Bakersfield: Home To Unique Traditions in Food and Music

Bakersfield is perhaps best known as the birthplace of the "Bakersfield Sound", a music style that was introduced by such legendary artists as Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. At the Bakersfield Country Music Museum, the full and rich history of the music is on display. Another unique city tradition is Basque restaurants. A trip here is not complete without a visit to one of these traditional family style restaurants. Food is hearty, simple, and outstanding, and the Basque atmosphere is just as good."
