The City of Bakersfield, California

Our Guide to the City of Bakersfield, California


Bakersfield, CAAs the seat of Kern County, the City of Bakersfield, California owes its lineage to the California Gold Rush of the mid-1800’s. Even today, Bakersfield is known for its rich oil deposits and top of the line petroleum refineries, which provides an abundance of materials for nearby Silicon Valley and local aerospace programs. Bakersfield also boasts a lush farming industry which may or may not have inspired Bakersfield residents to invent the popular Country Music genre known as Bakersfield sound.

Located at the southern end of San Joaquin Valley, Bakersfield skirts the southern edge of the mighty Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, which provides naturally beautiful hiking and biking trails for all ages. If swimming is more your style, Bakersfield and the Kern River offer ample opportunity to enjoy a thrilling bout of white water rafting or whizz down a water slide at the McMurtrey Aquatic Center. For those looking to enjoy the city proper, there’s plenty of museums, eateries, and festivals that the whole family can enjoy!
