It’s worth remembering that Antelope Valley has been settled for thousands of years, and at the Indian Museum you’ll get an insight into the area’s rich anthropology. The museum dates to 1928 when it was set up by a self-sufficient farmer and artist called H. Arden Edwards who made a homestead here. Exhibits include ceramics and textiles to give a glimpse of the norms and lifestyles of both aboriginal and present-day Native American groups. At Joshua Cottage you can see how Native Americans started fires or processed grains for meals.

Take the CA SR-14 South for 40 minutes or so to reach one of the best family days out in Southern California. Six Flags Magic Mountain is flagship for the Six Flags brand, and is suitably impressive, packing 19 roller coasters into its 260 acres. That is more roller coasters than any other amusement park in the world, and the great thing is that they’re always adding more. Five have been unveiled since 2011, among them Full Throttle, which has the world’s largest vertical loop at 49 metres. It’s not all white-knuckle of course; the High Sierra Territory is a Looney Tunes-themed area for young ones, while Rapids Camp Crossing simulates an adventure into the American backcountry.
