With people considering road trips as a safe way to travel, the new Southern Trails Auto Tours brochure provides exciting and historic routes to explore cities across the Southwest, including Bakersfield.
Bakersfield is located on the historic Butterfield Overland Trail, created in the 1850’s as a year-round all-weather trail to assist the U.S. Post Office with mail delivery. The trail started in Tipton, Missouri and passed through what is today Bakersfield on the way to San Francisco.
The arrival of this brochure fits perfectly with recent changes in the travel market, said Visit Bakersfield Manager David Lyman. “Travelers are looking for ways to safely experience summer, and car and RV travel allows families to discover new destinations,” he said. “This new auto tours brochure highlights some of the many reasons to visit Bakersfield, and offers a unique historical angle that many people did not know about.”
