We welcome your visit to Solvang CA!
Solvang is about a half hour north from my home town of Santa Barbara. It is a cute place filled with many shops with trinkets and little cafe's. I hardly ever went in all of my years in Santa Barbara, but every once in a while we would go because we had someone visiting and it is a fun tourist attraction. Just to go and look... is a good time. Yesterday I flew home to Santa Barbara. My friend Kirsten who I used to hang out with ALL the time now lives in San Francisco drove down to visit me this weekend and she even picked me up from the airport. She is awesome and we have been having a blast. We decided this morning to go to Solvang and have lunch and just look around for an hour. It was charming and pleasant until my nephew William got some fruit stuck in his throat. He wasn't too happy after that and it was time to leave. At that point we were ready to go anyway... so it was all good. We all enjoyed our little trip to Solvang today.
