Salinas is the capital of the Salinas Valley, which has long been known as "The Salad Bowl of the World" for its fresh produce, and which is also renowned for its flowers and vineyards. More recently, the region is emerging as a world hub of agricultural technology or agtech.
Salinas is a community of neighborhoods with a wide variety of housing options. With Victorians and the historic Spanish influence, Salinas provides renters and homebuyers a housing assortment, from modest cottages and modern townhouses to spacious "rancheros" nestled in the oak-dotted countryside.
The Salinas City Center is also the hub of the Salinas shopping scene, featuring unique boutiques and a number of art galleries. These establishments stay open late on the first Friday of every month for the Salinas First Fridays Art Walk, a celebration of the city's up-and-coming arts scene. Monterey County's largest shopping center, the Northridge Mall, is also located in Salinas. Featuring over 130 shops and restaurants, as well as a 14-screen movie theater, this Salinas mall is the home of many national chains.
