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.
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.
