This is a city with a sense of community. From its earliest years as Clark Colony, visitors have discovered that it’s a great place to come to, and have made it one of the fastest growing cities in the Salinas Valley. It’s managed to keep its small town charm, however, and is a blend of rural and suburban lifestyles in the midst of booming agricultural activities.

Positioned right smack-dab in the middle of the Valley between the coastal Santa Lucia mountains on one side and the Gabilan Mountains on the other, its central location makes it a great jumping off point for outdoor adventures, wine tasting and exploration of the region.

The town celebrates in October with a family-oriented Harvest Festival in the historic downtown that is filled with music, art, food, crafts and artisans selling their wares. Here, celebrating together is key to this forward thinking community.
