Ridgecrest is situated in the Indian Wells Valley between the high country of the Sierra Nevada range and the deep desert of Death Valley. Within an hour's drive--through some of the West's most beautiful country--are great sailing, skiing, hiking, fishing, hunting, and every other outdoor pastime; the Valley is within 2 hours of the highest and the lowest points in the continental U.S. The air is clear, and sunny days are the rule.
The city of Ridgecrest is a largely "company" oriented community big enough to provide plenty of fine schools (public and private), shopping (including large chain stores), churches, health care, and recreation but still small enough to avoid most of the usual big-city problems.A wide variety of excellent housing is readily available at reasonable prices, and you can live only minutes from your office
