Solvang Overview

Solvang, California is a charming European-style town with a population of around 5,000 people. Who would have thought Denmark was so close to LA? Solvang is designed to resemble a small Danish town, and to keep it authentic the store employees are dressed in Danish traditional clothes. The town has gentle rolling hills, windmills, picturesque streets, horse drawn carriages, horse ranches, animal feeding, and wineries, all in Danish atmosphere and architecture. However, in recent years it has allowed "non-Danish" businesses to join the growth of the city.

Moreover, within a few minutes of driving, the Nojoqui Falls can be reached. After a short hike, visitors can see the 164-foot waterfall as they are surrounded by trees.

Another attraction that brings numerous visitors to Solvang is the wine tasting rooms. Although the city is just a few miles away from the Santa Ynez wine country, some like to visit tasting rooms that are within walking distance and enjoy the ambiance of doing so in Solvang.
