Main Street Salinas has about 10 blocks of well kept commercial activity, focusing upon restaurants, internet cafe's, banking, boutique shops of all sorts, high-end massage salons, and theaters. There are three active theaters-- the Maya Theater brings current Hollywood films, The Childrens Theater focuses upon live entertainment for Children, and the old Fox Theater has Spanish language productions. There's another theater downtown with a fine marquee sign that is closed. Downtown has wide sidewalks, well maintained planter boxes, and antique street lamps. Traffic is very courteous to pedestrians. Most of the architecture dates to the early 20th century, although a few notable examples date into the late 19th century.
