    Oh man... Bakersfield is where I stop between trips to and from Northern and Southern California. It's hot, very, very hot in the summer.

    POSITIVE: the drug test kits of about 3/4 of the stash cops confiscate out there

    POSITIVE: the abundance of Mexican food joints out there...

    I used to work in Bakersfield a few years ago. I live about 50 miles North from there....

    Be prepared for dense fog in the winter and DRY HEAT in the summer!..and no snow :rolleyes:

    There was a lot of new development going on (Lowe's/Target/Kohls..etc.) and some new home building but that has pretty much slowed down. It will have all the shopping you need.

    It's been a couple years but I remember the good areas were the Southwest and Rosedale. Stay away from the Oildale area (from what I have heard). Pretty much any area west of Highway 99 would be a decent place to live.

    Not too sure about bars, only went to one and I don't remember the name. I remember there was a few bars in the downtown area. I went to a few concert's at Jerry's Pizza and The Dome. I have been to the mall and it's okay.

    There is also a pretty popular drag strip about 10 miles north of Bakersfield called Famoso Raceway.

    If you like drag racing, Famoso is pretty cool, and has a NHRA national event.

    I lived in Bako for 2 years until I joined the Navy. I don't know what you're into but there's a lot of outdoor activities. Running at the Riverwalk, hiking in Hart Park, tubing through the Kern River, and many more. One of my favorite things to do in the summer was driving to Lake Isabella and stopping halfway in the Kern Canyon to take a break from the heat.

    B town is a nice place to live over all it's a small city but has tons of stuff to do outdoors and some indoors as well. Why are you moving here anyhow??? we're about an1-2hrs from just about everywhere 3-4hrs from all the big city’s like Vegas/sac/Frisco/Diego, but back to 2hrs from place like LA/Fresno/ Ventura/ Pismo, and so on... As for bars our down town has a few the girls out here are like any other place you have your good, your bad, your hot ones , you’re not so hot :0) it's hot when hot and cold when cold.... easiest way to put it is you'll love it or hate it right of the back
