Source: 2000 Census
Halfway between Los Angeles and Fresno is located Bakersfield, California. With a population of over a quarter of a million people, it is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Its location in the San Joaquin Valley makes it a city of sunshine so it isn't surprising that it has long been a big agricultural center. The growing season is long, the skies sunny and it enjoys a unique climate.
When looking for your Bakersfield apartment, know that the skyline is low and you won't find towering high rises. Expect shady streets and a central area that is a walker's paradise. Transportation to other areas will require a car but for many, day to day activities can be accomplished on foot or by bicycle.
11,00 Acres of Parkland
Bakersfield maintains over 11,000 acres of parks so there are plenty of outdoor activities and attractions. Off road vehicles are very popular and you'll see plenty of rallies and festivals around them. White water rafting, great hiking and biking and golf are also very accessible. The Kern County Museum as well as a children's museum are both good places to learn more about the area.
Basque in It!
Many of Bakersfield's best and oldest restaurants are Basque. Places like Woolgrower's, Maitia's, Noriega's, and Sanrini's should not be overlooked. Basque cuisine is unique and Bakersfield may have the largest concentration anywhere. Other international cuisines are also readily available from fine French to Thai, Chinese and Japanese, and if plain old American is your favorite, then the Prime Cut is great for steaks and burgers. Once in your Bakersfield apartment, you will start to explore all the fine restaurants this city has to offer.
Big Country Music Scene
Buck Owen's Crystal Palace is a first rate dining and music venue if you like country music, and gauging from the crowds there, many people do. If really casual is what you yearn for then the Mint Bar is the place. A great dive bar with friendly patrons. Sandrini's is one of the places that mixes Basque food with great live music and a bar scene. Bakersfield is large enough that there's something for everyone, and like most people, once in your Bakersfield apartment, you'll want to source the ones closest to home.
