Salida and Riverbank host a nice variety of restaurants, from fast food chains to local diners. You can also find great ethnic restaurants, wineries and other interesting dining options throughout the area. The casual neighborhood atmosphere at Nifty’s in Riverbank provides the perfect setting to enjoy a hearty breakfast. The omelettes are always excellent, fluffy and made to order.

Locally owned and operated, Nifty’s has been filling up with locals and visitors for years. Redwood Cafe at Vintage Gardens on Dale Road makes an ideal backdrop for a California-style dinner date. The restaurant, housed in a restored family farmhouse, celebrates the region's fertile abundance and soak-it-all-in lifestyle.

If you’re really hungry, try the rack of lamb or the unbelievably tasty crispy pork schnitzel with mushroom bacon cream sauce. There’s also an excellent selection of salads and lighter fare, along with an impressive wine menu. Salida and Riverbank have a suburban focus, which means that these areas aren’t exactly buzzing with nightlife. However, there are plenty of places to get your hands on some high quality libations and meet new friends. In fact, most neighborhood establishments make it a point to offer a selection of beer, wine and cocktails. If you’re looking for dance clubs and a wider variety of pubs and bars, downtown Modesto -- just a few minutes away — presents lots of opportunities for after-hours fun.

History

The area that now includes Salida and Riverbank was first settled as a ferry harbor. When the railroad extended its tracks into Modesto a few years later, small communities began to cluster alongside the new line. These areas remained mostly rural until the 1980s and 90s when redevelopment projects and a population increase saw Salida and Riverbank flourish into the desirable suburban communities they are today. Riverbank and Salida have their own historical societies dedicated to preserving regional history. Riverbank’s first library now stands as a museum with exhibits celebrating the area’s ties to early agriculture, railroad development and more. Hit downtown Modesto for a more dedicated art scene; you can find a nice collection of museums, galleries and installations throughout the city. The annual Downtown Modesto Art Walk encourages residents to come out and get to know local artists and their work.

Transportation

Stanislaus Regional Transit, or StaRT, serves outer Salida and Riverbank with fixed routes and the county’s dial-a-ride service. These metro buses can be used to travel into Modesto and other nearby areas within Stanislaus County. You probably won’t have much luck hailing a cab from the road in these neighborhoods, though they are served by local transport services — you’ll just have to call to arrange a pick-up. You can also use Uber to instantly connect with local drivers using your phone. While ample opportunity for recreational biking and walking exist, most people here prefer to use their cars for day-to-day transportation. Parking tends to be casual at most places, with free or cheap options available at popular destinations. Expect to pay for parking if you plan to attend an event in downtown Modesto, though.

You can expect to pay anywhere between $1.50 and $3.00 for mass transit fare into Modesto. Buy a discounted ticket bundle or a pre-paid Fast Fare card if you plan to use metro transit a lot. If you stop at a local establishment for a beer, you’ll probably be charged somewhere around five bucks depending on the brew and the place.

Familiar places like Trader Joe’s and WinCo sit next to specialty grocery stores like wholesale outlets, natural food stores and international markets. You can also find department stores like Kohl’s and Target. Salida’s Antique Warehouse houses more than 90 vendors selling collectibles and antiques. If you’re looking for furniture, art and decor items that you won’t find in your run-of-the-mill box store this is the place to do it. If you get tired while treasure-hunting in the 12,000 square foot space, sit down and enjoy a complimentary coffee or soda. Open every day, they also hold regular events and promotions so check the calendar. If you crave items that catch your eye and soothe your soul, head into central Modesto and check out Intrinsic Elements. This boutique carries all kinds of out-of-the-ordinary clothes, accessories, candles, jewelry and gems. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, either.

With 8 developed acres and nearly 50 undeveloped acres of wilderness. There’s play equipment for the kids, public barbecues and picnic tables. The park sits adjacent to the Stanislaus River, where you can launch your boat or fish from the shoreline. Walking and biking trails run through the park, and you can even bring a tent and camp overnight in some areas. At Halloween, Jacob Myers transforms into a spooky haunted forest with a family friendly hayride. Most Salida parks do not allow dogs, so if you want to take your pooch along, Loyal Duke’s Dog Park on Holman Avenue is your best bet. This enclosed space welcomes friendly dogs to come enjoy some off-leash play. It’s free to use, just make sure to be courteous and clean up after your pet.
