Flaunting ubiquitous Danish heritage and influenced architecture, Solvang is the south Californian little Denmark nestled atop the semi-arid Santa Ynez Valley. The city is renowned for being Santa Barbara’s richest wine country with a pulsating festive scene where visitors come to stomp on grapes and make their own wine. The early-1800’s Old Mission Santa Ines is a Franciscan Church, a revered place with intricate murals worth viewing.
Strolling through the village, you can find a row of authentic Danish bakeries and bars endowed with old-world European charm. A unique dining option called farm-to-table cuisine is a lifetime experience with a riveting backdrop of Santa Ynez hills. Solvang’s Motorcycle Museum is a quirky exhibit of retro American, European and Japanese motorbikes, a well-maintained collection like nowhere else in the country. Santa Ynez Valley has rolling meadows and lush grasslands that create an excellent destination for cycling, hiking and camping with your family. A miniature horse-riding ranch called Ostrichland has scenic views of Lake Cachuma and the surrounding national forest. Boutique shopping is also popular among tourists who can explore the 150 stylish stores selling impeccable items and gifts. As an age-old tradition, your furry friends will be offered treats at every store you visit in Solvang!
