The community life in Ridgecrest is very unique. Old-fashioned family values, stress free lifestyle, highly educated people, and technological businesses make up Ridgecrest. The city is known for its safe neighborhoods, great schools, and beautiful skies.

Ridgecrest has two excellent full service gyms Anytime Fitness and InShape Fitness. There are also customized workout centers such as two Cross-fit gyms and Sierra Cycle Studio. NAWS China Lake offers a full gym to active duty & DOD. If you prefer the outdoors style workout take a walk or bike ride down the paved bike path running alongside Bowman Rd. Up near Cerro Coso Community College there are trails and nature walks, as well as throughout surrounding desert terrain. We have several parks to enjoy with your family too.

For entertainment ideas there is a bowling alley that can keep you busy whether it be on a league or just for fun. Ridgecrest Cinemas is a great place for the family to go and watch the newly released movies. Our Maturango Museum offers exhibits and events throughout the year.
 The China Lake Museum Foundation's museum shares the history of China Lake and its role in development of Naval Armament and Technology with Navy personnel, their contractors, and the public, and it nurtures curiosity in science and technology to youth through its rocket scientist program and other science programs
