60 years ago, Solvang was a cute little town, but those decades of tourism have resulted in a campy imitation of an attractive Scandinavian town.

Took a day trip to Solvang traveling from Santa Barbara. Beautiful and short drive from Santa Barbara. A wonderful tourist town with good restaruants and shopping. Very much enjoyed the wine bars.
