With newly a revitalized downtown and a rich historical presence, Soledad will surely surprise the uninitiated. Visitors can explore Soledad's many wine tasting rooms, take a Soledad family mission trip, hike Pinnacles National Park, or escape the hustle and bustle at Arroyo Seco campground in the Los Padres National Forest.
