Salinas Vacations

Sometimes called the "Salad Bowl of the World," Salinas is certainly famous for its produce. However, this coastal California town has more to offer than leafy greens. This little city has a great mix of history, culture, and friendly folks who can't wait to show it off to people on Salinas vacations.

Major Attractions

Restaurants, antique stores, and Salinas hotels line the streets of old town. This is where you'll find the boyhood home of Nobel Prize-winning author John Steinbeck, who wrote "The Grapes of Wrath" and other books. Salinas is also home to the National Steinbeck Center. During your Salinas vacation, you'll find the Jose Estubio Boronda Adobe, a state landmark of Spanish California, as well as the Monterey and Salinas Valley Railroad Museum located next door to an Art Deco-style rail station. The free Medical History Museum offers a fascinating look at the history of medicine—and its future. Car rentals in Salinas give you access to nearby Monterey and Carmel, where you'll discover beautiful beaches and marine wildlife. You can also hit the hip River Road Wine Trail, which follows the Salinas River and takes you to various winery tasting rooms.

Recurring Festivals and Events

Plan your trip around annual festivals in the town and its surroundings. In July, the California Rodeo Salinas comes to town for four days of classic Western fun. Another event, the California International Airshow, benefits local charities so you can feel good about attending. Remember to book Salinas vacation packages in advance if you want to come to town during these popular times. Other recurring events include Open Streets—designated days where streets are temporarily closed to motorized vehicles and people are encouraged to share the streets for walking, cycling, and other healthy modes of transportation.
