Take a Stroll through Historic Downtown Hollister in Central California

The eastern gateway destination of Pinnacles National Park, Hollister boasts a charming historic downtown district surrounded by award-winning wineries, picturesque rolling hills, golf courses, sprawling ranches and organic orchards and farmlands. It’s authentic Central California countryside with a downtown hub made up of specialty shops, galleries and boutiques, and a superb selection of restaurants.

One of the best ways to explore Hollister’s downtown district is to talk one of the Self-Guided Walking Tours that focus on the city’s art, architecture and geology. Through murals, sculptures, terrazzo and architectural design features, the public art pieces add a vibrant atmosphere to the downtown whilst portraying the stories of the history, nature, people and commerce of Hollister and San Benito County. From a totem pole in a community garden to the artistically etched canopy roof at the Superior Court building, a mural in a tunnel to a painted utility box, there are over 20 colorful stops to visit on the self-guided public art walking tour of downtown Hollister. Not to mention the fascinating architecture with historic styles ranging from Victorian to Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Downtown Hollister Public Art Walking Tour was created in partnership with the San Benito County Arts Council, City of Hollister, Hollister Downtown Association, San Benito County Chamber of Commerce and San Benito County Historical Society.
