Meadows Field Airport

Bakersfield, California, United States

Airport #76 of 100 · First visited 24 April 2017

When heading out to the Antelope Valley of California, the usual way to get there is to fly into one of the many Los Angeles area airports (like LAX, BUR, or ONT) and drive north into the desert.

To avoid L.A. traffic on one of my trips, I decided to stay out of the L.A. area entirely. I found a good price into Bakersfield instead, and drove over from there.
