"Salinas" Salinas by Shaft28

Salinas Travel Guide: 36 reviews and 133 photos

Salinas is a large farming community just south of Gilroy & San Jose. Not a ton to do, but there is some amazing Mexican food served here.
I used to drive through on trips to Southern California to visit friends.
Never a real spot to stop for any amount of time. Would be a good place to raise a family if you like a small town feel in a relatively remote big city.

    Loved the picture of Lettuce Nuts. 5-star tip all the way! In fact...I'm gonna drive over there this afternoon and see if I can't track down old Mr. Nuts.

    That's hilarious; wonder if it's still there... Any idea what road it's on?
