The city of Salida is located in Stanislaus County, California, just to the northwest of Modesto along Highway 99. Roughly 14,000 people live in Salida, part of the Modesto Metropolitan Statistical Area. A significant industry in Salida is the cultivation of almonds, including a major nearby processing facility.
The history of Salida dates back to 1870, when the Central Pacific Railroad built a railroad station with the name salida, Spanish for ‘exit’. As the town began to develop, it was laid out in the shape of a triangle. Today, Downtown Salida continues to follow this original town layout. Landscaping includes mature oak trees and a walk trail down the middle of Broadway Avenue.
