What travelers to Bakersfield are saying

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.
