What You’ll Enjoy in Bakersfield, California

Located roughly 100 miles northwest of the sprawling city of Los Angeles, Bakersfield is central to the Sequoia National Forest and the Panorama Vista Preserve. For weekend trips, explorers will find Yosemite National Park further north, wine country of Paso Robles to the west, and the many attractions of LA to the south, not to mention the numerous forests, parks, coastal views, and beaches in the surrounding areas. Bakersfield is a rapidly developing town thanks to a handful of colleges, boasting a population large enough to support an American League Hockey team, the Bakersfield Condors. Those who enjoy scenic vistas, summer and winter sports, and big city access (without big city costs) will love Bakersfield.
