Weekend Getaway to Solvang, USA
Solvang is an excellent choice for a California getaway vacation!
It’s an easy drive from Los Angeles and Orange County, but feels as if you’ve you’re really getting away.
The town was founded by a group of Danish settlers seeking to create a new community in the warm California sunshine.
They were happy to embrace their lives as Americans, but also maintained strong ties to their Scandinavian traditions.
Danish culture places great importance on family and hospitality, which is ideal for a town that now thrives as a tourist destination.
I’ve enjoyed trips to Solvang many times over the years and it’s always a good time.
There is something new to discover each time I visit, so I keep coming back.

As always, I had a great time on my Solvang weekend getaway.
Since I stayed at a hotel right in town, I was able to walk to restaurants, wine tasting, shopping, museums and activities.
Can’t wait to go back again!
