Visit Bakersfield

The Southern Gateway to the Central Valley, Bakersfield is the birthplace of the country music genre known worldwide as the Bakersfield Sound. Bakersfield is also home to more Basque eateries than any other city in the nation. A short drive from the city puts visitors in the Southern Sierra Nevada where one can experience top-rated whitewater rafting, fly-fishing and hiking.
