The way to Hollister hasn’t changed much since the first ranchers and farmers settled here. Winding roads go over hills and past wide-open pastures where cows lazily graze and sheep and goats nibble happily along nearby. The line between busy town and back country beauty is a subtle transition, the best of both worlds.

The City’s rich cultural history is reflected in its historic downtown district. A walking tour takes you past architecturally diverse homes from the 1800s. Styles include Craftsman, Neo-classical revival, Mission, Period and Tudor, charming icons of the past in today’s neighborhoods. Historic downtown is also dynamic, filled with an eclectic mix of restaurants, specialty stores, craft beer breweries, and more.

Get out of town for a trip to Pinnacles National Park, Hollister Hills Vehicular Recreation Area or wind your way along the San Benito County Wine Trail. Roll the windows down and enjoy the country air.
