Solvang, a quick 45-minute drive from Santa Barbara, is a truly unique village rife with activities, seasonal festivals, wine-tasting rooms, and pleasant dining. Huddled in the Santa Ynez Valley that looks and smells like Christmas year-round, with twinkling lights at night and baked goods served fresh every morning.
If you’re in town during the month of September make sure not to miss one of the town’s signature events, Solvang Danish Days, which kicks off with a parade of Danish costumes and horse-drawn wagons. Explore the Old World artisans marketplace, watch Viking-age re-enactments, toast your neighbor in the beer & wine garden, watch (or compete in) the aebleskiver-eating contest, and enjoy old-fashioned storytelling by a local “Hans Christian Anderson.” This is a truly unique and memorable event for visitors of all ages.
