Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Victorville,
the Mountain View Acres neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Mountain View Acres neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.3% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.

Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Mountain View Acres neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
9.0% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.4%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Mountain View Acres neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.2%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 95.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 95.8% of all American neighborhoods.
