I love living here, for Hollister has so many opportunities for the outdoors-men, entertainment, and the increasing job growth. I also like how the schools here really provide opportunities for their students, such as involving students in community service and having many clubs for all interests.

Hollister is a nice town with mostly nice people. In the 18 years I lived there, all the neighbors I'd had, even though some had come and gone, were genuinely kind people. It's relatively quiet as well, so long as you don't mind dogs barking occasionally. People of all ages live in my particular neighborhood. Anywhere from 90 years old to children living with their young parents live comfortably in the small houses that dot the street.
It's a great place to live! The people are friendly and there are plenty of opportunities. Larger cities are within driving distance and there is a bounty of natural beauty.
