Hollister, California is a small town located in San Benito County. It has one High School called San Benito High School, where most of the kids in San Benito County go. Most people refer to it as "The High School."

West Side and Northside are where most of the poor people live and where most of the gang activity takes place. EastSide is where the lower income-middle class live, some gang activity occurs there. And SouthSide is where the rich people live.

Hollister does not have much to do for young teens without transportation, most just walk target like it's a mall.

Hollister is often confused with the store Hollister Co. People will always ask if it's a beach town. When you respond no they will then ask if there is even a Hollister store in Hollister. Hollister Co. ad Hollister, California HATE eachother. Hollister Co. wanted Hollister, CA to change it's name even though Hollister CA has been here WAY longer. Rediculous.

Hollister is a very beautiful place. It is almost surrounded by mountains and has a lot of open fields. Agriculture is a big thing in this town.

Becausue of Hollister's high Hispanic population, it has a ton of delicious authentic taquerias, panaderias, super mercados, etc.

If you move to the right area of Hollister, I'm sure you will love it there. Kind of.
