"OLD WEST CHARM" Top 5 Page for this destination Tehachapi by ViajesdelMundo

Tehachapi Travel Guide: 112 reviews and 429 photos


See the 'Travelogue' below for many more of the murals around town, which depict a lot of the local history.

This one shows the plane used in the first US MAIL flight from Tehachapi to Bakersfield, May 19, 1938!


On our way driving north to visit friends in the Yosemite area, we made plans to stop overnight to meet 'YAQUI'/Dee, who very graciously took the time to spend the evening with us and show us around this great town!

It is so full of history which has been lovingly, and well preserved. A full weekend or more could easily be spent here, enjoying the old west ambience.

and there is a better photo of us on YAQUI's page at http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/tt/b3d3d/#TL

also see her Tehachapi page, which is chock-full of items!! http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/5fcc8/b89cf/
