Easy Living - 12/4/2016
I am a disabled 77 year old woman living in a senior apartment. My daughter lives in Bakersfield and moved me here so I could be close to my daughter and my granddaughter and great granddaughters. I have been here two months now and I can't say enough good things about it. Yes, the local markets are very costly but Walmart and The 99 cent store are here so I don't think my groceries are any higher, gas is cheaper, as are my utilities. I am paying $50.00 more on rent. So now, with social security and a small spousal support I think I am saving money here. The people are wonderful. I will say it again for emphases the people are wonderful. I like it here very much.Read More

Mid-summer is over 95 degrees most days, with really terrible air pollution from both Bakersfield and crops in nearby fields. Plan on dusting your home frequently, but you can leave windows open year round, except for June, July, August which require air conditioning.

Cost of living is below national average, except for groceries. There is only one semi-large market, SaveMart. Fresh & Easy opened in 2010, but tends to be pretty pricey, although their quality is excellent. Prices are about 1/3 higher than normal. I drive into Bakersfield (22 miles) once a month to do major grocery shopping. There are many Latino markets and restaurants in town, 2 Chinese restaurants, and a couple of "American" (hamburgers, etc.), plus Read More
