A Solvang Walking Tour
Start your day with breakfast at an authentic Danish restaurant or bakery. Don't miss the popular aebleskiver-deliciously light and airy Danish pancake balls dusted with powdered sugar and served with raspberry jam. Meander around the tidy, pedestrian-friendly village to enjoy flower-lined streets as well as picturesque architecture including several windmills, a clock tower that plays seasonal tunes plus statues of Hans Christian Andersen and the Little Mermaid. Be sure to look for ornamental storks perched on roofs-they are considered good luck in Denmark and Solvang!
Four Days in Solvang & The Santa Ynez Valley
Stroll the European-style streets around the village of Solvang; hop aboard the historic horse-drawn Solvang Trolley for a tour or rent a "surrey cycle" to roll through the village. Sample the Danish bakeries and foods and shop for art and antiques. Learn about history at the Elverhøj Museum of History & Art or the 1804 Old Mission Santa Inés. In the summer, enjoy professional theater productions under the stars from PCPA at Solvang Festival Theater. Year-round entertainment happens nearby at the Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez offering 24/7/365 gaming and weekly top-name concerts and live entertainment in the Samala Showroom.
