  • Joan of Arch Catholic Church 1922

    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.

  • 1907 Jail~

    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.

  • The Turner House 1880

    This is not on the walking tour, but it had the signature sign of being a historical point of interest of Victorville. About the only information I have found it was built by pioneer John Turner in 1880 and has been totally restored by a local dentist for their business.

  • Famous for ribs

    Great place to kick back and have lots of fun, plus they serve huge portions of food. Try the Red Hot Buffalo Wings which is a generous helping of spicy, hot chicken wings and served alongside fresh celery sticks and creamy Bleu Cheese dressing for dipping.

  • Do not miss this one...

    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...

  • G'day Mate

    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...

    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!!!)

Victorville Off The Beaten Path

  • emilesc's Profile Photo

    by emilesc Written May 21, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    29053 Wild Road, Helendale, CA 92342

    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...

  • Actually, I visited...

    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...
