Tehachapi is located outside of Southern California’s congested highly populated areas and outside of the drier hotter deserts and valleys surrounding it. Tehachapi is like a breath of fresh air. 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.
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.
