What travelers to Bakersfield are saying

This was just an overnight room in Bakersfield because I was flying out so early (5:45 am) the next morning to the East coast. I gathered from locals I spoke with that this is a hangout for truckers, women available for the evening and drugs ... and lots of activity that picks up as the night goes on. Honestly, I didn't go near the place ... but at 81 I'm careful where I am. I'm not upset about the $ (it would be nice to get it back) but the error was mine and I accept that. Lesson learned .... next time if I need a room close to the airport, I'll check with #2 daughter first!

For a big town there wasn't much to do here. We visited the Outlet Mall, which was much like any other outlet mall. And we visited Silver City Ghost Town at Lake Isabella. It was cute, but not worth the drive unless you happen to be going to Lake Isabella or you just like driving winding mountain roads.
