Kern County, New Home Communities

Have you ever envied the Californian weather and yearned to live in the "Golden State?" If so then Kern County is unquestionably your best choice, so make it your new home today.

Named after the Kern River, which originates from Mount Whitney, Kern County is the third-largest county in California by size, extending beyond the Sierra Nevada range into the Mojave Desert on the northern end, and over the Tehachapi Mountains in the south. What this means is that residents enjoy outstanding hiking trails in a number of different terrains. Adventure seekers will appreciate that part of the arid Antelope Valley, Mojave Desert, and even the impressive Sequoia National Forest all cross paths with Kern County. Closer to the county seat of Bakersfield is Kern Canyon, a popular spot for fishing and white-water rafting. These activities grant you the Californian lifestyle you have always dreamed of.

Despite easy accessibility to these spots of wilderness, Kern County is extremely developed, and offers top living quality in the cities, thanks to the discovery of big oil fields that today accounts for one-tenth of the United State’s oil production. In addition to the mining industry, agriculture is also a prominent contributor to the economy of Kern County. As a result, Kern County is able to offer to residents the lowest sales tax in California.

If you want to explore the surrounding areas around Kern County, there are several state routes as well as Interstate 5 and U.S. Route 395. This means you are never too far from cities such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas or San Francisco.
