Bakersfield, CA has country music and great outdoors

Once considered a backward hamlet with little or no urban culture, Bakersfield has undergone a stunning transformation in the past 20 years that includes such ecologically smart developments as The Park at Riverwalk, a 32-acre parcel along the Kern River. Rescued from urban development, The Park at Riverwalk is an oasis of meandering streams, small lakes and picnic areas. The crowning achievement of The Park is the Bright House Networks Amphitheatre, a public performance venue that brings in music, theater and community showcases.

Bakersfield is known as the Country Music Capital of the West. Legendary country artist Buck Owens, along with Merle Haggard and a couple of other country performers, defined a style of traditional country music that became known as the Bakersfield Sound.

You'll find Bakersfield-area adventures of the outdoor kind. The Kern River descends from the Sierras through the Sequoias through Lake Isabella and through Bakersfield. Several river-rafting outfitters offer tours from single-day family outings, to multiday camping adventures along some of the wildest rapids in California.

Along with the river adventures, outdoor lovers will find fishing along the river and area lakes plentiful, scenic and relaxing. The Bakersfield/Kern River basin is networked with hiking trails and campgrounds, from rustic to deluxe RV parks.
