BUSINESS AND MORE Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail – Ralph Waldo Emerson Teknova
here is plenty to discover in San Benito County, and as a result, tourism is big business. With numerous entertainment options and outdoor activities, San Benito County is a popular place to get away from it all for a day or a weekend, and since the area has something for everyone, it’s also a great place to plan a vacation. Over 250,000 people visit the newly designated Pinnacles National Park each year. When you factor in the growing agri-tourism numbers and the people traveling to the area to visit destination wineries, organic farms, ranches, and quaint inns, those numbers grow even larger. Add to that the travelers taking part in the old world charm of Hollister, Tres Pinos, Paicines and New Idria, the historical aspects of San Juan Bautista, or the cultural offerings of El Teatro Campesino and it’s easy to see why San Benito County has become a Central Coast destination.
