Welcome to Bakersfield, California!

The Southern Gateway to the Central Valley, Bakersfield is the 9th largest city in California and one of the fastest growing regions in the nation. Steeped in music history, the city is the birthplace of the country music genre known worldwide as the Bakersfield Sound. Bakersfield is the seat of Kern County, which generates 76 percent of the state's oil supply and ranks third among all counties in the United States in agriculture-related production. From award-winning museum exhibits to  a variety of  regional attractions, Bakersfield has something to do for everyone!

Bakersfield also boasts an impressive collection of locally-owned, authentic restaurants including more Basque eateries than any other city in the nation. A short drive from the city puts visitors in the Southern Sierra Nevada Mountains where one can experience top-rated whitewater rafting, fly-fishing and hiking.
