Old Town Salinas

In one of our little excursions, B and I stumbled upon Old Town Salinas.   I felt like we had stepped back into the 40's.  The buildings are just beautiful. 
Salinas is the home to the National Steinbeck Center and host to many cultural and family friendly activities all year.  For example, they have an art walk the First Friday of every month.  For more info on events in Salinas click here

My daughter would fit in there. She always seems to me like she belongs in the 40's.

There is historic city of Roswell here in Georgia. Shops, art and restaurants. I've driven through it but haven't walked around yet. It seems there are a lot of quaint little towns all over the U.S. It's such a nice respite from the booming cities and all its trappings. Atlanta is growing with its mixed use communities. It's fun to visit them but they don't compare to the quaint little villages. By the way, I'm going to watch Bill Cunningham, New York tonight!

I just love old downtown areas. My daughter just had her prom at one of the old theaters here in Dallas and it was so neat the kids loved it.

Really pretty. Nice they are maintaining the architecture--we don't have enough of that in the US.
