Old Town has seen better days. That said, some of the old buildings are sweet and a few independent stores are doing a nice job attempting to revitalize a stretch of a few blocks. . Combined with a visit to the Steinbeck Center, the drive over highway 68 to reach Salinas was charming. I was there in the spring and the Lupens bloomed, transforming the hills with a carpet of blue flowers...Don't expect much, but the 2 last blocks before the Steinbeck Center seemed to be the more interesting ones.
