Empowering Professionals: California: Hollister

Hollister Clothes or the City of Hollister?  Bathrooms?  Hmmm...  Can this sign be real?

Street Signs

When I think of Hollister, I think of the city...  Sitting snug between Highway 101 and Highway 5, when we have to pass through it on our way to Los Angeles.  An area that we never really think of, except when we want to go 4X4'ing...  So when the brand Hollister started becoming popular, we giggled...  Since we would never really want to wear a shirt from there, since it was our backyard growing up.  But I guess it's kind of cool that it is becoming internationally known!

And "Los Banos" makes us giggle too...  With a "tilde" over the "n" it becomes "bathrooms"...  But it was named by the Spanish after a natural springs that bubble up in the area.

So the next time you see Hollister or Los Banos...  You can smile too!
