For those who were not part of the baby boomers era, during WWII, many communities near Army Airfields would be granted funds from the federal government to build local USO building to support their troops. So Imogene Garner Hook started of a drive to raise local funds for their own USO building in Victorville. After President Franklin Delano...more
From the first gate, go counter clockwise past the war memorial and look for the stairs, she is just to the left of them on the other side of the brick wall. Pay your respects.She was known as "Indian Marie", who lived in Victorville on 10th Street between "C" & "D" where she establishing squatter's rights and lived in shack that had been used for...more
Victor Valley Memorial is one of the first cemeteries in the Victory Valley in 1916 and use to be located by the Senior Citizen's Center on Mojave & Victor Street. It had to be moved since it was out growing its former site and moved to the old gravel pit site at 11th & "C" Streets. All the graves were moved to its new site. I just hope they didn't...more
St. Joan of Arc Church, Victorville, was founded as a mission of Barstow in 1922. In 1927 the parish received its first pastor, Fr. Beary. Thirteen pastors and many other priests have since served the congregation. I was drawn to its lovely architecture and have found places like these are the pillars of their communities.more
Originally built on E Street, this was "opened for business" in 1907 by Constable Ed Dolch. It had no heat or running water so being put in this hoosegow was real punishment. Yet, if that didn't make anyone staying on the straight and narrow, then you might be sent to work draining the swamps.more

This "southern" restaurant is a great informal place with good food to take the family. You are greeted with a small "bottomless" bucket of peanuts on the table to snack on while waiting. Just throw the shells on the floor... The food is good, the service was friendly and atttentive. Endless "fixins" / side dish refills for those people who can...more
This place is great! The waiter is very nice and the guy that prepares the sushi is also very nice. You can sit at the bar and talk to him while watching T.V. (usually on sports) or you can sit at a table and watch a T.V. in the corner. The place isn't that big but has a great atmosphere. The Vegas Roll! OMG this roll is awesome it is alittle of...more
If you are looking for a good deal on great steaks, then this is the place to go. I've been to a number of outlets across the country and have never been letdown. Once you decide what you want, your entree comes with a garden salad as well as bread & butter. I selected the Outback Style Prime Rib (a tempting 12-ounce cut, oven roasted slowly then...more
Red Robin is a place that’s cool enough for teenagers, hip enough for adults and tasty enough for even the most discriminating of palates. Try the Sautéed Mushroom Burger (this burger is topped with a generous heap of fresh, plump sautéed mushrooms, then topped with melted Swiss...a mushroom lover’s dream come true!!!)more
Excellent Korean food where you can cook everything right at your table on the hibachi. Well it's a buffet type establishment with Korean and Chinese food available. You can pick from seafood (shrimp, bass, clams, etc.) to chicken, pork, turkey and beef. Top that off with vegetables, kimchee, and rice and other things, you are good to go. And I...more
Located on the corner of D Street and 7th Street, at 16838 D st. Victorville, Ca.
It serves as a transportation center for the bus services and Amtrak. You will have to look at local schedules to see what is the latest.

Odd to put this entry in Off the Beaten Track for a town known for not much more than a cowboy museum.
But do visit the Burlesque Museum - I guarantee you've never seen anything like it. Extensive, fun, historical - what more could you want?
The best time to go seems to be around the annual Miss Exotic World pagaent, but resident Dixie Evans is always happy to show you around the museum and spin tales of this bygone era any time of the year.

Call for directions, it's a bit tricky. Waaaay off the I-15. If you play it right, though, you can get off the exit, visit to the museum, go north and end up farther up on the 15 near Barstow on your way to Vegas. Or vice versa if you're going to LA.
Brownie was a stray that wondered into the station bruised and bleeding from being hit by a car. He was given some well needed love by the telegraph operator and soon found himself a home at the station. He greeted all those who passed through the station. He was fed regular by everyone who brought him scraps from home. They even paid for a vet...more
Actually, I visited Victorville, shopped, but I lived in Hesperia. Victorville is fine. There isn't much to it except this little Italian place which has huge Pizza's called Valentino's. You must see Hesperia Lake though, it's a cute little park and has fishing. I think my fondest memory of Victorville would be the little shops. I love to shop and...more
