Located and is part of the Monterey County in California, Salinas is the most populous in the county and has been considered to be the “Salad Bowl of the World” because of the city’s growing and vibrant agriculture industry. Deemed to be the region’s “green gold” as agriculture continued to be a significant industry, and the industry has helped make Salinas one of the wealthiest cities in the United States based on the per capita income. The town has fueled and funneled a $2 billion industry in agriculture as it is now supplying almost 80% of the United States’ lettuce, artichokes, and many other crops that have been distributed all over the country. Living in the city is more expensive compared to other metro areas in the United States, as it is mostly driven by the real estate price, which is deemed to be twice more expensive.
