    description:
    nickname: Bako or B-town
    The southern gateway to the Central (San Joaquin) Valley, where a good percentage of our food is grown in the U.S. Driving northbound on Interstate 5, Tejon Ranch welcomes you to Kern County & then Bako is off in the distance, via Hwy 99. Take Interstate 5 to the west and you will totally bypass the city of Bakersfield. The city has a rapid growth rate on population, but be warned: you'll need air conditioning to survive the summers.
