"Town of Salinas, California" Monterey Favorite Tip by meteorologist1

Monterey General: 67 reviews and 161 photos

  Salinas, California
by meteorologist1

Fondest memory: Visit the town of Salinas, which is just east of Monterey via California Highway 68. This town is the birthplace of famous Nobel Prize winning author John Steinbeck. Here you can visit the National Steinbeck Center, which offers a look at the life and works of John Steinbeck. If you are into his books, this place should not be missed if you are coming to the Monterey area.
