Bakersfield is geographically situated at the southern end of the San Joaquin Rivera. It has been a site to many generations of the Native Americans that roamed the area, as in1951, the remains of the first Native Americans were first found. Best known to be the stopover of travelers going between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Bakersfield offers a healthy job market and an inexpensive place to start or raise a family. Because of its inexpensive community, the area has also been picking up business because of its southern California access. It has continuously been improving over the years. Bakersfield has become a haven for residents who are looking for houses. The rent and housing prices cost less than in Los Angeles, which resulted in some of the Los Angeles workforce opting to transfer and live in the city. It has been home to a multigenerational and multicultural population. Its diversity can be seen through a wide variety of small mom-and-pop shops selling international goodies and foods.
