Head north on Interstate 15 outside of San Bernardino in Southern California and you will run into the charming city of Adelanto. Dubbed a "city of unlimited possibilities," many residents are attracted to Adelanto because of its bright future. Full of scenic landscapes, bustling with residential and commercial improvement, it is no surprise that so many people are calling Adelanto apartments for rent their new home. According to City-Data, the city has seen an astonishing 75 percent increase in population from 2000 to 2010, showing that this city is a place that many people in California want to be part of.
Adelanto was founded in 1915 after E.H. Richardson, the inventor of the Hotpoint Electric Iron, purchased land in the area and made plans to develop a community for World World I veterans who were coming to the area for the clean air and beautiful weather. The city grew as an agricultural hub for orchards and groves, and the city was incorporated in the 1970s. Adelanto is one of San Bernardino Valley's smallest cities, so you can bet it is teeming with personality and charm.
Today, the city is home to more than 31,700 residents, according to 2010 information from the U.S. Census Bureau. It is clear that this is a family-friendly community, as more than 37 percent of the citizens here are 18 or younger. According to City-Data, you can also enjoy living in a community with neighbors from all walks of life, as it is an incredibly diverse area.
The Adelanto Mariachi Festival, also known as the "Musica del Alma," which takes place each summer, is one of the biggest events that celebrates the rich diversity of the area and charm of the community. Much of the proceeds for this festival goes to nonprofits that help veterans in the area, showing the philanthropic roots of the city.
