an average of $9 per person!

We took the tour and were shown all of the animals and given a little information about each. We were also allowed to pet them and feed a few of them. They had camels, reindeer, pigs, horses, and many other types of animals. If was a lot of fun and I would definitely recommend it.

Reviewed By Lora C

This is a nice place for all ages and life style. There great little places to eat. Lots of different and good food. Theater. Antique stores to find that special something. Farmers market with the best fruit and veggie's. Love it. At night they have bands outdoors. But don't forget if you just want a treat the candy shop, coffee and ice cream. For those who love museums there is one. Very nice lots to se and do for a day or night out. Check if it's the small race car time of year. They block off some roads but you can find parking.
Christmas is very nice. Do check on the happenings. Before you plan your trip.

This is a nice park. Good for walking, bike riding, skating or having a picnic. Away from the noise of the city and anything city like. The only down side is the drive to get there. It's a good distance away and the only "services" around are bathrooms.

Lancaster Performing Arts Center

Reviewed By mini - Fremont, California

We enjoyed going to the Portraits of America Concert with Goerge Bugatti and his group. It was the opening show for the 2016-17 Season for the Antelope Valley Community Concerts Association. We purchased our tickets on line.

The theater is very nice with comfortable seating. There is also a snack bar that sells wine and beer.

The show featured the famous songs from cities around the United States. It was accompanied with stellar photographs and some videos of the cities. There was also some interesting information about the composers, original singers, and interesting facts about each city.

It was a great night with a tour of America through song. Songs included such songs as Wichita Lineman (accompanied with interesting photos of Kansas lineman and their training program); Walking in Memphis, Left My Heart in San Franisco, New York New York, NY State of MInd, Carolina in the Morning.

and Route 66, By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Galveston, Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans; Stars Fell on Alabama; Georgia, WKRP, Chicago - My Kind of Town, Jump Shout Boogie, Moonlight in Vermont, Weekend Iin New England, Arthur's Theme, Blue Hawaii, Here's to Las Vegas, America Stand up, Oh When the Saints Go Marching In.

George Bugatti is a talented singer, pianist and performer. He has been a featured performer in Las Vegas at the Bellagio Resort. He also has starred in shows in New York City.

The Lancaster Performing Arts Center is a very nice theater and has many events throughout the year.

Museum of Art & History (MOAH)

Reviewed By SoCalRambler - Tujunga, CA

High culture in the high desert: MOAH boasts some amazing, trendy modern artists in their exhibits, along with somewhat lesser-known people and locals. Lately we've seen work by "desert queen" Kim Stringfellow, Jeffrey Vallance (love!) and others. Free admission (donations accepted), lots of free parking right outside and around the corner, dining in the same block. Recommend also visiting the Western Hotel Museum a block east on days when it's open. Also recommend taking the Metrolink ($10 day pass on a Saturday) to save driving if you're coming from LA; the station is a couple of long blocks from the museums.
