Salton City, California, USA

Salton City is a census-designated place (CDP) in Imperial County, California, United States. The population was 978 at the 2000 census. Although maps (such as those seen at Google Maps) at first glance show Salton City to be a sizable community, in fact very few of the surveyed streets and roads were ever developed. The town was developed in the 1950s as a resort community on the Salton Sea, but as the salinity of the already highly polluted sea rose, very little development took place and much of what was built - including the city's marina - was abandoned.
