The Attractions of Bakersfield

15 Apr


            According to many people, Bakersfield is boring and there’s hardly nothing to do. Bakersfield is known for a place that does not have as much entertainment as other particular cities; however, it all depends on everyone’s own perspectives.

Bakersfield itself is a small town, but even in the smallest town there is always something to do. There might not be as much entertainment, but I believe that there are some entertaining places in this town whether is to go out and eat, dance, shop, etc.

Believe it or not, there’s a lot you can do in Bakersfield!

In many cases, it depends with what people you surround yourself with. For example, when my friends and I go out, anywhere we go, we make the most fun out of it.

It might not be a big city like Los Angeles, but there are always things to do in this town.

Marie Fonseca, 22, a junior from California State University, Bakersfield, said “I usually check on the newspaper and I always see new events, festivals, concerts, plays, etc. Maybe people don’t quite check because it doesn’t appeal to them, but there is a lot to do in Bakersfield.”

Usually is the young adult age group that says that Bakersfield is boring and “lame”, but there are so many fun places to go to especially in Downtown.

            Bakersfield might be as exciting as big and popular cities such as: Los Angeles or San Diego, but it is sure a way more exciting place than any other smaller

towns. Many people from smaller towns such as: Wasco, Shafter, Arvin, Taft, come to Bakersfield for more entertainment.

Bakersfield is definitely not a boring place because if you are with people you like to be surrounded with, anywhere you go can be as exciting!

    The Bakersfield Californian newspaper is indeed a trove of things to do, especially its Thursday Eye Street section. Any day of the week, you can also go to their website at for a complete calendar of community events.
