Good place to live?

Hey all,

In the very near future, I will be relocating from central Illinois to California to work at the new Caterpillar facility outside Arvin. When looking at potential towns within driving distance, Frazier Park caught my eye. Having grown up in a small town of 1200 people, I am trying to stay away from the bigger (big to me) towns, especially Bakersfield. Is Frazier Park a good place to live?

I like the fact that it's a small town and, coming from Illinois, I love the fact that it snows up there! I've heard the Interstate will also close if it snows too much......is this pretty common? Having spent my whole life in the middle of a cornfield, the mountains seem perfect to me....

If you guys have any thoughts as to whether or not Frazier Park may be a good fit, please let me know. Also, if there are other small towns which may be better, I'd be more than happy to take any suggestions!

Thanks!

Hey yes, welcome to the area. I have seen the Catepillar sign down at the bottom of the Grapevine. Congratulations on your new job. This is a great area, definitely try to get up in the hills here. Even Lebec at the freeway is nice and there are some very affordable homes. Frazier Park is a fun place, some rough characters, but lots of other good people, a few good restaurants and a the market. Great home prices. Lake of the woods and Lockwood valley are nice too.
Even if you wanted a bit higher elevation and more remote, Pine Mountain has it's charms too.
You will like it here if you stay out of the town gossip and politics, it's a beautiful place to live.
The I-5 might close a couple times a year, mostly it is open.
