"Winding your way down Baker St. No, it's not that one ..."
Baker st, to me, is typical of the "business routes" in Bakersfield. There's a lot of business to found along here and plenty of parking to go with it. My key interest, despite having clients along here, is Bakersfield Railway Station. Heading south, along Baker, you get a great view of the station as you cross the tracks. If you have a few minutes up your sleeve, park off Sumner and go check it out. Further North, there are some great examples of home owner pride. There are some very attractive structures, picket fences and a great community feel. The south is a little more commercial and home to more businesses.
