Acreage, Ranches and Beautiful Subdivisions. This scenic stretch of highway 36 west off I5 leads all the way to the coast. Homes usually include acreage on this side of town and quite possibly a stunning view. As you drive out Highway 36 West you can expect to see barns, horses and other livestock. There are pockets of subdivisions off the main highway, along with rural home sites, and cattle ranches. Driving further west offers tranquil, quiet living where love stock are welcome and yet still close to town.
