Stuck in the Middle With You
Bakersfield is set right in the centre of Los Angeles and Fresno, and is currently one of the fastest growing areas in the United States.

Bring Your Car to Bakersfield
The city of Bakersfield is growing fast, and that means that infrastructure has a long way to go to catch up to population. If you bring your car to Bakersfield, though, you'll have the freedom of the entire city, as well as the option to travel to Fresno or LA for anything you need.
If you put your walking legs on, you have just over half a mile to go to get to most grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops around Bakersfield Community College. Gyms are all sadly more than a mile and a half away - by the time you get there you won't need it!

Bakersfield Brunches and Beers
You'll want to hop in your wheels (and make sure you have a designated driver) to get to most of the nightspots around Bakersfield. For a quick hit after school, Amestoy's Frank Bar is only a block or two away from Bakersfield College and is very well priced. Charly's is close also, and the Red Pepper Cocktail Lounge is great for a more upmarket night on the town.
Sandrini's and Guthrie Alley Cat are in the center of town, and popular with students.
You have two Chinese cuisine options close to school if you are looking for something to fill your belly - otherwise you'll need to head right into town
