My family and I will be staying in a Time Share we swapped Branson for up in the Tehachapi Area. Besides the Edward Airforce Base flight museum what are some interesting places to visit in that area - including the adjacent Santa Clarita Valley? I'd even include the San F. Valley as well as Bakersfield.

Thanks for your suggestions, local folks!

I didn't know Edwards was in the Tehachapi area, I thought it was in the Mojave Desert.

If I was staying there, the things I would want to check out would be the penny bar in McKittrick.

See a Penny, Pick It Up and ‘Honey, Get the Glue!’ - New York Times

Bakersfield was also the home of the Bakersfield Sound country music movement in the 50's and 60's and there is still quite a bit of history regarding that in the area.

If you are intrested in that you might want to check out the Buck Owen's Crystal Palace. He was still playing their every week until he died. The venue is a pretty neat place.

If you are a train nut, you also might want to check out the Tehachapi Train Loop.

In Santa Clarita, you might want to check out the Star Trek Gorn Battle Rocks.

It's a mere 35 miles East of Tehachapi.... in the Mojave Desert.
