Community Information

Located at an elevation of 4,000 feet in the Tehachapi Mountains, the refreshing lifestyle of Tehachapi has made it the jewel of Kern County and a prime location for continued growth. With easy access to a variety of strong industries, Tehachapi continues to attract a well-educated and stable population with incomes higher than any other in our region.

Tehachapi is located outside of Southern California’s congested highly populated areas and outside of the drier hotter deserts and valleys surrounding it. Our higher elevation and mountain locale epitomizes outdoor living at its best. People here, whether resident or visitor relish their time spent outside enjoying the scenic beauty and all the recreational opportunities, extreme sports and wildlife the area has to offer. Tehachapi is known for having "Four Seasons" of the year, which is rare considering it's only 120 miles away from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Tehachapi is just 40 miles from Bakersfield and 45 miles from Lancaster.

But Tehachapi’s unique environment also means it’s located outside the mainstream and conventions of suburbia. It’s original. More unconventional attitude attracts people with fresh ideas and energy that manifest themselves in the arts, culture, traditions, technology and commercial innovations, and strong community spirit.

It’s about higher elevation. How the higher elevation is our competitive differentiator because we have clean air, four seasons, alternative energy, outdoor adventure, great agritourism… all because of our higher elevation. That's why we encourage people to "Live Up!"

Whether you're a visitor or a resident, you can find something to enjoy about Tehachapi.
