I live here it's a great place to be. Close to the Sierra Nevada mountains, rivers, sequoias, and good people.

Bakersfield gets a lot of slack, but since I've been living here I've met many great friends. Sure it has some downs, but every city does. Great thing about Bakersfield is that it's in the middle of Cali so nothing is ever truly that far. Beach is 2 hours away, LA is 1 hour.

Bakersfield is one of the pass through towns on the 5. It can get really hot and dry in the middle of California. It's nice enough for a pit stop though.

Bakersfield is my birthplace! I can't say much about Bakersfield other than it is a city in California that doesn't have a beach, wine country, or redwoods...meaning there isn't much you really need to see here.
