National Steinbeck Center
Making a trip to Salinas has been a goal of mine ever since we first came to California. It is the hometown of John Steinbeck. The town and surrounding agricultural valley provided for Steinbeck some very rich material for his writings. The first stop we made( after attending worship services in Salinas) was Steinbeck's home where he lived the first 17 years of his life. It is also where he wrote some of his shorter stories as The Red Pony.
