I suppose I could write a Top 10 list or a Top 5 list about life here in Bakersfield, but let’s just get started with these Top 9. We’ll consider this a Part 1 because there’s soooo much more to life here in the heart of California that cannot be covered in a Top Whatever list. 🙂
Let’s start with my favorite: Houses!
Homeownership for first-time homebuyers, new construction all the way to 55+ Active Adult communities, here in Bakersfield, are all still affordable! It’s no joke! (If you’d like to see what that looks like for your personal situation, feel free to comment below)
A 2017 article from the National Association of Realtors has confirmed that, yep, Bakersfield, is rated one of the top places for Millennials to move and purchase a home. Yeeesss!!
What to do and where to go?
A road trip of less than 2 hours will get you to the mountains, LA/Orange County, (Hollywood & Disneyland) the Pacific Ocean and beaches. Some of our great National Parks are easily visited when you live here. Not a lot of traffic to get out of town for the day. It’s called the ‘Central Valley’ for a reason: we’re centrally located to all good things!

We’re hitting the Millennial Radar!
In a separate and distinct article from FOX Business about Millennials and where they’re moving, Bakersfield comes up AGAIN! Holla! Check it out! ⤵️⤵️
Did you know???
As well as, McMoo Farms Dairy, Robinson Calf Ranch and many other lesser-known suppliers that are still just as vital to the dairy and cattle industries. Production of all kinds happens here.
The career track
The new kid in town.
In addition to all of those big companies running their show locally, Amazon is building one of their distribution centers here in town. It should be open before the end of this year. It will bring hundreds of jobs now and after it’s completely built, as well as all of the auxiliary companies that will feed off of it.
Is it what you expected?
Honestly, the general population really has very little idea what happens here in Bakersfield. We have country music royalty, NASA history in our backyard, household names and lots of growth!
It’s no wonder our sweet little town is starting to pop up on everyone’s radar on a Nationwide basis! I look forward to hearing from you if moving to Bakersfield is in your future for 2019!
