Renting a Cheap Apartment in Bakersfield

California’s Central Valley produces much of the produce for the state, and Bakersfield’s rural charm is one of its selling points. Proximity to the state’s beautiful Central Coast is a plus, and you can drive to beautiful beaches in Pismo Beach or Santa Barbara within several hours from Bakersfield. A state university with strong sports teams, warm desert-like weather, and easy access to Yosemite National Park, one of the most amazing places in California, are other highlights. Country music stars Merle Haggard and Buck Owens both called Bakersfield home, and so can you.
