Google has a very interesting feature of it’s mapping system called Street View. Basically, a special car from Google drove around Salida in November of 2008, photographing everything in 360 degrees. Then, a super computer program stitched the films into an interesting virtual tour of Salida.
Unfortunately, much of it was done on a gray cloudy day, so things look a bit grim! Regardless, Google Street View is a great way to check out properties and visit the area virtually.
The navigation system is a bit clunky, but double click on the arrows, and drag your mouse around, and you can move down the street, and turn at the intersections.
