My partner and I are doing a short tour starting in San Diego and going up to San Fran and my partner being an English teacher really wants to stop by Salinas for the Steinbeck Festival (pure coincidence it's on).
Has anyone been to the festival before, was it any good and is it worth actually staying in Salinas or driving in? We're basically only passing through and staying for one night so we want to make the most of the time we have there.
If we do stay outside of the area, is it easy to find parking?
Any help would be fab.
