Bakersfield Travel Guide
Welcome to Bakersfield, CA!
The city of Bakersfield is known for its wealth of recreational and artistic attractions, giving the city a comfortable balance that makes for a desirable travel destination. Twenty miles (32 km) of pathway follows the Kern River through the city, providing an opportunity for walking, biking and rollerblading along the riverbanks. The path begins near the California Living Museum, a zoo that features a host of native flora and fauna, and ends near Cal State Bakersfield, the local post-secondary school. After a day of outdoor activity, try a night out at Buck Owen's Crystal Palace Steakhouse, a country and western museum, restaurant and performing arts center all rolled into one. There are also several antique shows that make their way to the city throughout the year and help to showcase the popular antique shopping district that is located in the heart of downtown Bakersfield.
The California Living Museum, or CALM, is located in Bakersfield and focuses on plant and animal life that is native to California.
