Start off your visit on the 22nd (Mon): relax in the rural setting at Tangleweed Farm, see the interesting displays at Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum, then steep yourself in history at Tehachapi Loop, and finally relax in the rural setting at Murray Family Farms, The Big Red Barn. Here are some ideas for day two: look for gifts at California Fruit Depot, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at California Area Living Museum (CALM), then take an in-depth tour of Kern County Museum, and finally see the interesting displays at Buck Owens' Crystal Palace.
