Country star Buck Owens had one of his biggest hits with “The Streets of Bakersfield,” and he opened this music venue in its namesake city to celebrate the rock-meets-country musical style known as the Bakersfield Sound. Today, music fans come to Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace for the downhome food, music memorabilia, and modern-day star sightings. To complete your musical tour of Bakersfield, check out the historic Trout’s—then experience the Central Valley city’s other cool features, like its Basque cuisine and the Kern River.
