Sitting at the edge of the southwestern Mojave Desert, Victorville is an unsung historical and environmental treasure. At its onset, the town flourished as a fertile gem within the high deserts of California. Later, Victorville gained even more value as the manufacturing center it is known as today, distinguished by its rich deposits of limestone and granite. Once a bustling stop on the meandering Route 66, Victorville today is reminiscent of this once-renowned road. Victorville hotels put you in the center of this classic ambiance and close to the rugged landscapes the town treasures.
Out and About in Victorville
While staying in hotels in Victorville CA, the Mojave Desert is your playground. Seek out the non-prehistoric petroglyphs carved into the area's rocks, or take I-15 just north of Victorville and exit on Wild Wash Road, where you'll stumble upon a genuine ghost town in less than three miles. Marvel at Wildwash's stark rock houses and abandoned mines, then move from the past to the future. To witness desert innovation and sustainable design at its finest, head to the California Institute of Earth Art and Architecture in neighboring Hesperia. If you tire of the dry, head to nearby Spring Valley Lake and Mojave Narrows Regional Park for a change of scenery. A lush Eden in the desert, the park's greenery is home to over a thousand species of wildlife. Back in town, get a taste of what Victorville was like in its heyday at the Route 66 Museum on D Street.
