I would give Bakersfield a chance. There are some really nice areas on the west side. Unless you want to go up in the mountains near Tehachapi. That is about the only place I would go in the area. That is about 45 minutes.

Well I would say somewhere where there is more to do for younger ppl (mid 20s). I mean there are so many negative reviews about living in bakersfield its causin some concern. I know the closest major city is LA which is 1.5 hrs/ so thats out of the question, but i was thinking somewhere that is closer to LA, (so south of bakersfield) close enough to bakersfield for like a 40-45 min commute.. Just wondering..

Also another question, what is the best part of town to live? (bakersfield).

South of Bakersfield is mostly farm land until you get to Santa Clarita, which is mostly homes with everybody commuting into LA. Long boring drive and not to be done on a daily basis. The new nicer homes are going in on the west side of town. I have family who live there, so I don't really look for places to buy or rent. However, I have seen some really nice places. Housing is fairly cheaper as far as CA standards are concerned.

Also south of Bakersfield is the mountain town of Fraizer Park near Gorman. Probably 45 to 55 minutes from Bakersfield on I-5. Have some friends who live there and they really enjoy it. At about 4,500 feet elevation. Only possibility is you could get snowed in once in awhile in the winter.
Before you make any decision you should give Bakersfield a look. It has grown a lot and there are some really nice housing developements southwest of town.

Travel Tips for Bakersfield

The Old Indian

by Yaqui

This statue was a symbol of Standard Jr. High for sometime. I surmise it was probably mascot for a local business around the 1930's and found a home at the school. Yet the school could not support it because they had built a new gym and regulations, and building codes could not support the statue anymore. So it sat in a storage yard for 17 years, until Ralph Rohlfing a local cowboy moved the Old Indian to his new home at his ranch and that is where he stood proudly for 47 years. He had to sell his ranch evenually and he made sure he would find the Old Indian another safe home. Now he stands on Alfred Harrel Hwy proudly again!

From the West Hwy 58, exit onto Mt. Vernon Ave and head east to you see Alfred Harrel Hwy, you will come to a small interchange make sure you cross over on the over pass to the other side and you will see a access road to the right, turn right.

Great Barbecue

by Yaqui about Logans's Roadhouse

This is another nice place. The food is great and so is the service. Locals like to come here and hang out having a beer or two at the bar or patio area. The d├ęcor is fun with painted western murals on the walls and a huge hint of NASCAR too. They serve peanuts as a snack and you can push the remnants onto the floor. They do not mind.

11am-10pm Sunday through Thursday
11am-11pm Friday and Saturday The high-quality, moderately-priced menu features over 30 entrees including aged steaks hand-cut fresh on premises, mesquite-grilled chicken, fresh ground steakburgers, baby-back ribs, seafood, and specialty salads made from only the freshest ingredients.http://www.logansroadhouse.com/all_about_us.aspx
