Our family stay at Bakersfield California

I recently visited Bakersfield California, I was sent there on a business trip and decide to take my family along and make it a vacation, since we would be saving on one airplane ticket. The company had arranged the hotel, Marriot Bakersfield at the Convention Center. This was also major savings, since I only upgraded to a bigger suite to accommodate us all. We were picked up at the airport by a friendly Marriot driver who told us the ins and outs of Bakersfield. So after 2 days of meetings and forums we were delighted to be in this city, the weather was perfect. We ventured to get some breakfast at Cope's Knotty Pine Café, where the only downside was the crowd. Once we were seated and served I had nothing bad on my plate, the food is out of this world. You must try their steak and eggs, or their biscuits and gravy. After such delicious breakfast we went out for a walk, called Park at Riverwalk, has great trails for walking and riding your bikes, a very large lake, and I was impressed at how dog friendly this park was, it had doggy stations everywhere we looked. Decided to window shop in Bakersfield. So after the girls made some candy purchases from Dewar's Candy and Ice cream parlor, might I add the chocolate soft ice cream hubby and I had was really rich and hit the spot. We went to downtown Bakersfield and Rosedale where we found little quaint boutiques offering high-end designer clothing. At night we hit the town just hubby and I for a nice dinner date. At TL Maxwell's; we were not disappointed, very intimate, with great wine selection to go with our steaks.
