A wealth of recreation, art and cultural experiences can be found in the city and surrounding communities. On any given day you'll find both residents and visitors heading to local ball fields, soccer fields, golf courses, tennis courts, hiking and biking trails, lakes, and racetracks. Others will spend their days visiting museums and galleries, exploring new vistas or searching for that special gift in the area's unique stores, boutiques, and antique shops. From Buck Owens's Crystal Palace to the Kern River, Bakersfield is sure to have what you're looking for.
Tucked in the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley, we are just minutes away from the recreational paradise known as the Kern River Valley and white water rafting on the raging Kern River. The Sequoia National Forest, home of the Giant Sequoias, is a short drive away. If golf or tennis is your type of adventure, visit one of seven Kern County public or semi-private golf courses or three semi-private tennis clubs. If you prefer the thrills of a world-class amusement park, you can scream your lungs out atop one of the world's highest roller coasters at the world famous Six Flags Magic Mountain, just an hour's drive away!
