Salida is a quaint quiet commuter town that finds it roots in the railroad industry. Once the town began to grow out of being a freight train depot, it began to expand as a commuter town for those who work in the Bay Area. Rich in Hispanic culture, Salida has a yearly festival celebrating its culture. In addition to such festivities Salida has many outreach programs to benefit those struggling to stay afloat in a society that struggles to balance economic stability. Salida could use an upgrade in structural repair. It would be an element that would bring a classy look to this cute town and would bring a sense of community spirit to the residents.

Small community but very friendly and kind we are always having a block party! Everything is walking distance like a liquor store, family market and a cute little break bakery.
It’s a beautiful and Quiet place to raise a family! I’ve lived in Salida for four years and it’s peaceful and welcoming.
