Salinas is an urban area located just outside the southern portion of the Greater Bay Area and 10 miles southeast of the mouth of the Salinas River. The city is located at the mouth of the Salinas Valley, roughly eight miles from the Pacific Ocean, and it has a climate more influenced by the ocean than the interior.

Salinas is known as the "Salad Bowl of the World" for its large, vibrant agriculture industry.
