Review Bear Valley Springs
I love this place. Lots to do if you are active and adventurous. It's a small town so a lot of businesses close early during the week and even on the weekends. There are not very many work opportunities for twenty-somethings like myself but if you can get into one of the local industries, and are looking for a nice place to raise your children or retire. It is easily one of the most beautiful places in Kern County.
The police are definitely visible but there is some debate over their necessity. Crime is not high in this area and the cops have been known to give tickets for going slightly over the speed limit or waiting to bust drunk drivers outside of the local country club. But, working at the country club for many years, it was a luxury to have them at close call if an unruly situation did arise.
The stores in Tehachapi are owned by friendly people, mostly family owned. Love shopping in the local stores.
